Zucchini & Zest was started in order to make good quality organic produce more accessible to more people at a reasonable price. There is a misconception that organic food is either too expensive and even unnecessary. What most fail to understand is that eating healthily is not necessarily more costly. If the medical costs of following an unhealthy diet are considered, this misperception will change.
Our bags are chosen with your health in mind. We’ve included a variety of fruit and vegetables packed with nutrients. So, you can be sure that your family is getting a broad spectrum of nutrients weekly, giving them the best chance at good health.
Although our produce is not always certified organic, we try to source from ethical and local farmers. We personally check up on where the produce is grown and ensure that you are getting the healthiest produce on the market, almost always, free of chemicals and nasty pesticides.
We strive to fill our bags with a variety of good quality, organic (mostly) seasonal produce that is balanced in nutrient value and is your “rainbow in a bag”. We believe that it is essential to eat a “rainbow” everyday. By ingesting a variety of coloured fruit and vegetables you are getting a broad spectrum of phytonutrients. We also offer you the option of filling your own bags from our list of extras.
We also offer support in the form of recipe ideas with guidelines on how to use these superfoods. Our blog will also support you on your road to health, sharing the latest, evidence based, research on various health issues. Join us on social media to share recipes, ask questions or even just for some recipe inspiration to make your mealtime both tasty and, above all, healthy.
This is where health starts. Health is wealth, not gold and silver. We are not created only to survive, but to thrive! Join us on your road to better health.
