A Week of Meals with Door to Door Organics

A Week of Meals with Door to Door Organics
I recently participated in a challenge with Door to Door Organics to create a week of menus using the items from their shop only. Since they have so much available including fresh produce, bakery items, meat, beans, grains, hummus, etc., it was not too difficult. 


Door to Door Organics Produce
We love Door to Door Organics for their fresh produce mostly and get the box every other week of fruits and vegetables. For organic produce, it is actually not too expensive and the produce is always nice quality.

Here are the meals that I made throughout the week using Door to Door Organics products.


Monday:

Breakfast- Oatmeal (Bob's Red Mill organic thick rolled oats) with TruRoots chia seeds, sliced almonds and sliced pear
Lunch- Veggie Hummus Wraps- Ezekial 4:9 tortilla, Oasis Mediterranean Cuisine black bean dip, tomatoes, red cabbage, bell peppers, lettuce, onion
Snack- Apple
Dinner- Caribbean Grilled Chicken Salad with red peppers, red onion, mango, black beans, chicken and romaine lettuce (recipe coming soon!)

I love to eat oatmeal most days of the week for breakfast because it is hot, filling and tastes great. I pack it up the night before and take it with me to work. I like the Ezekial tortillas because they are whole grain and you really just need one for a filling meal. We have been making tacos with these, etc.


Tuesday

Breakfast- Stonyfield Greek yogurt with Cascadian Farms granola
Lunch- Rainbow Flatbread Pizza using Ezekial tortillas and Andrew and Everett shredded mozzarella cheese
Snack- Kind bar
Dinner- Grilled Corridor Sausage Eastern Market Bratwurst with grilled asparagus and corn on the cob

For lunch, I made my Rainbow Flatbread Pizza with whatever veggies I had on hand from my Door to Door Organics delivery. You can use whatever you have on hand.


Wednesday
Breakfast- Oatmeal with chia seeds and Justin's peanut butter
Lunch- Leftover Caribbean Chicken Salad, organic pear
Snack- Lundberg rice cakes with Justin's peanut butter
Dinner- Apple Butternut Squash Soup

My co-worker/chef in the kitchen made an awesome butternut squash soup this fall and I recreated it at home in a much healthier way right away. When I got 2 butternut squashes in my Door to Door Organics delivery, I knew that this would be a great way to use them. I used the apples from the box as well.

Thursday

Breakfast- Stonyfield Greek yogurt with Cascadian Farms granola, 2 kiwi
Lunch- Leftover Butternut Squash Soup with Food for Life Ezekial 4:9 bread made into garlic bread
Snack- Kind bar
Dinner- Spiralized Pad Thai  

The Spiralized Pad Thai is so good that after trying it at my house one day, my sister went home and made it for herself. That is the best compliment that a cook can get!

Friday

BreakfastOatmeal with chia seeds and Justin's peanut butter
Lunch- Chopped salad with a base of spiralized red cabbage, feta cheese, red onions, etc. and an organic orange
Snack- Lundberg rice cakes with Justin's peanut butter
Dinner- Vegetable ham sandwich and tomato soup- Whole-grain bread with Organic Prairie Hardwood Smoked Ham and a simple homemade tomato soup


Sometimes, I get really busy between work, life events, the blog, etc. and grocery shopping is the last thing that I want to do. Luckily, with Door to Door Organics, you can do all of your shopping online and it is delivered right to your door. There is a $5 delivery fee unless you spend $75 or more, then it is free! 

By menu planning in advance, you can save money by making sure that you have everything that you need for all of your meals and saving you from extra trips from the grocery store. Also, by meal planning, you save money by making sure that you use the ingredients up that you have before they go bad.

For example, when I got a large red cabbage from Door to Door Organics, I included it in a few recipes in order to use it up in time. It is fun creating new recipes in order to use the ingredients that you have. It was super easy to plan my weekly menu with Door to Door Organics. I get so excited when I come home to see what is in my box (even though I know what is going to be in there haha).
