Azure Standard, Here’s What I Got This Month!By
Many of you have asked to see what I get from Azure Standard, our health food co-op each month. Sometimes I just forget to take a picture during the chaos of taking food out of boxes and finding places for everything. This month, I remembered!
I got an organic green cabbage, two jars of Hain mayonnaise, a case of turkey franks, a case of white cheddar cheese, five pounds of organic carrots, a pound of organic baby carrots, 3 organic avocados, 25 pounds of organic sucanat, 3 pounds of organic onions, 5 pounds of baking soda, 20 pounds of organic apples, a case of frozen organic peas, 38 pounds of organic oranges, 50 pounds of organic potatoes (only 5 pounds are in the picture), stevia and a tub of maple syrup yogurt (special treat!). My total was $213…for a LOT of organic food!
Now, you may be wondering, “Laura! What in the world are you going to do with all of those oranges?!” Because wow, 38 pounds of oranges is a lot of oranges! They cost $23 for the entire box, so I got a wonderful deal! We’ve been going through quite a few oranges lately because we’ve been on a Creamy Orange Cooler kick. We’ll also probably make some Orange Muffins. And well…we’ll just eat lots of fresh oranges!
You may also be wondering, “Laura! Why in the world did you buy FIVE pounds of baking soda?” Well, if you recall…we use baking soda and vinegar to make volcanos in our bathtub unclog our drains safely. Plus, I’m working on a homemade laundry detergent recipe, and I needed a lot of baking soda.
And you may be wondering, “Laura! How long will all of this food last you?” And I’d have to tell you that most of it will be gone in about one month’s time. Well, the 50 pounds of potatoes may last us two months. And the sucanat will last us several months. Good grief, we better not eat 25 pounds of sucanat in one month. We can’t have that many Healthy Celebrations!!
