Disclaimer: I was not paid to write this review or take photographs for this company, although I do know Mike and Laura Muir personally. I just happen to like good food, and they just happen to sell it.
Aren't these fruits and veggies beautiful? I ordered them from Muir Fresh Harvest, a local Salt Lake company that specializes in "bundles," or boxes of yummy produce and fine foods. It's kind of like a co-op, but in my opinion even better. Let me tell you why.
With a co-op, you usually don't know what will come in your box. If you don't like cauliflower, but end up with five pounds of it in your co-op, you're stuck with it. But with Muir Fresh Harvest, Laura Muir posts the contents of each bundle before you order it. So you know what you're buying before you even sign up. The bundles come every two weeks, and I can tell you that the food is so fresh, it lasts a lot longer than what you'll buy in the grocery store.
But what if you get this assortment of food and you don't know quite what to do with it? That's the next best part. Laura Muir provides recipes using your bundle produce on her blog, Fresh Cooking=Happy People. Laura's a talented cook who can turn out a good meal any day of the week. Her recipes are not too difficult and always turn out tasty, which is a plus for people like me who either don't like to cook or just don't really know how.
Admittedly, when I opened the box and found everything so fresh and pretty, I mostly wanted to photograph the food, not eat it. So I took pictures of it all afternoon, moving each piece this way and that until it looked just right. And then the next day I cooked up one of Laura's recipes. Tune in on Monday to see how it turned out.
In the meantime, hop on over to Muir Fresh Harvest and find out what's coming in the next bundle. For $35 plus tax, you'll get a giant box of tasty food. And then look up Fresh Cooking=Happy People to find out what you can do with it.
