 Check it out:  We're trying something new this week!  Look over the list of what is coming first.  Then decide if you would like to see a bit more in your box.  (Some of our members have been reminiscing our co-op a few years ago when, for the same price, we got a bit more!)  For this week I am order extras to be added to your bag for $8.  It will give you a chance to see what the share could look like if we were to raise our prices.  I have hesitated for a long time to do this, opting instead to decrease the quantity in our box as the cost of produce has gone up.  However, I find myself searching the shelves of the local grocery store, buying things I still need but unhappy with the cost or the quality.  I want your feedback!  I'm not sure I can always offer it as an extra, but the items listed are things I wanted so I hope you concur.  Talk to your host.  I'd prefer to have each group decide if they would like to move in the direction of paying a bit more for a better selection in the box.
 

Our Redlands host is back in town.  Welcome back, Jena!  She is sadly unable to continue hosting after September and we are in the process of looking for a new host and hope to make this transition a smooth one.   I want to give the members of the group first dibs on the hosting spot (free produce and eggs!), but if no one is able, we will search outside the group.  If you or someone you know lives in the Redlands area (somewhere between SW 232 Street and SW 248 Street) please contact me!  I would also prefer to find someone who can commit to at least one year.

What are we getting this week? This is still a preliminary list.  Substitutions may occur on occasion.

Preliminary Order for July 15th 2014

Summer's bounty is here!  Hope you enjoy the selection.  Items in green are regionally grown.   In honor of Germany's World Cup victory, I am going to recommend that you google "German Potato Leek Soup."  The recipe looks like a good match for some of our items this week.

We may have a few extra boxes from various locations. Current pick-up sites include: Homestead, Redlands, Cutler Bay, SW Kendall, South Miami, and Miami Springs. Miami Springs is not actually recieving a delivery this time. If you are a member of this group, we may be able to coordinate something with South Miami. Call me if you're interested.

In an effort to switch things up a bit, I moved things around.  I have put the bananas in the fruit share.  I enjoy pureeing extra frozen bananas and sometimes sprinkling them with chopped peanuts.  It makes a wonderful ice-cream substitute!  Also, we had a little extra money in the budget as credit from the figs we did not get last time, so you may see a bit more on this list than usual.  Sadly, figs were not available to us this time either.  We have never gotten donut peaches.  Their size and shape is unique.  I hope you enjoy them!

This is a preliminary list, so substitutions may happen.  I still need to confirm the local mangoes and check on the black grapes.  If they happen to not be seedless, I plan to substitute with some dapple supreme pluots.  Hope this helps with your planning!

This week's box will include:
Full ($52)   Half  ($28)

Avocado - LOCAL
Broccoli
Red Beets w/ Top
Choice Cucumbers
Choice Green Peppers FL

2 heads Romaine lettuce
Arugula

Clean Meats:  Prices listed below, subject to change.
I have on hand turkey hot dogs and turkey bacon, Applegate sausages; spinach and feta as well as roasted red pepper, ABF boneless skinless chicken breasts and organic bone-in chicken thighs, plus a little Canadian bacon.  These items have been frozen to preserve quality before or by the freeze by date. Limited quantities. Place order now!  Text or email me today. 786-251-1000 or healthyhabitsproduce@gmail.com

There has been a request for whole chickens and organic chicken breasts, but I need more orders before I can get a case.  Let me know if you are interested in these items.  We are having a supply issue with the pork, so it's temporarily unavailable.  Let me know what you would be interested in for next time.  If you want strictly organic, you may have to order a half case.  A full case of whole chickens comes with 8 birds. Cases of breasts and thighs have 15 trays.

Enjoy the local treats that are in season.  Our avocados are just getting into full swing.  Mangoes will be available in plentiful supply, but for a short time.  Stock up and freeze for future smoothies.  Here's another idea: we love avocado and mango together in a salad with romaine lettuce and a bit of red onion.  A friend of mine shared her family's favorite salad dressing which goes so nicely with this combination: equal parts of lime juice, plain yogurt and honey.  Happy grilling as you celebrate the Forth of July!  Don't miss the invitation below for a Dinner's Done Freezer Meal Workshop.  RSVP needed by Wednesday.

Summer is here and even though we do see some transition in seasonal items, I think you will enjoy the quantity and variety in this week's box.  Check it out!  As I am out of town for this month, please check directly with your local host to see what extras like honey and oils are available.  If she does not have what you need, place your order for our first delivery in July.  Just checking us out for the first time?  See our list of locations posted in the right column on our blog at HealthyHabitsProduce.blogspot.com.

Our goal is to provide the best selection year round and to help you get the most for your money in both quantity and quality.  All produce is certified organic.  Substitutions may occur.  We look forward to seeing you this Tuesday!  Don't miss the online payment options available only on our newsletter.  Not getting it?  Email Cyndi to request being added to our mailing list.

Our local egg supply has been growing.

Special thanks to Dave and Isabel Schieferly for inviting our community to their farm to see how they are building an organic sustainable farm from the ground up!  We love your eggs!  Dave and Isabel are supplying us in Redlands and Homestead with pastured eggs.  Their chickens are fed all non-GMO, soy free, organic feed in addition to munchies growing on the farm!  These eggs are $6.50 dozen.  Limited supply.  We may have extra available this month.  Contact me directly by text if interested by Monday noon.  Available in Homestead, Redlands and SW Kendall locations only for June.
Our standard option for $4.75 dozen is either local pastured conventional eggs or organic free roaming.  Supply for this organic variety was rather tight when the new year rolled in.  (Higher demand for organics this time of year.)  Things seem to be settling down and supply is more steady so we will order the organic free roaming unless unavailable.  Local pastured conventional is our substitute.  The price for the organic free roaming will be going up next pickup as our costs have gone up again.  Starting June 17 the new price will be $5.10.
Organic Coconut Flour:  Our family eats Gluten Free so I am always looking for good wholesome foods to supplement.  Tropical Traditions has a ton of recipes online using this healthy, high protein flour.  $10 per bag, 2.2 lb each.  7 bags available.

All Natural Insect Bug Repellent 4oz. For $6.50 bottle: ingredients include: purified water, org virgin coconut oil, org jojoba, plant based emulsifying wax, grapefruit seed extract, org virgin palm oil, and org essential oils of citronella, lemongrass, catnip, peppermint and tansy.  8 bottles available
