Since moving to San Jose, Costa Rica in January, I’ve found a limited amount of all-natural or organic items (mostly produce) in the grocery stores with an adequate label identifying it as such. There is a great company called BioLand that has great snacks, cereals, and other all-natural and organic products, but they are still limited. There isn’t a natural food store with solely organic products, which is disappointing. However, I have since discovered a (tentative) miracle company called NaturaStyle, who will deliver organic and all-natural products to your door. Awesome. The list of items is endless and I’m sure if you request something obscure that they don’t have, they’ll find it. I can’t wait to get going on this and oh how it will be a welcomed change from scouring the grocery stores.
When I was living in Charlotte, I had organic produce delivered to the house every other week. The service was called Absolute Organics (the Web site leaves a lot to be desired, but the products are great) and they have several different packages you can sign up for, but the gist of it is that you get a box of produce either every week or every two weeks left on your doorstep. Wow, how convenient. I definitely ate better while receiving boxes every other week.
I will be placing my order with NaturaStyle this week and will let you know once it gets here how it turns out. I do need to make sure it fits within my monthly grocery budget. If you would like to see a list of organic food delivery services near you, see my page about it. If there is a company not on the list just shoot me a comment and I’ll get it posted.
