Subscription Box Review
My first glimpse inside the Misfits Market Box for this week. It’s important to be clear that all the packaging used is either recyclable, biodegradable or compostable.
So what is all this stuff?
The first item in my box for this week are two bunches of collards. That’s something that I like about the Misfits Market Box, the larger of the boxes usually includes double the vegetables so that a larger family can have a full serving at mealtime.
I also selected two bunches of scallions. These are great in salads and omelets and pretty much whatever your heart desires.
There were six red pears included in my box as well. Everyone in my house loves pears and in fact I had one of these for lunch today, it was delicious!
Next was the spaghetti squash. What a great veggie to get, right? I love that this can be used in place of pasta and tastes good pretty much all on it’s own and it’s super simple to make to boot!
I also selected beets for this weeks box. I received three which I will surely use in my lunches. I always make these in a “Harvard” glaze like my grandmother used to. It’s a cheat meal but oh so worth it!
My box also included two mangoes. While I’m not a huge mango fan (I find them messy and overly sweet) the kids love them. We just cut these up and use them for lunches!
My box also included eight roma tomatoes. These are personally my favorite tomatoes because they have so much less liquid and seed which I am NOT a fan of. These will be nice in a caprese salad!
Then I received a bag of green beans. While this isn’t quite enough for dinner it will be a nice addition to my weekday lunches!
I also chose a head of cauliflower in my package. I love how long this lasts in the fridge. I will probably rice this and use it in my lunches as well.
I also received a head of green cabbage. I still have the cabbage from my last box – glad it lasts a while! I will use one head for salads and the older one for sauerkraut!
I also selected two bunches of arugala in my box for this week. I LOVE arugala, it has such a peppery bite and will be a great addition to the salads that I make with the cabbage. I always select this when it’s an option.
My box also contained two grapefruits – yum!
As well as four small oranges (these are gone already)! Fruit really doesn’t last in my house.
The final item in my box for this week are these three small yellow squash. These are great sauteed in some olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
So in summary
Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me in great shape in my box from Misfits Market for this week.
Quality: I love that the produce Misfits sends is organic and non-gmo. Everything is usually pretty non-ugly as well
Curation: Considering I selected each of the items… gotta say that I love the curation!
