SPUD BEST ORGANIC GROCERY DELIVERY IN BC AND ALBERTA

SPUD BEST ORGANIC GROCERY DELIVERY IN BC AND ALBERTA

SPUD BEST ORGANIC GROCERY DELIVERY British Columbia Alberta Get $20 OFF when you spend $60 with promo code "instanomss"

SPUD.ca is an online grocery store that brings local, organic and sustainable groceries directly to your door. They have a wide range of local and organic produce that follows traceable high standards. Best of all, they are committed to reducing food waste (they are the lowest waste grocery in Canada!) I love how SPUD is super convenient and allows you to make changes right up to 8pm the day before your scheduled delivery!

PSA: $20 OFF your first order of $60 or more: Promo Code “Instanomss”

 

I love shopping online because I love the convenience and how much time it saves me. And I don’t have to worry about forgetting to get that _______ (milk, eggs, bananas, avocados) that’s on my grocery list. You can create a “shopping list” like me and add it to a standing order for weekly deliveries. This I will never run out of staples or have to go back to the supermarket!

 

Zero Waste Grocery

Food waste is a huge problem in this country. We’ve all heard that $31 billion worth of food is wasted in Canada each year – that’s 40% of the total food produced in Canada. When you consider all the time, work, and resources that go to produce that food, just to be wasted, that number is even more staggering.

  • No In-Store Displays – obviously, because they are an online store!
  • Only ordering what is needed – some fresh items like my favourite BeFresh dips are only made when a customer orders them.
  • No need for huge inventory – daily deliveries to the warehouse to fill customer orders. 80% of inventory is turned over every 48 hours
  • Imperfect Products – they sell imperfect produce

 

Delivery

  • Free delivery with minimum $50 orders or you will be charged a $4 minimum order surcharge
  • Choose your delivery dates. There are usually two scheduled deliveries to your area for free. You can also choose free Pickup or Express delivery.
  • Delivery options for areas in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary and Edmonton.
  • Your grocery order is delivered in reusable deliver bins. Using bins helps us eliminate unnecessary packaging, reduce waste and lower our impact on the planet!
  • You are charged a small deposit for each bin and is refunded back after the bin is returned. SPUD will pick up the bin when they drop off your next order or you can arrange for a driver to come by the next time they are in your neighbourhood!
  • All your produce and groceries are insulated with ice packs and dry ice to keep everything cold until you are home to open it.

 

 

 

Quality

SPUD promises 100% guaranteed satisfaction and I have never had any problems with my food. In fact, most of my produce delivered is much nicer and fresher than store bought. IF something you receive isn’t up to par, they will refund you pronto! I also really love the quality of their sustainable meat selections – for example, local farmers like MapleHill, Farmcest and Two Rivers in my area raise their animals without antibiotics and fed no animal by-products. They are also grain-free.

Not only is a large selection of organic food but SPUD.ca also has a great selection of health & beauty products, vitamins and supplements, pet food and household products (cleaning supplies that are eco-friendly, baby supplies, etc.)

 

Price

Although it is pricier than some supermarkets, I love that they offer organic and sustainable products. I am willing to pay a little extra if I know that the produce and meats are traceable, comes from local farmers and has a better quality overall. The last thing I would want is to buy sub-par products which end up in the waste.

BREVILLE CITRUS PRESS REVIEW | Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

BREVILLE CITRUS PRESS REVIEW | Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

BREVILLE CITRUS PRESS REVIEW Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Nothing says Good Morning like a fresh glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or grapefruit juice (aside from coffee of course)! We recently purchased the Breville Citrus Press. We are so LOVE with it that we’ve made a glass of fresh juice every morning for breakfast. There’s something about drinking fresh cold orange juice from a glass that is so satisfying!

I’ve been eyeing this small kitchen appliance for two years now. I guess I’ve mentioned this enough times to Dave that he finally caved and bought this for me! This is an expensive citrus juicer with a price tag of $199. Even though it is pricey, I feel that it is a very good investment. For the person who is looking to make fresh orange juice, lemonade, and flavored water, the motorized parts takes all the difficulties, frustration and pain out of manually extracting juice from the citrus fruits. It takes less then 10 seconds to make a full glass of delicious juice!

 

BREVILLE CITRUS PRESS REVIEW Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Compact and Convenient

The Breville Citrus Press is compact and convenient. It doesn’t take up a lot of counter space. We live in a small condo apartment and counter real estate is so limited! It fits snuggly between my stove, my toaster oven and Nespresso – we didn’t even need to relocate other appliances.

Although this citrus press is small in size, Breville has made it super convenient and easy to clean. All of the removable non-electrical parts are completely dishwasher safe. It is easy to take apart. You can also simply rinse after each use!

The reamer comes in only one size. It works universally with different sizes of citrus fruits – lemons, limes, oranges and even giant red ruby grapefruits. I hated the vintage juicer my mom has. Grapefruits would never fit properly on it and I would always need adjust the fruit to get the sides. In the end, juices would splatter all over the counter (and worse all over myself).

You do not need to press hard on the large handle bar to extract the juices. Simply hold it gently and press down. That’s it!

 

BREVILLE CITRUS PRESS REVIEW Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Cons

One thing though, I wish the pulp filter was deeper. After a few squeezes, you will need to scoop out the pulp in the shallow pulp container. I guess this is a good way to force you to either eat the pulp right away or to add it to your orange juice.

Pros

Aesthetically this is a pretty sleek juicer. It has that urban, contemporary slender design. It is easy to use. It extracts juice efficiently and quietly.

BREVILLE CITRUS PRESS REVIEW Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

One Glass At A Time

One glass at a time. I prefer this over store bought citrus juices. It guarantees every glass is fresh and full of nutrients and vitamins. Making fresh citrus juice at home ensures there are no harmful substances or additives.

 

It’s hard to imagine buying cartons of OJ from big boxed stores ever again now that I have both the Breville Citrus Press and the Breville Juice Fountain.
