Several food and meal home delivery services have come into being lately. The advantage of skipping trips to the market is quite appealing. Being able to open the front door to a delivery of fresh food and ready-to-eat meals, just waiting to be served up, is dream come true. What’s kept us from placing food delivery orders of our own? David and I eat a whole food, plant-based diet (vegan), and our options have been limited. That is until now. And let me tell you, the wait was well worth it! Home delivery from Out of the Box Collective did more than impress us. We were excited about receiving The Vegan Box. It was truly a specialized gift box, chock full of delightful surprises that were carefully packed within.
Out of the Box Collective is a Los Angeles farm-to-home market delivery service. They’ve been in operation since 2010, and specialize in sourcing local foods from farmers, ranchers, fishermen, bee-keepers, artisans and many others. The boxes are curated, and have a weekly theme, with selections from all the food groups. The boxes are created around a weekly meal plan with recipes using all the ingredients in the box. You don’t need to follow the enclosed recipes, although they are awesome and delicious. You can be as creative as you wish and come up with your own recipes.
Out Of The Box Collective home delivery is everything we’ve been waiting for. The food boxes are 100% customizable. You get exactly want you want and need. A variety of box sizes and diet options are offered. Before each delivery you’ll receive an itemized list of what will be in your upcoming box. After reviewing the list you can log onto the website to swap out anything you don’t want. Simply remove unwanted items. You can easily use your applied credit at The Market to add new items and order other foods you enjoy.
We did not know beforehand the contents of our food box. We knew we were receiving The Vegan Box, but beyond that it was quite simply a wonderful surprise. The delightful thing for us is we received vegan products we had never had before. If they had not been in our box we may never have had the chance to try them.
Out Of The Box Collective serves up locally-grown and ethically-made farm-to-kitchen food from Southern California. As you can see from our photos, The Produce Boxes come packed with beautiful fresh fruit and vegetables. And looks aren’t deceiving. Everything was just as delicious as it was beautiful!
Out Of The Box Collective offers several different Food Box options and an awesome selection of foods in the The Market. Besides the different sized produce boxes (fresh fruit, fresh vegetable or fresh fruits and vegetables), Out Of The Box Collective also offers specialty boxes (which includes The Vegan Box), meal boxes and juicing boxes.
Our favorite is The Vegan Box: The Vegan Box includes a balanced selection of fresh, local, vegan-friendly ingredients, pantry items, and basic staples for the week. If you’re trying an exclusively plant-based diet for the first time, this is a very delicious way to kick off your healthy diet, as you explore the weekly selections of exciting new vegan products that Out of the Box Collective has to offer.
Our box contained Cranberry Beans, Smoked Almonds, and Semolina Pasta Organic Rigatoni. I had never heard of cranberry beans and I can’t wait to cook and serve them up in a creative recipe!
We also received fresh raspberries that were so sweet with our homemade granola. The Three Trees Unsweetened Organic Almond Milk made it that much more delicious. Not to mention how said raspberries tasted with our delightful jar of New Earth Original Super Pro-Biotic Coconut Yogurt. Oh my gosh! We loved it!
Now, I’m here to tell you that I’ve never had orange juice as delicious as Out of the Box Orange Juice. A mixture of sweet oranges that I wish all grew in my backyard! We only grow a few that were in the mix.
This is just a sampling of everything we received in our box. And to sweeten the deal, there also was the delectable homemade apple pie. How about that?
We can’t say enough good things about Out of the Box Collective. We highly recommend this outstanding company to all who live in Southern California. If you want fresh farm to table food Out of the Box Collective is for you. Delivered right to your front door. It doesn’t get much better than that!
