Hi my lovelies,
I hope you are well and staying safe as much as you can during these pandemic times. Now unlike Mr. Johnson I am still very much keeping my mask on and playing cautious. I have a sense that even though the vaccination program is being rolled out here in the UK, we should all still be careful.
COVID has not gone yet people.
That being said ensuring our bodies are fighting fit is a very important element in the race to beat COVID. In our home we have made a number of different changes:
- A cleaning station quipped with antibacterial wipes, antibacterial gel, surgical masks and Dettol spray.
- Limiting our interaction with our loved ones and friends unless we know that they have been vaccinated.
- Taking regular at home PCR tests
- Vitamins supplements everyday that include Vitamin C, D, B12, Omega 6, Iron and Q10
- If and when we are eating out to book outdoor space.
- Switching to Organic food.
Now the last one was a new change and something I have really tried to introduce to our grocery list.
I came across PIKT after a lot of research and loving their ethos which include the below:
- Value for money – Buying organic is not cheap.
- Locally grown and in season products.
- B Corp approved – a clear bonus between Profit and Purpose.
- Plastic free packaging.
- Carbon footprint offset.
Now a note, its not essential to buy all organic but when it comes to fresh produce its important to focus on the Dirty Dozen which are basically items that contain the highest amounts of pesticides.
PIKT which gives you an option of either picking a Ready Made box or Build your own priced from £17 upwards depending on the items you choose.
I went for a Build Your Own box that was a mix off Fruit and Veg, which came to around £50 incl. Post/Package. The items were delivered within the delivery time and was all beautifully packed. This whole box lasted my household for a good couple of weeks. Everything from the juicy apples to the crunchy red onions were all tasty.
So if like me you’re thinking of buying Organic fruit and Veg and not sure where to go, take a look at PIKT and let me know what you think.
