Organic food delivery Kansas City
The grass is getting greener, the birds are chirping earlier, and the sun is shining longer—we’ve sprung forward! At this time of year, I think about just how convenient “fast food” is. My family and I are enjoying our favorite outdoor activities on sunny evenings, and unless someone is grilling, I don’t feel like taking time out to cook. Even if I’m planning a picnic, I still want something healthy and delicious to bring without a lot of work. Hello, Conveniently Natural’s ready-made meals brought to you by Door to Door Cuisine.
Kim Gordon and her husband, Brian, started their healthy prepared-meals business in Kansas City to “provide food that helps remove the obstacles of healthy eating–time, money, and inconvenience, ” says Kim. As parents of Isabelle (age 6) and Adrienne (age 4), they found themselves doing the weeknight juggling act we’re all familiar with. Their next baby, Conveniently Natural, born in 2011, came from a passion to make life simpler and bring Good Food to more people, which sounds just like our mission at Door to Door Organics. It was a natural fit to partner with them and deliver dishes like Basil Pesto Pasta, Sweet Potato Enchiladas, Vegetable Pad Thai, and Vegetable Frittata directly to our customers. The weekly Door to Door Cuisine menu of local, vegan, gluten- and soy-free, heat-and-serve meals rotates so there’s always something new and exciting to try.
Not only are their prepared meals made with organic, and sometimes locally grown, real-food ingredients, but they’re so “forkin’ healthy, ” as Kim Gordon puts it. “We know we have a big responsibility in creating meals that nourish and, at times, heal people, ” Kim says. “Making food for people is such a personal thing that we take special care in the intention and love that goes into it, ” says Kim. I saw this first-hand when I met Head Chef Julie Lopez.
Julie kindly greeted me with a fresh vegetable frittata and breakfast potatoes when I visited the Conveniently Natural kitchen one recent morning. Julie studied at the Los Angeles Culinary Art Institute and worked for Patina Catering, a leading caterer in Hollywood. That’s impressive and made me wonder why she chose culinary arts as her profession. “I get to play with my food every day!” says Julie. That’s a great reason!
