Organic Food with One Table – A Journey to Good Health and Happy FamilyAnn
I ordered organic food from online shops many times before but this is my first time with One Table and I’m really impressed with their service and the quality of the products that I’d like to share my experience with you. One Table is an organic food store based in Sydney’s Northern Beaches area. They specialise in providing organic fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts and meats.
I ordered the food on Thursday and have the food delivered on early Tuesday morning the following week. Once the food is delivered, I received an SMS notifying of the successful delivery, very convenient. Let’s have a look at what’s inside my grocery box: corn, golden delicious apples, cavendish bananas, navel oranges, green cabbage, cauliflower, celery, Fuji apple, gold beetroot, multi-fruit sourdough bread and a hand-written welcome message from Judith, the owner of One Table. It was very sweet, thank you Judith!
I received the order in the afternoon, so I grabbed 2 slices of the sourdough bread, popped them in the toaster, spread some peanut butter on top and had them as an afternoon snack together with a golden delicious apple. I must say it was the best bread I ever had, honestly.
The certified organic multi-fruit sourdough was baked at Bill’s certified organic health bakery in the lower Hunter Valley in New South Wales. It doesn’t have a sour taste like other sourdough breads instead, its combination with sultanas, raisins, dried figs and apricots produces a uniquely delicious taste and texture. Best of all, all the ingredients are certified organic and naturally preserved without sulphites. Another thing I like about this bread is that it was baked just at the right temperature, lightly brown and not burnt like many other raisin bread brands you get from the supermarkets. If your kids love eating raisin toasts for breakfast, I’m sure they’ll love this bread.
As you can see from our grocery order, our family consume a lot of vegetables and fruits. Bananas, apples, oranges, corn, pumpkins, cauliflowers and cabbages are our weekly staple food. The organic apples usually come in small sizes so it’s very handy to put an apple in my daughter’s lunch box for her snack and everyone in our family loves eating bananas and oranges.
One Table sources their organic navel oranges from Kambara grower who is a certified organic producer in Victoria. These oranges have a slight sweetness and very juicy. I often use these to make fresh orange juice for my kids on a Saturday or Sunday morning.
All of the vegetables and fruits supplied by One Table are certified organic and sourced from Australian farmers. So you can be guaranteed that when you buy from them, the vegetables and fruits are free from harmful artificial fertilisers and chemicals as well as promoting ethical farming practices among Australian farmers.
My Favourite Recipes
Next, let me share with you what I am going to cook with the veggies. There are many dishes that you can cook with cabbage but this time I would make a cabbage fruit salad with the apples and oranges I have. For jap pumpkin, I usually go with the traditional pumpkin soup as it’s winter now. Why don’t you try my recipes below, and let us know if you like them or not:

Join the Journey
Ben and Judith from One Table started the organic food store after been through their own journey from sickness to health by eating organically and using clean living products. Their mission is to share their story and experience with others so we all have a healthy family. Naturely Shop has the same mission. As I shared with you in another post, I started using natural skin care, green cleaning products and eating more organic food when my daughter developed severe eczema. After changing our lifestyle habits and making the switch to organic and natural products, she completely recovered from eczema and now has a beautiful skin. Our family’s overall health and wellbeing have also been improved a lot.
I hope you will join us on this journey as well.
