Getting the most from your Lee Greens

Many of our customers tell us about the benefits of being part of Lee Greens; from eating more fresh, organic seasonal produce and less processed food than they did before, feeling healthier and wasting less by cooking from scratch more to becoming more adventurous in the kitchen and letting vegetables take centre stage in preparing meals. But we also appreciate that with great veg comes what might sometimes feel like the great responsibility of preparing meals to use your veg through the week before Thursday and Lee Greens bag day comes around again.

The gut microbiome and health

We often talk about the power of community at Lee Greens. But there’s another kind of community that lives inside each and every one of us, one containing trillions of residents. And whose diversity it has emerged has a major influence on pretty much all aspects of our health - our gut microbiome.
