Meet Jaime Lopez of the South on Broadway food blog. She’s a busy Denver mom with a lifestyle blog for lovers of food, design, fashion, and travel. We also think she’s an inspiration for healthy living. We recently asked Jaime to share how Door to Door Organics makes her life a little easier.
How does Door to Door Organics simplify your life?
“I use Door to Door Organics to keep healthy fresh produce in my home at all times. The items in my delivery are the starting point for my weekly meal planning and often dictate what I will cook for the week ahead. I love that Door to Door Organics has expanded their offerings to include sustainable seafood, locally roasted coffee, range-free eggs and local cheeses. I can often times get all of my groceries delivered right to my door step which not only saves me time but I appreciate knowing that the ingredients are seasonal, humanly raised and often times locally grown.”
Which fruits and veggies are always in your box?
“I eat a ton of fruit so I am constantly ordering bananas, apples, grapefruit, and mangoes. I also seem to order a lot of lemons, shiitake mushrooms, and potatoes.”
What’s your favorite splurge or special treat?
“I love Cappello’s gluten-free pastas, so I will add them into my orders quite often and also go crazy in the summer months for any and all tomato varieties!”

Salmon is straight-up one of the healthiest fish you’ll find. It’s very low in mercury, high in protein, and extremely high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are stellar for your heart, memory, and mood. But it’s important to know your salmon source. Most of the salmon Americans eat come from foreign fish farms, which are cleaner and less crowded than they used to be, but not top-notch. When you choose wild salmon, you can be sure it was caught in its native habitat, like the Sockeye and Coho we offer that swim freely in cold, pristine Alaskan waters. When you order salmon at restaurants, most likely the fish was farmed if it doesn’t say wild. But how can you tell […]
When I was a kid, every Easter I dunked eggs in mugs filled with those fizzing tablets that instantly produced vibrant colors. It was the ’70s, or the better-living-through-chemistry decade, when no one questioned how chemicals affected our health. Today, even though the kits sold in stores proclaim to be nontoxic, many still contain synthetic food dyes that studies have linked to allergies and behavioral problems like ADHD in children. Why not skip the kits with neon colors and glitter pens (they contain polyurethane) and go au naturel this spring? Using veggies, fruits, spices, tea, and coffee will produce a vivid array of hues from soft pastels to deep, earthy tones. Of course, creating dyes with organic produce will help […]

Here are five easy ways to get more energy—and stay energized—even in winter. Eat to sleep. Quality shuteye gives you all-day energy, but sugary snacks and refined carbohydrates spike and tank blood sugar, a roller-coaster ride that sabotages sleep. It’s best to lay off junk food, but especially in the evening. Instead, craft dinners with healthy ingredients that promote slumber. Fish, turkey, spinach, and walnuts all contain […]
