This is what my order consisted of. These are the BIG boxes - the long ones. At least twice the length of a standard tomato box. One box is a friend's (she ordered with me and we shared the courier cost) but the rest are ours.
Oh and not in the picture are these, below. The apples and the yoghurt. I've not tried this yoghurt before, usually buying the Barambah blueberry organic yoghurt - which is a real taste - a different taste to 'usual' yoghurt but a taste I now prefer... so I will be keen to see if this one takes to my tastebuds just as well.

There is a 'pantry staples' order run, as well as the f&v. The f&v includes dairy products and milk, as well as fruit and veg (your choice of organic or not) and in my lot this time I got 4kg of strawberries. yum. The pantry staples order I've yet to do, but they do also offer things like eco dishwasher powder, biodegradable cling wrap etc.
So between Real Foods, Springer Foods (for my 24kg organic flour, 20kg golden syrup etc) and a Woolworths order, and perhaps the occasional trip to Mr Fresh for the Barambah yoghurt, and the Sunnydale and Bannister Downs milk in glass, I think I could be quite set for efficient, aware and more enjoyable grocery purchases.
Thanks again to BM for putting me on to the Real Food Co-op. Up next, the results of the 'jam making session'..!
