It’s no longer news that consuming fruits & veggies (aka: freggies) of all kinds, colors and sorts causes good things to happen inside our physical bodies. The part that has not connected for many of us is that it can also taste good and be just as satisfying if not more so than eating cooked, processed, fattening, unhealthy foods.
Thirteen years ago, Freggies founder, Jerrod Sessler, was faced with a real choice. One of those choices that someone never forgets. He was told that he had a 5% chance of living through the cancer that was growing in his body.
The docs said that he should take the chemical treatments because statistically they would improve his survival odds from 5% to about 15%. Or, he could listen to the skinny people telling him to change his diet. So, he was at a serious inflection point. Would he listen to the doctors that have clearly been trained in the importance of nutrition and healing? Or, would he listen to those that say he could be healed by simply eliminating the toxins that existed in his body and by giving his body the tools it needed to do the self-healing work it is designed to do?
Sessler admits he is a risk taker and he is extremely competitive. ”Fifteen percent just didn’t seem like something I was willing to risk losing with.” he remarked. In the end, he decided to strengthen is body to fight the fight instead of using convention medical means. He says he had peace about it and he knew it was the right thing to do.
Once the choice was made, he turned his energies into learning how to live in this strange, new, seemingly “tree hugging” sort of way. He met people he was sure were crazy. He knows people personally that are known more for their “food name” than their real name. He met people that made him nervous and people that simple make others want to jump for joy right into their loving kindness.
In talking about getting started, Jerrod remembers, “I needed a high volume, low cost source for good quality, fresh, organic produce. I wanted the best. The best tasted better. The best contained the highest amount of nutrients. I wanted it! I wanted to enjoy my food.” The options he found were surrounded by dollar signs. It was impossible to get good quality produce without really taking a beating at the cash register.
As a result of all this, Freggies was started in his garage. He would send a spreadsheet to friends and family with a list of various types of produce. He would collaborate weekly on a big order to local farms. This eventually led to the formation of Freggies’ website and on-line ordering and payment systems. As the Freggies fans and crowds grew around the Freggies mission, Sessler began delivering the Freggies Organic Produce to better meet the demand. Freggies has now been delivering for a number of years.
So what does all this have to do with you and Burien? Well, Jerrod grew up in Burien and dearly loves this community and the people of Burien. He has had the opportunity to travel the world and he chooses to live and raise his family in Burien. He wants everyone in Burien that thinks eating organic is important to enjoy the benefits of Freggies. So, Freggies is offering Burienites the opportunity to purchase a weekly or bi-week box of Freggies organic fruit and veggies for less than it costs Freggies to provide it! Yes, they are going to lose money on each box that goes to Burien.
Those who participate will get a $40 (value) box of fresh, raw, organic fruits and vegetables for only $24. That is nearly half price and this isn’t some short term deal. The growing Freggies team wants Burien to be healthy and they are putting their best product where our heart is. Enjoy!
