Get $10 off your first order with coupon code AFFL3. I've never tried Peapod myself, we don't have a location near us. But I've heard really great things about them! This is a grocery shopping and delivery service. Apparently they are super picky and great at getting you quality produce, and they also have something called a NutriFilter, which will allow you to tell them what you don't want in your diet, such as trans-fats, high fructose corn syrup etc. Here's some info on that:
"If dietary diligence alone can affect peanut allergies, celiac disease and heart disease, Peapod's new proprietary software program has the antidote to anaphylaxis, intestinal damage and cardiac arrest.
NutriFilter scans the nutritional information for the online grocer's 10,000 SKUs and shows shoppers with celiac disease, for instance, only gluten-free goods. Specific dietary needs coded into the product include gluten-free, organic, peanut-free, low-fat and Kosher. Other common diets will be added in the future.
"This is an example of the perfect confluence of shopper needs and technology," says Don Stuart, managing director at Cannondale Associates, Wilton, Conn. "This will clearly empower consumers to utilize online to a greater degree for grocery and other products."
""You can go in and click on low sodium and low fat." Families also can create and store multiple NutriFilter profiles, specific to the desired food attributes of each member."
