You’re now stocked on veggies and fruits but… how long will they last?
In addition to storing your fruits and veggies properly, it’s good to know approximately how long the fresh stuff will last. Plan your trip to the grocery or farmer’s market accordingly so that your foods are at the peak of freshness when you plan to prepare them, and you’re not throwing away food that’s gone bad before you get a chance to use it!
- Green beans
- Brussels sprouts
- Hard Squash
Oh this so SO useful. I’m ashamed to say that we ALWAYS have one thing go bad on us because we never manage to plan our shopping properly and it’s such a waste.
Relaxation at its finest!
Laying in the sun after a nice workout, munching on some berries and reading The Hunger Games.
Oh and speaking of The Hunger Games…thank you to everyone who told me to read it! I’m totally loving it :)
Haha also on a side note, I promise that I eat more than just fruit! I’ll start posting my veggie meals too haha :) …

I gotta say that these pictures wouldn’t look nearly as refreshing if she was holding a bucket of fried chicken instead of nice cup of berries :) Just saying:D
