As a raw foodist–just-do-my-best-and -not-obsessed-clean-real food-healthy-eater at any given time …
I have …
My main food during the day is raw,healthy green creations link here http://wp.me/p2iumO-4Z and vegetable health bomb juice link here http://wp.me/p2iumO-3G, so that takes a lot of produce to produce.Thus the greenery galore in my fridges.I have 1 big-see above and 2 small fridges see below.For dinner I might eat some raw fish-ceviche, or cooked quinoa,amarant,or millet with broccoli and mushrooms.I don’t like meat,but few times a year I might have some barbecue chicken or fish.But the main of my diet year round is greenery,fruits,vegetable,nuts and seeds.And dark chocolate.
This is my secondary fridges and fruit ”dungeon”.Basically a dark,kinda dry little storage place in my house.
I restock my fridges once a week for the perishables greenery, and the rest -apples,bananas,peaches,kiwis) I buy in bulk, so it last a month or so (for 2 people)
My second top fridge in my food dungeon.
Little tomatoes on the vine,cucumbers,oranges.
I can’t leave without my 3 freezers,since they save me a lot of time and money and store my bulk deals.Usially cut up mangoes,persimmons,strawberries,bananas,even pears.
And yeah.Even with all these fridges,I still end up storing some bulk deals in my plastic containers in my fruit dungeon.
A resent A-ha! moment-My favorite greenery purslane usually last no more than 3 days in my plastic containers in the fridge,but this crate has the magic , so I have been keeping this produce for the last 7 days, and it’s still green and not soggy.It must be the right amount of holes on the crate.Or something.Bulk buy greenery tip-use a create with holes, not a closed up container to store your big quantities of green.
Another tip.Best way to soften hard kiwis is at room temperature, in a big bowls.
To sum it up:
Have a lot of fresh,green produce.
Keep it in the right temperature and place.
Invest in few fridges.
And don’t be afraid to create a lot of garbage.
Because real food creates bulk when disposed off.It’s a natural thing.
It always amazes me that our garbage bin is overflowing with fruit and vegetables peelings and pulp from the daily juices at the end of the bi-weekly collection period, as opposite of those of the neighbours,whose bin is always not even half full.Well,few pizza boxes,microwave diner boxes and countless candy and bread and processes food wrappers doesn’t take much space…
So Hooray for the full garbage bins!
