Beginning last week, we started ordering produce from another source.  I came across Gloria’s Fruits and Vegetables a few weeks back at the Mar Vista Farmers market and loved their selection and the fact that they are organic, use sustainable farming practices and are local!  I was thrilled when they said they would deliver to us, thereby eliminating the need for a middle-man vendor.  Gloria’s is so fresh, nothing is kept in storage, therefore, orders need to be in by Sunday evening so I can call it in on Monday.  They pick the goods on Tuesday and deliver early Wednesday morning on their way to the Santa Monica FM. Personally, I couldn’t be happier with the quality so far.  I can usually go through a full order of produce, but then again I cook 95% of my meals.  Here are a couple of tricks I use to maximize usage and minimize spoilage and waste.

Prioritize:  Some things like lettuces, super ripe berries and herbs are more perishable than others.  I usually try to use these first.  Storing herbs like parsley, mint, basil, etc in a glass of water in the fridge will keep them fresh longer.  Lettuce can be stored in perforated plastic bags and sometimes I keep them wrapped up in a moist towel and it does the trick.  Remember to wash thoroughly!  This stuff was in the ground 24 hours ago!

Cook veggies down: Five bunches of kale literally takes over my fridge and makes it hard to see what I even have in there!  One of the first things I do is roast it all in the oven and make kale chips.  (Oven on 450 or so for 15 minutes or until kind of charred, olive oil, salt….deeee-lish!)  And while I have the oven on, I might roast whatever root veggies I have (beets, carrots), the broccoli and cauliflower too.  I now have 3 to 5 days of quick side dishes! (Side note:  The sooner you can do this, the better.  I do this on Wednesday as soon as I bring it home.  Takes maybe an hour.)

Now I have a manageable fridge!  All it took was a little time and effort, but now I know exactly what I have and more importantly, it makes meal planning so much easier.   Things like zucchini, onions, cabbage and some of the heartier greens can wait a little longer and be used to “doctor” up meals and sides.

****Please remember to bring your bags!!  I’m trying to get off the paper completely!  Happy eating!
