1. Plan a Weekly Crisper Purge
To avoid wasting fresh produce, plan to inventory your crisper drawers each week. Flash freeze fruits or berries that are nearing the end of their freshness and use them to make delicious fruit smoothies. A weekly pot of hearty soup or stew is a great way to use up leftover vegetables that would otherwise languish at the bottom of your refrigerator. Try Alton Brown’s recipe for Garden Vegetable Soup and toss in whatever fresh vegetables you have on hand. Another tasty way to use up your veggies is in a savory frittata or quiche.
