We go through a ton of produce in this house! I think it's awesome but I just never realized how much until I was shopping this weekend and realized that half of my basket was from produce! I bought 16 more mangoes because I want to try to dehydrate some of them. I LOVE dehydrated mangoes. Last week I bought 8 but the kids ate them all before I had a chance to add even one to the dehydrator! We buy at least 8 pineapples a month but it would easily be more if I just went shopping more often. Last week I weighed the bananas I bought for the first time. It was 7lbs. I buy those 3 times a month! That is 21 pounds of bananas per month! I use about 50 blueberries/day, so I usually buy at least 2 containers at a time. 3 bags of carrots last time. 2 bags of onions every month. I haven't been using as much spinach lately because I've replaced salads with shakes. I bag of roma tomatoes and we have been eating cucumbers and squash straight from the garden. And we always buy fresh strawberries in season and a huge bag of frozen strawberries twice a month along with 5 bags each of frozen broccoli and frozen green beans!
And celery! I almost forgot the celery. I only had to buy one more bunch of celery this last trip because I still had 3 in the fridge from last week. Celery and peanut butter or nutella is one of our favorite snacks! Oh, and 2 bags of apples and usually one bag of oranges if they don't have Cuties for the kids.
