Since I work fulltime and the weekdays are uber busy I make sure to get to the grocery and farmer's market on Sunday to be sure the family will have all the fruits and veggies we'll need for the week (including the fruit I'll need to take with me to work). Just love my apple a day!
Lemons are great in morning tea and bananas really fill me up after workout

I have found that if I keep fresh fruits and veggies attractively displayed in a footed fruit bowl on my center island it does three things at once: A) It looks beautiful, especially with a nice combination of colors & textures 2) Many freggies like tomatoes, oranges, peppers, peaches & plums actually taste better at room temperature vs. refrigerated 3) I ACTUALLY EAT THEM vs. they lay in the bottom of the crisper drawer & get moldy! LOL Frequent, small-quantity purchases ensure freshness.
Sometimes we keep fruits and veggies past their prime. Instead of tossing them, remove any rotted pieces, bag the rest, and freeze them. When you want to add veggies or fruits to cooked dishes, e.g., soup, pasta sauce, add these instead of purchased frozen foods. I keep fruits for use in jello.
