We all know we're suppose to wash fruit and veggies before we eat them. If you wash them before you even put them away then it cuts out a step later on when you're hungry. Wash out your crisper drawers, get all your fruits and veggies clean, and put a sign on the drawers that says "Clean and Ready to Eat!"

This is my motto when trying to eat more fruits and vegetables. After shopping I bring home my produce for "processing". Meaning I "wash" and "cut" up as many fruits and vegetables as possible. This way I'm more prone to eat these when I'm hungry because I can just "grab" vegs and "add" to my soups and salads, and "add" fruit to my smoothies and cereals/oatmeal.
This equals less waste as I eat the produce I buy. This saves me money. This ensures that I get my daily recommended servings of fruit and veg.30
Farmer's market or grocery store. It is less expensive if you go to the farmer's market and buy bulk but when you can't get to a farmer's market, wash your fruit and vegetable with a vegetable wash to get the same effect as foods without pesticides.
