Show us your kitchen and fruit / veggie storage solutions!!! (pictures below)

Before going paleo, I had a small fruit bowl (usually empty) and 2 really nice candle sticks on my dining room table.

After paleo: I'm buying soo much healthy fruit and veggies I'm having a real challenge storing / organizing it in my small city apt.

I just got back from the supermarket and decided enough is enough.

Before taking the pictures below, I just removed a bunch of stuff from the top of the fridge. So, I'm thinking of putting the bananas and squash there. My experience with a fruit bowl on top of the fridge is that I can't see what's in it, and I would forget what's there.

In any event, show us your kitchen and how you deal with all the fruits & veggies!

(BTW, this is a 1.5 person paleo house-hold).

Mike

PS: let me say how much I love my vitamix, pressure cooker & slow cooker. I use each many times / week!!

As to "decently sized", I thought so when I bought it 2 years ago (pre-paleo). Now I wish I got a bigger one.

Not pregnant. My partner is not as committed to Paleo as I am. I pack my lunch for work, and eat breakfast & dinner at most days.

Funny: I'm now loving the stuff inside the fridge! BTW, after taking that photo, I was kinda shocked at how terrible that looks. Me: I'm an crazy neat freak. My partner is the creative artist type. I have relinquished control of the fridge but have seized control of the entertainment center & coffee table!!

That's a decently sized refrigerator. I think you should have enough room for all fruits/veggies. Have you cleaned it out yet by throwing out ALL the non-paleo stuff?

1.5 person? Are you pregnant? Have you considered going grocery shopping more frequently (getting fewer items per trip)?

I store my greens in a vase of water. They look pretty, and they are more nutritious that way compared to in the dark fridge. They also seem to keep better.

Now that I have a garden, I'm also storing my veggies in the ground. :)
