Test Kitchen Tip
Shopping for Two
Most grocery stores offer a large and varied selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, but you often end up buying more than you need. If your town has a farmers’ market, take advantage of it by selecting only the quantity of produce that you can eat within a week.
Supermarket salad bars are another great resource for couples. Scavenge salad bars to find shredded carrots, broccoli and cauliflower florets, chopped onions and peppers, and fresh fruits. Again, you can buy only the amount you need for two without having to worry about waste.
Don’t forget about the freezer aisle. Many frozen vegetables offer the same nutritional benefits as fresh produce—but the frozen foods will last up to six months in your freezer.
