- Wow, this topic doesn't even touch on buying frozen veg or freezing excess (a guide is needed here as not everything can be frozen/thawed with desirable results), it doesn't talk about dried or canned, nor does it talk about buying from a grocer - where you can buy as little or as much as you choose for very reasonable prices. It doesn't talk about the best ways to store fruit and veg so they last longest, how to identify edible food that might not be waste, using leftover peelings for compost or animal feed, cooking larger veg in batches for storing...
Worse than amateur, it's poor! Absolutely NO information to be gleaned from this article. The goal isn't even well considered, what reason is she wanting extra fruit and veg: Energy? Fibre? Vitamins? Moreover Cilantro (Coriander) is a herb, not fruit or veg.

- Actually the point of the article was to reduce waste within the journey to eat more fruit/veg. The author made at least 3 valid points on how to do this. Not exceptionally creative points but common sense is still valuable knowledge. I agree with the cilantro. Another example should have been used.Feb 20, 2013
- Enabran+2Wow, chill out. It's a good primer for people looking to cut down on food waste at the source, not necessarily through preservation tactics. The tips in the article are useful especially for people who are just moving out on their own or want to cut to the chase and learn to use what they get without throwing any of it out. Either way, still a good piece.Feb 20, 2013
- Get a juicer, I promise you will never have fruits and veggies spoil again. You will however find yourself making more trips to the grocer to replenish your stock, oh and to the restroom to deplete your stock.
Plus, you'll lose excess weight, digest more fiber, and more vitamins.Feb 21, 2013
