  1. Display food in clear or colorful bowls and jars
  • After you dumped the condiments you tried that you don’t even like and trashed any old or expired food, it’s time to refill in a new way
  • Put whole seasonal fruit in wide, shallow bowls and put on the shelves, not in drawers
  • Move snackable produce to clear glass containers and put on shelves, too.
  • Hard-boiled eggs in a colorful bowl
  • Not all whole produce needs to be refrigerated, so keep that on a nice fruit platter or stacked platter, like for: onions, garlic, unripe avocados and pears, kiwi, onions, potatoes, tomatoes
  1. Prep that produce
  • Cut up snacking vegetables soon after you buy it so it doesn’t die in the veggie graveyard; put in Mason jars
  • Healthy deli foods and takeout should go in clear containers so you see it.
  • Edamame in jars
