I am having a hard time figuring out how much produce to buy. Usually by the time I get to the middle/end of the week I find a lot of veggies especially the greens have problems with being fresh.

I need advice on how much produce to get in a week and how to store it where it lasts longer. Do you go to the store more than once a week for produce?

I think it really depends on how often you will be able to go to the grocery store. I only buy enough fruits and vegestables for about 3 days. Ofcourse this means I am making more trips to the store, But i dont mind because it gets me out of the house (and i usually walk there or take my bicycle). It also depends how much you consume.. For instance a large part of my diet is based on juicing, so sometimes I run out of fruit and veggies and end up going to the store every 2 days.

As far as freshness.. Ideally you want to eat it at its peak and not have it sit in the fridge for too long.
Hope this helps :)
