RG: “Here’s my “fruit & veg fridge”! I have two fridges, one for fresh fruit & veg, one for everything else! My fruit and veg fridge is packed full of fresh veggies for salads, baking and making veggie slices & stir-frys. I load up on fresh fruit for smoothies (my fave is  mango, banana, passionfruit) & making fruit salads! I love fruit with everything – on my muesli, in my salads, with my yoghurt, as my ice cream, dipped in chocolate! Mmmmmm 🙂
