It’s common practice to go grocery shopping nearly every day in Japan. But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s a good idea to minimize the number of food shopping trips you take. How? By helping your produce keep longer in the fridge and freezer.

Whole vegetables keep longer, so buy a whole cabbage, head of lettuce or kabocha squash, rather than a cut piece, if your refrigerator can accommodate them. Instead of loose bagged salad leaves, get spinach with the roots on. Root vegetables like daikon radish, turnips and carrots will keep a lot longer than leafy vegetables, especially if you store them vertically.
