    What types of foods are on your "eat this first" space in the refrigerator?

    We're trying to be better about tracking and eating the fruits and veggies that we buy. Sometimes we just forget to include something in a recipe and then it's more likely it will be forgotten and spoil. We also sometimes aren't the best at eating up the last of the grains - like those last few tortillas or the final slices of break.

    I always have more to learn about produce. We've switched to keeping our herbs in a glass of water, and are paying more attention to when things like avocados should be left out vs. stored in the fridge.
