Grill them: Barbecue a large batch of veggies (like zucchini, eggplant, peppers, and red onions) and keep in the refrigerator to add to salads, sandwiches, wraps, or pizzas throughout the week.
Freeze them: Store some summer sunshine for winter by freezing your excess fruit - berries and stone fruit freeze especially well. Wash, slice (if necessary), and freeze in a single layer on a tray. Once frozen, transfer to a resealable plastic bag.
Blend them: Chop and remove seeds from whatever soft fruit you have on hand (like peaches, nectarines and watermelons) and whiz in a blender with fruit juice or add a banana and yogurt to create a satisfying smoothie.
Chop them: Whether you have extra veggies or fruit, chop them up for a salad. Explore different combination. Veggies pair well with simple olive oil and vinegar, while fruit tastes great with a drizzle of honey.
