Keep It Fresh

"I'm very intentional about the shopping, but as far as recipes and planning meals, it's very basic. We stick to vegetables and meat, and we just identify a menu of vegetables that we like and we load up on those. I generally shop twice a week because I prefer fresh vegetables and fresh fish -- so I'm usually in the store on Sunday and Wednesday." -- Sandy, friend of First Lady Michelle Obama
