> I leave my raw veggies in the fridge in an airtight container ...

I noticed that when the greens do not have air circulation, they get too wet and rot. If they get too much air circulation, they dry out. So, I experiment with a middle value of some air, but not too much. For example, I have dried basil in my refrigerator because I kept it exposed to air. I will use that in my Vitamix for a blended basil-tasting meal, using up my mistake and learning my lesson for next time.

> I use dulse flakes ...

I used to eat dulse, before I ate raw food. Now I use sea salt, which used to be on land. But, I noticed that too much is not good because I get fast loose stools, so I have to observe and not keep making the same mistake. The light bulb comes on after repeating the same mistake. The salt keeps the pimples away because it draws the fluid out of the skin. The fruit sugar causes pimples, for me.

> I only use the green curly kale.

I eat the kale in my very small garden. I have two kale plants right now. The leaves happen to be not curly. It keeps producing every week after I take off the big leaves and leave behind the smaller leaves, which is great. I water those two plants every week, and they are easy maintenance.

> ... pears, apples, peaches, etc. ...

I live in Connecticut, and that is the fruit that grows here. I am just starting to get used to it. I let the Bartlett pears soften until they are like the softness of boiled potatoes, and then I put them in the refrigerator to stop the ripening. I cut them on the cutting board like potatoes, and I eat the pieces with a fork, saving some seeds as I eat. I used to eat hard pears, and that did not work. I have not tried this with apples, but that is another experiment to try.

> piece wrapped in green lettuce leaves or with kale

That is a good experiment to try, fruit wrapped in greens.
