Yep. For most fresh fruits and veggies, I try to only buy what I can eat within a few days. Sometimes things will last longer, but you never really know how long they've been sitting at the grocery store.
Tomatoes are one of the few fruits that stays fresher longer at room temperature. I know someone who likes eating frozen fruit like berries/grapes things bite sized. Not the processed crap you buy frozen just fresh fruit in the freezer. I don't know what this does for nutrition though.Originally Posted by Clarita Osita
I think some people don't like to keep produce in the fridge (especially tomatoes), but I usually do it. Plus then, in the summer, my food is nice and cold. If something is lukewarm, I'm probably not going to eat it because I basically eat for the sole purpose of cooling down. Can you guess it's hot here?
Thanks... I'm going to have to try these!Originally Posted by Clare
I use the green veggie produce bags that you put your vegetables in and keep them in the fridge. I think they are called "Debbie Meyer Produce Bags" They seem to keep things fresh for at least 2 or 3 times longer. Just remove as much air as you can from the bag when you put the vegetables in, and make sure everything is try and there is no moisture.
