A big part of losing weight is eating right, and what better way to eat right than to fill up on lots of fresh fruits and veggies! But..if you are anything like me, sometimes it's hard to keep a variety of fruits and veggies without them going bad before you go through them all.
Here's some tips to keep your produce fresh longer!
Bananas- store on counter... to slow ripening, pull bunch apart.
Celery- store in a sealed bag towards front of fridge to prevent chance of freezing. (I've made the mistake of storing them in the back of the crisper a couple times and they freeze..not good since they turn rubbery when thawed!)
Grapes- store in ziploc bag to prevent air from drying out the skins. Grapes bruise easily, so be careful not to "stuff" them in the crisper drawer.
Lettuce- I've always had good luck with rinsing my lettuce well, wrapping it with a couple paper towels and storing it in a ziploc bag.
Mushrooms- store in paper bag in fridge, but avoid storing in crisper.
Tomatoes- I've heard some say they are best to store stem side turn in the crisper drawer, but mine have always lasted longer and tasted fresher when left on the counter, out of direct sunlight.
