Storing Your Vegetables
For years I would put all my vegetables in those grocery baggies, the ones you use to select your veggies at the market or veggie/fruit stand, and I would come home and stick them in the drawers in those plastic bags. Then they would get all moldy and gross before the week was up. BUT NOW, that is not a problem anymore!!!! A friend who is an organic chef, taught me the BEST Trick in 2012, and I am sharing it with YOU today!
Easy, fresh way to store your vegetables, this is what I do:
When I go buy my veggies now, I just put my vegetables in my basket without putting them in individual baggies, I grab that small carry basket and stick that in my cart and load up all the veggies in that.. NO NEED for the baggies ever again!
When I get home, I open my vegetable drawers in my refrigerator, and make sure there is a DRY cloth lining BOTTOM of the drawer. This can be any clean kitchen towel or hand towel.
Next, load the drawers with your vegetables.
Now put this damp towel on top of all the veggies, covering them. And Voila! You have stored your veggies where they can breath and stay moist. Just like they do it at the markets by putting them in refrigerated areas, letting them breath and misting them with water throughout the day keeping them moist.
I use most of these veggies each week for my morning juicing I am addicted to.. This by far is ONE of the BEST Kitchen storing tricks I have EVER learned! TRY IT! YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!!
I am looking forward to sharing more with you as time goes on! Health is a passion and a way of life that is continually giving my family and myself much peace and joy. I discover new things all the time and will be sharing with you those new findings as they unfold.. My passion for health is all about feeling good, because most of my life I wasn’t feeling my best, learning about health and applying the techniques is constantly changing my life for the better, many benefits come with feeling better, you look better to that is a nice side benefit.. But for me it is all about FEELING GOOD! FEELING GOOD is a gift!
