One of the most common excuses for not eating healthy is the cost. And while stocking up on fresh produce and whole foods is an investment, it’s often the amount that’s wasted that causes the problem.
Luckily, there are some tried-and-true-tips to keep healthy ingredients fresher, longer.
Here’s some a tip from everydayhealth.com:
Problem: Limp Lettuce
Solution: Line the bottom of your refrigerator’s crisper drawer with paper towels.
We all grab big heads of leafy lettuce with the intention of serving up light, healthy salads for summer dinners, but a few days go by and suddenly those crisp leaves become limp and soggy. To lengthen the shelf life of leafy greens as well as other produce in your fridge, line the crisper drawer with paper towels. Moisture in the fridge is what causes most fruits and veggies to lose their crisp texture and start to soften and go bad. By lining your fridge’s veggie drawer, you’ll absorb excess moisture and keep fresh produce crunchy for an extended period of time.
