Healthy eating tip: Keep your produce fresh
Fresh fruits and veggies are an essential part of a healthy diet. But once they're fresh, they're hard to keep that way -- know the rules of the produce aisle to keep your healthy snacks as tasty as possible:
- Store on the counter: Basil, cucumbers, peppers, watermelon, tomatoes.
- Store in the Fridge: Beets, blueberries, corn, radishes, raspberries, strawberries, yellow squash, zucchini.
- Store in a cool, dry place: Butternut squash, yams, potatoes, onions.
- Ripen on the counter, then refrigerate: Avocados, peaches, pears, kiwis.
Other things you can do: Keep produce in a perforate bag, and be sure to keep fruits and veggies in a separate drawer in the fridge. If you start to notice something close to spoiling, use it or freeze it.
