Storing food is one of the most important parts of losing weight and improving health. Why? Because in order to avoid processed, calorie-dense foods, cooking is key- especially cooking fresh produce. And in order to integrate veggies into your meals, you have to buy them and store them or else they will go bad before you have a chance to use them.
There is a lot to learn and it takes practice, but learning how to store produce pays off big time. We all want to avoid the smiley cucumbers, the frozen greens, brown avocados and the moldy berries. Check out the links above for some great tips on storing fruit and veggies. You will find great tips like washing berries with vinegar before storing them in the fridge to keep them free of mold, placing cilantro stem-deep in water to keep it from wilting and squirting lime juice on sliced avocado to keep it from turning brown.
Learning how and how long to safely store food is just one of many skills that one can use to adopt a healthful eating pattern. Weight and health management, in addition to fitness and wealth management has a lot more to do with skill-power than will-power.
