How to prevent your veggies from spoiling?

How to prevent my veggies from spoiling? This is a very common question I get...

-

The best method for good health and to prevent your produce to get spoiled is by eating them as soon as possible and as FRESH as possible!

-

EAT vegetables every day in every meal consistently🧄🧅🥦

-

Learn to plan your meals around plant based ingredients, learn different ways to prepare them and like them, if you like them, you will enjoy them and eat them more!

-

In my experience they get spoiled for two main reasons:

(1) We buy too many or too much without a plan to use them

(2) We usually forget what we bought, or what we already had, and we buy more!

Has that happened to you? 🥴

TIPS: 💪

🥬Buy fresh produce weekly in small amounts - Do not buy produce in bulk - unless you are a huge family of vegetarians or if you juice them

👉Write an inventory list and place in front of your fridge door (I use a small dry erase board with a magnet) and write all the fresh produce you have purchased that week and any left-overs from previous week and place an asterisks to use those first.

👉In the same inventory add any produce you have already frozen and place an (F) next to them

👉Check them out from the list as you use them

👉Check your inventory daily and one day before the week end - if you know that you will not cook them soon enough...

TRANSFORM THEM OR FREEZE THEM!

- 🥒Pickled it - most veggies are delicious pickled and they will last a few weeks -

🥦Chop it and freeze it - most veggies are good frozen to use later for soups, stews, dressings, sauces or to be roasted, stocks, stir fries, casseroles, eggs or pizzas

-

🥬Use Herbs in mixtures to cook with and freeze (and aromatics) for example “recaito”, “sofritos”, compound butters, pesto

-

🥕Juice it - veggies only or fruit and veggie combinations and freeze to make sorbets

-

BEST FREEZING METHOD:

Clean, peel and chop the veggies or fruits; separate them in a tray so they do not touch, freeze them for 30 minutes until hard then store in a bag and add a label with date and include in your inventory
