Do you buy fresh produce?
In hopes that seeing all that fresh produce in your fridge and *maybe* just *maybe* it will motivate you to make a fresh salad and eat more veggies? I certainly do!
I’ll buy asparagus, onions, spinach, 50/50 mix, avocados, etc. just to watch it sit in my fridge and die a slow death.
But luckily there is a way to save your dying produce!
Trust that these little tips and tricks will keep your produce fresh longer.
If you have wilting celery: juice it! Drinking celery juice in the morning helps reduce inflammation and helps cleanse your body of toxic viruses.
If you have slimy spinach: sauté it! But first try to preserve it longer by washing it, let it air dry it, and store in a glass container. If the spinach is on it’s way out, sauté it in a little extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil and store it in the fridge for up to 5 more days!
If you have lots of “extra leaves”: eat them! Did you know that you can sautée beetroot leaves and eat them? Or you can chop them up and add them to a quiche.
If you have mushy avocados: make pasta! Yes, you heard me. Make some pasta (preferably whole wheat, protein, or chickpea pasta) and use the mushy avocado as a pasta sauce. Depending on the consistency, add a little bit of garlic, salt/pepper, lemon juice, and chopped basil, and mix into warm pasta. Voila, healthy pasta!
