You are going to be eating more salads now, right? Or, you want to eat more salads, but the lettuce gets kind of slimy before you can finish it. I know the feeling. Well, I KNEW the feeling.
A very simple thing to do to keep any green leafy vegetable (lettuce varieties, spinach, etc.) fresh longer is to put a paper towel in with the item. You see, water is the big culprit here, so if you reduce the water, these foods will last longer – far longer. When you get home from the store, and before you put the vegetables into the refrigerator, just fold a paper towel into quarters and put it in the bag. It’s that simple. don’t forget to check the paper towel in a couple of days – you might need to change it in the event it gets wet. It might be damp, but that seems to be okay.
So, don’t be afraid to buy that good food – it won’t spoil in three days and you will have time to eat it. You are changing your diet, right? This will help – it did for me. And, you oon’t need to buy any extra containers or bags – just use the bags your put the vegetables in when you bought them.
As always, thank you for reading. You can control and manage diabetes!
