I want to tell you a helpful hint for making containers of spinach, greens or veggies last longer.  I get the large tubs of greens but they spoil quickly because they get wet on the inside. When I bring the greens home from the grocery, I stuff three towels along the bottom, middle and the top.  It keeps the lettuces dryer, longer, and smelling fresh.  It saves you money to buy bigger containers of greens, and with this process, it allows them to stay fresh.

I love fresh, seasonal vegetables but during the winter months I utilize frozen vegetables a lot.  I buy big bags from a warehouse outlet grocery and portion out what I need to use.  The quality is good, and my neighborhood warehouse sells organic frozen veggies.  This same theory works for a variety of fish products.  The quality of the frozen for fish such as Mahi mahi is often better frozen then fresh.  I can’t say this is true for salmon (that’s a personal preference).
