KROGER HEALTHY HAUL – JANUARY 2022 This was a big restock shop as I haven’t been out in about 3ยฝ weeks. 80% or so of my daily meals are from fruit/veg/lean protein so this will last about 3-4 weeks. #eattherainbow

๐ŸŽ PRODUCE STORAGE NOTES:
โ–ช๏ธCELERY TIP: Wrap tightly in foil to store
Keep away from the back of the fridge – stays crisp for weeks
โ–ช๏ธAVOCADO TIP: Store in the veggie drawer to slow ripening – set out to ripen gradually or put in a paper bag to fast ripen
โ–ช๏ธGREENS TIP: Trim the stalks and store in a zip lock bag or airtight container with paper towels to absorb any condensation
โ–ช๏ธLEMON/LIME JUICE TIP: Freeze fresh squeezed juice in ice cube trays (with some zest if you want) to store. The flavor deteriorates after 24hrs if just refrigerated
โ–ช๏ธARTICHOKE TIP: Cook in the Instant Pot for 20min… Perfect!

โ–ช๏ธGREEN BEANS TIP: Store in a breathable bag on paper towels to absorb excess moisture
โ–ช๏ธBERRY TIP: Store in glass jars with a paper towel in the bottom
โ–ช๏ธBANANA TIP: Buy greener bananas and wrap the stem ends in plastic wrap
โ–ช๏ธFRESH HERBS TIP: Trim the ends like you would cut flowers and store in the fridge in a glass with some water
