A tip on Tuesday!

My friend Tammy (http://tam-sense.blogspot.com/) says I have lots of awesome ideas and tips on how to make life easier/more efficient. I thought I would share some of them here. I did not come up with any of these, they have been picked up along the way from my family, friends, magazines, blogs, etc.

Tip on Tuesday:Wash the produce as soon as you get home from the store. It makes cooking, packing lunches, grabbing a quick snack, so much easier when everything is ready to go. Scrub the carrots, wash and tear up the lettuce/kale/spinach, wash the apples, etc. I will even wash half a bunch of grapes, saving the other half for later in the week. It helps them stay fresh longer if they aren't washed. Don't wash berries until ready to use, that helps them stay fresh longer too.

This is a great one. I didn't know that about berries, but I will change it up and wash as I use them (no wonder my blueberries were getting mushy so quickly). Keep the tips coming, lady!
