Almost all of us should be including more vegetables into our diet, but the majority of us just don’t want to go through the bother of preparing them – especially in the middle of cooking. It’s so much easier to skip the salad and put it off for another day, and then another day and another until we have a drawer full of furry, rotten mush.
My trick is to prepare all the vegetables after I come home from shopping – before I put them into the vegetable drawer where they often serve our a live sentence and don’t become a part of our well-balanced diet. Once they were prepared, they go into storage containers or plastic baggies (i.e. Ziploc) and they were labeled with a small piece of masking tape to ensure they are identified easily (for all members of the household) and used quickly.
