Hi everyone! A few days ago I read a thread about veggies and fruit going bad. I purchased 'bananna bags' at Whole Foods - 24 for $6.99.They are amazing and keep your fruit and veggies fresh for weeks. Today on HSN they are the deal of the day. The price is a little high (I have no connection with HSN) but if you aren't near a Whole Foods you can have these delivered. Here is the link.
Here is an link to a different brand but the same idea. It explains how they work and shows pictures.

Let me know how they work for you. I purchased them once, didn't seem there was any difference... at least not that I noticed so, didn't purchase again.

I have the evert fresh green bags (second link), but never used them. I wanted them primarily for spinach and leafy green lettuce type veggies. The instructions said that the produce has to be completely dry. How in the world do you get spinach and lettuce completely dry? Wipe each and every leaf with a paper towel?

i've been using the second link too. I've only tried fruit and so far so good.

Why would anyone want to hold onto veggies for 30 days.
My former chilcare providor is from Guyana, she's been in the states over 40 years now. But she says her relatives always wonder how one can own so much land (speaking of suburban Americans) yet not ever grow their on food. Not even fruit trees. Where ever she's lived she's always had at least a vegetable garden and a deep freezer for storage, she's a 30+yr vegan btw and now at near 73 years of age she continues to enjoy a 5 mile walk every morning at 5:30 AM.
To this day she continues to garden, make her own bread from scratch and enjoy life. THE food she grows taste very different than conventional and even better than organic from the farmers market.
well my point is that in our efforts to eat the best food available we should also want the freshes. granted our palates desire some imports that are best economically if purchased in bulk but their are other foods that would be great i picked up fresh ever few days.

The longer "fresh" food sits around the more it loses in nurtrieants. I know I spelled that wrong! I find the best way is to shop more often and buy small amounts of what is the freshest. If you're lucky enough to live near a farm market in town shop there every week or join a csa if there is one in your area. You are certain to get the very best freshest loveyest most wonderful veggies and fruits. Also as someone else here pointed out plant some of your favs in the back yard or front yard or patio pot. Even if you have no space to garden you can plant a pot of fresh herbs to add that extra something to your dishes. But please don't eat 30 day old anything no matter how good it looks it is not fresh.
