Preparing a nd Cooking Tips for Fruits and Vegetables

Cooking without the needed ingredients can be frustrating, so make sure all items are complete by writing the down the things to buy before going to the supermarket.

Choose wisely when buying them in the supermarket. It should be fresh produce so you can still consume for three to four days. Just buy what you need to avoid overbuying and spoilage. You may also buy canned, dried, and frozen items for later use in the week.

Do not choose injured vegetables, they easily decay.

Buy fruits and vegetables that are in season where supply are plenty, they are in best shape, and prices are low. Build your menu from them to take advantage of the season.

Place them in crisper of refrigerator to stay fresh except for tomatoes, potatoes, and bananas.

While preparing, kids can be taught of the health values of fruits and vegetables so that they will be able to appreciate it more. Schedule every week new recipes for them, here are some ideas for your next cooking treat:

Make a homemade healthy vegetable pizza. Select vegetables appealing to the taste of the family especially of the kids.

Try “candied” vegetables that are more attractive to kids, herb butter for vegetable toppings. Fruits are best juices with different combination mixes.

Schedule a special trip to nearby farm so kids will be able to experience how fruits and vegetables are cultivated. Buy fresh produce which is a lot more cheaper if bought from them.
