Fruit & Veggie Wash
• FRUIT & VEGGIE WASH •
This is a great habit to get into... to wash all of your produce as you bring it home which removes all of the dirt and bugs from being ‘handled’ plus it’s an easy way to start the prepping process of your meals 👌🏻
When I get all of my produce home, I immediately prep and wash it all straight away. I de stem the kale leaves, chop up the celery and the watermelon.. you catch my drift 😉
I know all of the things can feel very time consuming at the time 🙈 BUT it will save you so much effort later on especially if you are meal prepping! 🙌🏻
Plus it is also super handy if you have toddlers who like to grab fruit from the fruit bowl [it is already washed 😉]
I fill my kitchen sink with water, add 2 tbs of apple cider vinegar with 4 drops of Lemon essential oil and soak batches of our produce and then lay it all out to dry on tea towels ... I do think letting it all dry out properly is key for the produce to last longer.
And you should see what is left in the sink after you are done 🤢 - this might become a labour of love!
