Produce That Lasts The Longest

Is there anything more frustrating than buying fresh produce and having it go bad within a few days?  Inspecting your fruits and veggies at the store before check-out helps mostly alleviate spoiled produce, among washing your fruits and vegetables and storing them properly once you get them home.


However, some produce lasts far longer than others, and these items are worth keeping in your weekly grocery rotation — you’ll rarely have these spoil.

1)     Onions

2)     Apples

10)   Celery


What’s on your weekly grocery rotation?


Every week I buy lots of veggies that I stir fry in clarified butter (ghee) and then season with garlic powder and garlic salt.  English peas, bean sprouts, zucchini, cremini mushrooms, very thinly sliced red onion, broccoli rice, cauliflower rice, baby bok choy,  sliced cabbage or sliced Brussel sprouts and…  This is great as a side dish with any of our other food or sometimes at lunch I take organic chicken cut up and add it to the veggies when I am heating them on the stove top.  Fast and easy for me to have a really healthy lunch when I am studying.
