Keep Your Leafy Greens Fresh Longer With These 3 Tips

December 23, 2014 6:46 pm

Leafy greens are some of the most nutrient-rich vegetables, but they’re also some of the fastest to spoil. If you’re tired reaching for your lunchtime kale and being faced with a pile of wilted, mushy leaves, it’s time to change your green routine. Here are three helpful tips that will keep your leafy greens their greenest.

  1. Choose wisely. Maintaining healthy greens requires that they’re in good quality to begin with. Be sure to shop at a grocery store that frequently restocks its produce section, because greens tend to mold very quickly. When choosing a bundle of spinach, lettuce, or kale, look for dark, vibrant colors without any signs of yellowing or splitting.
  2. Refrigerate properly. Don’t stuff your greens just anywhere inside of your refrigerator. Be sure to keep greens separate from fruits, because fruits emit gases that are harmful to vegetables. Store greens in the plastic bag that they came in, and if they’re especially delicate, place them inside of a sturdy paper bag as well.
  3. Wash thoroughly. You should never wash your greens before refrigerating them because it causes wilting, but make sure that you wash them thoroughly before eating. Rinsing the whole bundle in the sink or a salad spinner will rid them of any dirt or harmful pesticides.
