Show of hands! Who buys wonderful, expensive, organic fruits and veggies with the best intentions of making a healthful meal, only to throw them away weeks later, after the fridge starts to produce a strong, foul odor?
Mel’s tip, which has been working for a while: When you realize you are not going to use them and they are about to mold or go bad, throw them in a plastic bag and freeze. Frozen strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and bananas are perfect for smoothies in your blender. In fact, they are better frozen because then you can skip the ice, making for more vitamin-packed smoothies.
