Got this tip from Dr. Sears (Zone Diet) and I have to admit, there seems to be some truth.
Buy your fruits and veggies frozen, if you tend to find yourself throwing away tons of rotten fruit.
It's frozen at the time it is picked, with peak nutrition remaining in it's frozen state. Cooked, it's perfect.
Uncooked, some are close to perfect (i.e. blueberries, mango, peaches in a bowl of cereal, strawberries in smoothies). I am SICK of buying strawberries and finding them turning moldy within a day or two of bringing them home.
I'd love to eat fresh off the farm, but it just doesn't work for me.
