If you keep fresh basil in the fridge it will wither faster and absorb the smells of other foods in your fridge. Better keep it out the fridge in a glass of fresh water. Or freeze them for later use.
In the fridge, onions will turn soft and moldy. They are best kept in a dark, cool area that is well ventilated. Separated them from your potatoes to avoid onions to rot faster.
Just as onions, garlic is best kept in a dark, cool place. When stored in the fridge they lose their flavor, go moldy, or sprout.
Potatoes are best kept in a paper bag in your pantry or root cellar to avoid them to rot fast. In the fridge the starch in your potatoes will turn to sugars more quickly.

If you leave your winter squashes – like butternut, spaghetti, or acorn squash – in your pantry they will last longer and taste better.
Tomatoes lose their flavor when stored in the fridge. They stop ripening and the cold temperature even change their texture. So best leave your tomatoes out of the fridge in a paper bag or basket.

For the best flavor, keep melons on the counter at room temperature. Once cut store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Citrus fruits – like lemons, limes, and organs – are best kept in a cool dark place at room temperature to increase their flavor. They will keep for about a week, after that best place them in your fridge to preserve them for longer periods.
If you store apples in the fridge it will ruin their flavor and texture. Store on the counter for up to 2 weeks. If you want to preserve them longer, store in your fridge.
11. Unripe fruits
Unripe fruits such as peaches, nectarines, apricots, avocados, or berries are best kept outside the fridge to ripen and increase their flavor. When ripe, eat them or store in the fridge to increase their longevity.
Keeping honey in the fridge causes crystallization and hardening. Actually there is no need to keep your honey in the fridge. When properly sealed it will keep for ages at room temperature.

Don’t store bread in your fridge, it won’t keep longer. It will dry out. Keep at your countertop in a paper bag or freeze for later use.

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
