How many of you have gone to the fridge to make dinner or prepare a healthy snack only to find that your Produce has gone bad? This happens to us Frequently! I don't know if it's because we have an old fridge or if we are just horrible at eating produce fast enough, but EVERY week, we have to throw out produce that has gone bad within 3 days of purchasing it. We were TIRED of throwing our money out with the food.
Did you know–American households throw out 25% of produce purchased – because it has gone bad, tossing out an average of $600 of food per year per family, according an eight year USDA funded study?
Because of this, I was THRILLED to be able to product test the Bluapple (as seen on "The Dr's" Tv show)!
The Result is Fresher produce LONGER! It was just like Christmas when my package arrived in the mail, and I immediately put it to work, as we had just purchased Groceries that day. I placed one bluapple in each storage drawer in our fridge–one for Fruits and one for Vegetables, and then I forgot about them.
More than 1 week later: I'm ecstatic to report that we have not had to throw out food this week! And in fact I saw a dramatic difference in our produce! Especially the strawberries! Normally after 2 days in the fridge they start to shrivel slightly, discolor and by 3 days they start to grow mold on all of the berries and the entire pack has to be thrown out. ON PURPOSE, I left a package of strawberries in the fridge for 6 days. None of the strawberries had shriveled, or discolored, and only ONE strawberry out of the entire pack had just began to grow a small section of fuzz. (and it happened to be the one which was crushed at the bottom.). Our lettuce is still fresh, crisp and NOT brown. Grapes, are fresh and crisp. Carrots are brilliantly colored and moist. Our tomatoes are still just as good as the day we put them in the storage bin…1 week ago! I'm just so amazed that NONE of our produce is shriveled or needs to be thrown out!
You can find Bluapple at natural food stores, fine retail grocers, and co-ops around the country or online.
