Fresh Greens

How to keep salad greens fresh longer outside of refrigerator, save on electricity bill, and cut down carbon footprint all at the same time:
1. Cut thin slice off bottom of head of celery, lettuce, etc.
2. Find a dish the right size to hold greens upright.
3. Place greens upright in dish.
4. Add water to cover the bottom by about 1″.
5. Check water level and recut new sliver if needed.

I think of greens as like fresh cut flowers and treat them the same way.

Btw, I eat fruit, veggies, nuts/seeds, grains and legumes that all do not require refrigeration so I only use a small dorm style refrigerator. This is one of the many ways I stay healthy, save money, and lower my carbon footprint.

Here are photos of fresh Boston lettuce.

RAW

In 1990 I discovered I have a secondary food allergy to cooked cow milk, went vegan, began reading about food allergies, and began elimination challenge testing as suggested by my holistic medical doctor, Dr. Ward of Holistic Family Practice, Newburyport, MA. Eventually I found out I have secondary food allergies to cooked milk, wheat, soy, and corn – the four most common food allergens. Two books inspired me to become a 100% raw-foodist on April 1, 1999: Allergies – Disease in Disguise by Carolee Bateson Koch and The Essene Gospel of Peace by Edmond Bordeaux Szekeley. After two months of being all raw, I felt so good that I never went back to being a cooked-foodist and my life keeps getting better and better. :) Click on images for more information.
