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.

Wellness with lifestyle and nutrition is basically free to many people because healthy lifestyle and plant-based nutrition creates wellness and prevents or reverses health challenges. However unhealthy nutrition and lifestyle creates chronic health challenges. The current popular expensive high fat animal protein fad diet is linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and kidney disease. Human beings are designed to live on fruits, vegetables, seeds, sprouted grains and legumes. Also Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and liability is available on most auto insurance and most homes and public places have liability insurance in case of accidental injury and there are crowd-source funding and personal injury litigation options.
I went with my friend, George Sommers, author of I SAW WILD PARROTS IN NEW YORK CITY!, Yellow Bird, and Papita to The Parrot Society of New England’s “Spring Is In The Air” Bird Behavior and Toy Rehab Seminar in Manchester, NH. The workshop by Robin Shewokis and Concetta DellaRocco Ferragamo included parrot care, training, Q&A, and a mock training session I was volunteered into as the “trainer” of another woman as the “parrot”. In attendance were many beautiful parrots and people including the talented artist, Jill Casteel, with her beautiful artwork. I took a few photos with my camera until the battery died and more with my cell phone which I will “upload” later. The macaw below would fluff it’s wings every time I said, “You’re so pretty.” Afterwards we watched a fun DVD that came with the book, Snowball The Dancing Cockatoo, on his portable DVD player on the lawn while Yellow Bird and Papita chirped contentedly together in their love nest.
Apparently the natural habitat of these lovely exotic animals and their human friends is being rapidly destroyed by “Big-Agri-Biz” to graze cattle which seems an inefficient, uneconomical, and unsustainable use of natural resources because the Amazon Rainforest produces most of the oxygen we need and fruits, veggies, and seeds contain all the nutrients we need including carbohydrates, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants (prevent and reverse cancer), fiber, enzymes, and phyto-nutrients to build natural wellness and prevent costly health care crisis.
