Health Tip: Don't Waste Fruits and Veggies

(HealthDay News) -- When you live in a one-person household, buying groceries and cooking meals can be a challenge without wasting food.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to avoid wasting fruits and vegetables:

  • Grocery shop every few days for the freshest produce.
  • If you can't shop frequently, stock up on frozen fruits and vegetables, choosing products without added sugars or sauces.
  • Skip bulk bags of fruits and vegetables unless you can use them all before they spoil.
  • Use the most perishable produce, such as berries and spinach, soon after you shop.
