Now that we have gotten all the Fabulous Freebies out of the way, let’s talk produce care and preparation!

DIVA TIPS: PREPARING FABULOUS PRODUCE

  • Add your produce to a bowl or clean sink, and rub the fruits and vegetables briskly under running water. Try to use water that is close to the temperature of the produce you’ll be cleaning.

  • You do not need any detergent to clean your produce. If you wish to soak your produce for 5 or so minutes you may add white vinegar, but keep in mind a ratio of at least 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water is necessary to make it effective.

  • Firm produce such as apples or cucumbers can have a waxy preservative so be sure to wash extra well. I use a veggie / fruit brush (click here).

  • For leafy greens, separate and rinse leaves separately, discarding outer leaves if they’re bruised or torn. They can be tough to clean, so I prefer to soak them in a bowl of cold water for just a few minutes and briefly rinse after. Blot them dry with paper towels.

  • You do not need to rewash any products that are labeled “ready-to-eat” or “washed”, but I do it anyhow, LOL!!

  • Now be sure to keep Cucumbers, tomatoes, & asparagus on the counter top, not the fridge!  Actually you should treat asparagus like a flower to keep it fresh!!  Cut the ends and place them in water (again not in the fridge).

  • Uncut onions should be stored on the counter, however, once cut, onions should be stored in the fridge.  But get this!!!  Onions make potatoes sprout, so separate them!  

  • Potatoes love dark places, so storing in a pantry is ideal vs the counter top.

  • Use your fridge drawers humidity control levels properly.  Fruit like it dry, while veggies like it humid!

Basic Veggie Prep Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

2. Chop up your vegetables as desired. The larger the pieces, the longer they will take to cook, so try to make the ones in the batch you’re cooking of similar size.

3. Place vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet/dish lined with parchment paper (or foil if you prefer).

4. Drizzle with olive oil (you don’t need much!) and sprinkle with Himalayan pink salt (click here for my favorite salt brand), pepper and desired seasonings. Toss, coating the vegetables completely.

5. Roast (which means bake) for 30 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.


There you have it, my go to meal preparation technique for veggies (just about all of them too).  Asparagus, Brussel Sprouts, Kale, Sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, squash, fresh beets, carrots, and corn can all be prepared in the same fashion using different seasonings (if you prefer).  How much to prep depends on my meal plan for that given week!


I know your’re ready for it diva!  Let’s complete today’s Easy Diva task!
