My Tips:

  • For fresh fruits and veggies soak them in 1 gallon water with 1 oz bleach and 1 oz vinegar, before using them.
  • Use real Butter-Butter flavored spreads contain a lot of compounds you won't want in your dishes.
  • When cooking root starchy vegetables, allways start them in cold water so they can cook evenly
