Good workout Jim?

Running classes have been enjoying the good weather so we are spreading the love to the PM times.  Check out Nate’s running classes Tuesday at 5pm and Thursday at 6:30pm this week (Thursday takes place of PM rowing).  Sign up on MBO.

The Lean  and Mean challenge is in full swing.  How’s it going so far?  What’s been the most difficult part?  What’s been the easiest?

Are you using one or two days a week to prepare all your meals?  If that sounds like you, here are some helpful tips when it comes to storing food.

The temperature in your fridge should be 40 degrees or lower and the freezer should be at least 0 degrees.

If you use tupperware and there is a 7 on the bottom of it, toss it out.  It may contain unsafe BPA plastics.  Use glass storage containers, first because you can see what’s in them and they are eco friendly.

The longevity of fruits varies, but most last about a week in the fridge, but certain fruits can release gas when the start to spoil which can cause others to also spoil.  The list incluces:

  • avacados
  • bananas
  • nectartines and peaches
  • pears
  • plums
  • tomatoes

Also, don’t put the above in airtight bags, as they will spoil even fast.

Eggs, a staple in a lot of our breakfasts can last 3 – 5 weeks, but those egg beater things only last about 3 – 5 days.

Remember just because you may freeze food that doesn’t mean it will never go bad.  Milk lasts about a month. Butter and Eggs about a year.  Fresh fish 3-6 months, fresh poultry 6- 8 months, steak about 2- 3 months.  Airtight containers will help prevent freezer burn, but remember to date and label them so you have an idea what’s what.

Any other helpful storage ideas?  Post to comments.
