Vinegar Wash for Veggies and Fruit

You know by now that I support meal prepping as much as possible to set yourself up for a week of success.  One super easy way of doing this is by making sure all of your veggies and fruit are washed and ready for the week.  That way in a moment of hunger you’re not reaching for temptations when an already washed apple is sitting out waiting.  Every little bit you can prepare before hand is worth it.  I try and throw my veggies and fruit that need to be washed in the clean sink when I get home from the grocery store.  This way they soak while I put away grocery and are done when I’m finished.  Then I just need to dry them and put them away.  AND they last longer when they are washed and don’t taste like vinegar… I swear!

Quick, easy way to wash a lot of fruits/vegetables so they are ready for your week.

Vinegar Wash for Fruits and Vegetables

*1 cup white vinegar

  1. Fill your clean sink with cold water half way and add 1 cup of white vinegar
  2. Peel the stickers off of your fruit and add to the water
  3. Let soak for 10 minutes (about half way through I’ll rearrange the fruit/veggies so all sides get soaked)
  4. Drain water
  5. Rinse and scrub the fruits/veggies
  6. Remove fruit and let completely dry before storing
Air dry or towel dry after the rinse and before storing
