I would like to start preparing some veggies in advance. Like sliced bell peppers, celery, cucumbers and onions and maybe make salads for 2 days in advance. Does anyone know if them will keep for two days I know the greens will but the peppers, celery and cucumber.
They'll be fine for a couple of days. Sometimes I prep a whole salad the day before. On the bottom of the container I put the dressing. Then the sliced veggies (cucumbers, avocado, green peas, peppers etc), then the greens on top and the sliced chicken/protein and a fork on top of those. This keeps really well and all I have to do the next day is toss it.
"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
I prep a whole salad without any wet ingredients (tomatoes, and dressing) and it keeps - in an airtight container in the fridge - for THREE DAYS. It's much easier.
