LiveNow: It’s All About the Veggies in June

A little planning goes a long way. Take one hour to cut vegetables for the week to make dinner prep easier on busy nights.Vegetables and Fruits

These vegetables can then be roasted, thrown into a stir-fry or used to make salads or snacks. Plus you save money on cleanup time.

Hy-Vee Dietitian Kristin Sousek has some tips on preparation:

• Harder vegetables such as carrots, peppers, broccoli and cauliflower usually last through the week. Softer vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumbers should be used within three to four days.

• Separate, wash and dry lettuce leaves. Store leaves in a resealable bag with a couple sheets of paper towels to absorb the water. Keep refrigerated.

• For fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro, wash, shake dry and wrap in a paper towel before storing them in a resealable bag.
