Rotting Food



What's the story with rotting vegetables? Every now and then some of my lettuce/sprouts/broccoli spends too much time in the fridge and starts to turn a little bit brown/yellow at the ends. Is it still OK to eat? I'm guessing it's not optimal, but not terminal either. Or is it the kind of thing that should be avoided entirely?

    I eat 'imperfect' fruits and veggies all the time. I just carve off the bad parts and eat up. But it's almost certainly not optimal. The BP diet makes a big deal out of freshness and the avoidance of molds, so such fruits and veggies probably aren't BP.


    In the case of broccoli, I'll steam it up as long as it's not too discolored. If the majority of the head is nasty looking, I won't eat it.

    I don't think it would be too bad, depending how often it happens. If it happens a lot, maybe you need to reevaluate your buying routine.
