I just bought a vegetable spiral slicer and Im so excited!! I was wondering if anyone has some tips or tricks about getting rid of excess water and storing (plan to make a decent amount for the week) zucchini noodles. Thanks!

i do the same- make big batches at once. i'd do like 4 zucchini and have them for about 4-5 days in the fridge in a big freezer bag. works fine.

Both fatty acids and glucose are converted into acetyl CoA and then go through the exact same process in the mitochondria to produce ATP (energy).

We use glass boxes for our lunch boxes. They are easy to wash and easy on the environment. I am sure that a few days of using aluminum foil will not hurt your food or the environment :)

If you eat carbs, many (leangains) say the resulting rise in insulin shuts down fat burning and simultaneously creates a condition of increased fat storage efficiency. Others (Lyle McDonald) say its not so simple. From experience I've found... (more)

They should be soft to the touch and give a little with a gentle squeeze. If they are hard leave them out at room temp until they ripen. If they are ripe I would place them in the fridge.

I've never put nuts in the refrigeration. How do you store them - in plastic jars, glass jars, or ziplock bags? What shelf/drawer in the fridge do you put them - with veggies? How cold do you keep them? Thanks.
