There's nothing more frustrating than coming home with a perfect meal to cook in mind, only to open the fridge and discover that one of the ingredients required has gone bad. To go back out to the store or not go back out to the store — that is the question! Save yourself the trouble and have some of these foods on hand. They keep well and make delicious, healthy dishes. When stored properly, most of the fruits and vegetables below can last seven or more days after your purchase them.
