Please RDs could someone help with this?!? I have asked this question a number of times on social media and I get a nod but no answers. I’d like articles, may be a series, with info on how to tell different vegetables are ‘fresh’. Let me explain. There are great recipes with avocados and eggplant and many other veggies that are…foreign to me. I want to try them but I don’t know how to buy them. Eggplant firm or soft? Avocado green, less green, hard, soft? Why do they turn colour, is it ok to use the prepared avocado when it turns colour? Any other veggies that are not the usual. I got the potatoes-carrots-green beans-cauliflower-broccoli down pat. Please can someone write about this? I need to try new things without wasting my money. I’m exhausted. Lol.
