The worst part about “healthy” grocery shopping is having to go to the store a week later when your food expires. What’s the point in buying fruits and vegetables if they don’t last? We feel you, which is why we’ve included our Astro Fruit & Veggie Keeper to this list of kitchen essentials. Not only does this tool look like a cute astronaut, but it’ll keep your veggies and fruit fresh. Now you can save money and eat healthy.
What’s a kitchen essentials list without a garlic press? Garlic is basically the new salt – it makes everything taste SO much better.
