My sister-in-law is a cancer victim and she is eating only fresh vegies and fruit. I would like to cut her fruit and vegies into small portions and put them in a zip lock bag for several days so she doesn’t have to stand every day and take the time to chop but I’m concerned that the nutrition becomes compromised when it sits for a few days.

If I have refrigerated grapes and then leave them unrefrigerated overnight..are they still good?

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

Yes, they will still be good.  Grapes stay the freshest and taste best if they are stored in a refrigerator in a plastic bag, however, they will not go bad from sitting out overnight.

The USDA is recommending not more five, but four portions/day?? Is it right?? Is there any guidance regarding which number fruit portions should be included in these four daily portions?? Regards
