Most of us just assume that all fruits and vegetables should be refrigerated, but according to Chef Rachel Ruben, not all foods need to be kept in the cold. Yes, putting all of your fruits and vegetables in the refrigerator will help them last longer, but they will also lose their flavor and nutrients. Here are three foods that should be kept at room temperature in your Montebello apartments.
Apples: lose many of their key nutrients and will not taste as fresh.
Onions: can lose their potency and should be stored on a counter to help maximize taste.
Tomatoes: will lose their texture and become soggier much faster inside the refrigerator.
