A diet that consists primarily of fresh produce can be flavorful and rewarding. However, working with fresh produce daily can have its pitfalls. Fresh ingredients are time-consuming to process and some require bulky kitchen appliances that take up a considerable amount of space in the kitchen. To make matters worse, without the added preservatives, fresh produce tends to spoil within a few days, meaning more trips to the grocery store during the week.
