In order for our food to be tasty, aromatic and fresh, we need to know how to store it properly. Check out some foods that are not good to keep in the fridge.


In almost every home after the market, tomatoes are placed in the refrigerator. At this temperature, they lose their aroma and taste. The cold air in the refrigerator stops the ripening process. That's why store tomatoes at room temperature.


Fresh basil is great for your sauces, soups, smoothies, but you shouldn't refrigerate it. Exposed to this low temperature, basil will lose its freshness very quickly. Also, the herb has the ability to take on flavors from other foods, which will change its flavor as well. When you buy fresh basil sprigs, soak them in a glass of water. This will keep them fresh for a few days.

Onion and garlic

Onions and garlic are also good to store in a dry and cool place, but not in the refrigerator. Moisture and low temperature will accelerate the mold process.


To enjoy the taste of avocado, it must be well ripe. If you buy a green avocado, place it in a sunny spot at home to speed up the ripening process.
