Every Sunday I make a big salad for the week filled with all kinds of stuff, put it into a Tupperware container, and eat it during the week with dinner. The first thing I do is put the romaine lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, green peppers and broccoli in a large container with one capful of clorox and two or three gallons of water, soak everything for ten minutes, and of course rinse everything well, then dry. This removes bacteria, parasites, and fungus. When I told a friend about this, he thought I was nuts! I thought everyone pretty much did this when you brought veggies and fruit home from the store. By the way, I do the same when I purchase lemon, oranges, etc. Does anyone else do this?
