7 Foods To NEVER Put In Your Refrigerator

Did you know that refrigeration can actually cause certain foods to spoil faster? In fact, here are 7 foods you should NEVER put in your refrigerator.

It’s late at night, which obviously means I’m making frequent trips to my refrigerator. Truth be told, I am literally standing here with the refrigerator door open, typing this newsletter on my phone as I look for a healthy snack to satisfy my every craving. Hmmm, what to eat? I think I’ll go with strawberries tonight (low calorie, high fiber, low glycemic, and quite filling), but for now, probably much like you, all this refrigerator talk has got me in the mood to TYPE SOME NEWS!

Having said that, did you know that refrigeration can actually cause certain foods to spoil faster? It’s true. In fact, here are 7 foods that you’ll never find in my refrigerator (mostly because I store them somewhere else):

1. Bananas

Storing bananas in the refrigerator can actually disrupt the ripening process. In fact, once refrigerated, a banana may never be able to resume the ripening process even if returned to room temperature. Just think of how devastating that is for the banana 🙁

2. Sweet Potatoes

When exposed to cold temperatures, starches found in potatoes will turn to sugar, disrupting their flavor and texture, not to mention increasing their sugar content. If you prefer tasteless potatoes that cause weight gain, however, please refrigerate.

3. Tomatoes

Ever had a really amazing tomato right out of the fridge? Me either. Tomatoes actually lose their flavor and become mushy when refrigerated. Yumn’t.

4. Apples

Same as above, apples lose their texture and flavor when refrigerated. Instead, place an apple in the fridge about 30 mins before eating if you prefer your apples cold. That’s what I always do anyway.

5. Onions

If you love soggy onions while also causing the rest of your food to taste and smell like onions, then you’ll definitely want to refrigerate your onions immediately. Otherwise, try storing them in a paper bag (within a cool, dark cabinet) for maximum shelf-life.

6. Avocados

Much like the banana, refrigeration shuts down an avocado’s ripening enzymes. If you want guacamole next month, this may be OK, but if you’re like me, you probably want guacamole today.

7. Coffee

Contrary to popular belief, coffee is best stored at room temperature to allow the natural oils within the coffee bean to activate its pungent aromatic scent. My brother Big Jim, who savagely loves all things coffee, let me in on this little secret. On the flip side, refrigeration can actually cause coffee to absorb odors from other foods in your fridge. Onion flavored coffee anyone? Don’t make that mistake twice guys…

Call To Action

Speaking of refrigerators, is it really possible that over 100 study participants lost on average 28 pounds in a 10 week period simply by harnessing the power of one odd, but extremely effective fat-burning herb?

Well, that’s exactly what a recent placebo-controlled, double-blind study showed, and at the link below we’ll show you precisely which herb that is, along with where you can easily find the exact same herb used in this breakthrough study:
