Embrace Imperfection.

Produce comes in all shapes and sizes and can sport bumps and bruises…just like people! Baldor Food’s produce expert, Produce Pat, suggests asking for the produce items that aren’t picture perfect, otherwise known as “seconds.” Because the more aesthetically pleasing products are chosen first, vendors often sell these blemished items at a discounted rate even though these passed-over picks still pack the same nutritional punch and tasty benefits as their prettier counterparts. Save cash and cut down on food waste—it’s a win-win.
