Mistakes many people make: 13 common foods you should never keep in the refrigerator

I’ll never forget when I moved out of my parents’ house and got my first apartment. I suddenly had so many things to think about from paying bills and doing household chores to going grocery shopping.

I made a lot of beginner’s mistakes, wasting both time and money. But it’s okay. Sometimes, you just have to learn the hard way.

One thing that I used to do, but have since learned is a big mistake, is to put almost all perishable food in the fridge. Everything would stay fresh, I thought!

But what I didn’t realize was that some foods are actually worse off in there. They simply go bad — and have to be thrown out unnecessarily.

So when I saw this list, I was shocked. Here are 13 foods you should never put in the fridge!

Potatoes

The starch in potatoes turns into sugar much faster — and your potatoes become sweeter and grittier.

Spices

They lose flavor and your recipes won’t turn out the way they’re supposed to.

Oils

They change color and texture.

Basil

It wilts faster in the fridge – it needs heat!

Apples

They hold up better outside of the fridge.

Bread

It gets dry in the fridge.

Garlic

It not only loses flavor but also gets rubbery and moldy.

Onions

They get soft and moldy. It’s best to store them in a dark place at room temperature.

Tomatoes

The cold air stops them from ripening, which means they don’t taste as good.

Coffee

It loses flavor and absorbs other smells and flavors.

Honey

It crystallizes and changes flavor.

Bananas

They lose nutrients, ripen much slower, turn brown and rot.

Avocados

They stop ripening in the fridge. On the other hand if you have ripe avocados that you aren’t going to eat immediately, you can store them in the fridge.
