Here are some ways to turn your kitchen into a more efficient lean mean feeding machine.
Know where and how to store your food.
Some fresh produce like fruit and vegetables prefers to be kept in the open. Keep very ripe fruit apart from fresher fruit unless you want to ripen the fresher fruit more quickly.
Cupboards are OK when the label says “Store in a cool dry place.”
It is obvious enough if the label says Keep refrigerated or frozen. Your fridge should be between 3°C (37°F) and 5°C (40°F). Your freezer should maintain -18°C (0°F).
It sounds obvious but this is the most common mistake we all make. Make a shopping list and avoid too many impulsive buys.
The EatByApp has a brilliant shopping list feature available to those who upgrade! The function even learns what you need to replace and automatically suggests them on the list. Clever eh?
We've all done it – mournfully thrown it away that thing we found at the back that would have been lovely to eat if it wasn't three weeks out of date. If only we'd seen past that rotting lettuce.
Use the EatBy App every time you store your food.
