STORE FOOD SMARTLY

Updated: Nov 5, 2021

FIRST IN, FIRST OUT

When unpacking your shopping, keep older foods in the front, so that you don’t forget about them.


KEEP IT IT WHOLE AND SEPARATE

  • One bad piece of fruit or veg can quickly cause the rest to spoil – so keep them separate. Don’t keep onions with potatoes, or bananas with other fruits, as the first ones accelerate the ripening of the others.

  • Store cucumbers and tomatoes at room temperature (unless they are already sliced).

  • Wait to wash berries until you want to eat them to prevent mold.

  • Avoid slicing food until you are ready to use it (unless you freeze it). Chopped fruits, cheese, vegs spoil faster.

  • Bread keeps better in a cool dark place such as a bread bin or a store cupboard. Don’t keep bread in a plastic bag or in the fridge where it will become stale – instead freeze slices and toast them when you need them.

KEEP IT COVERED

  • Cover leftover pasta and rice with a lid to avoid them drying out.

  • Use beeswax on cotton or compostable parchment paper (If You Care, available from Wholefood, the Good Club) to wrap up cheese, meat, fish.

KEEP IT COOL

  • The ideal setting for your fridge is 5 degrees.

  • Organise your fridge.
