6 tips to avoid wasting food unnecessarily
1) The shopping list always works
Doing the shopping list first of all, you will never forget what you need, so as to avoid having to go back to the supermarket (wasting gasoline and polluting unnecessarily). So you have double savings!
2) Buy only what you need
Marketing is designed to make us buy the things that the supermarket wants us to buy, not necessarily the one we really need. So stick to the list you made!
3) Check-up at the fridge
Be concerned about the health of your beloved fridge, checking its gaskets and efficiency.
I want your refrigerator to be cold, but not so cold that it freezes things. The preferred temperature is somewhere between 35 and 38 degrees F (1.7 to 3.3 degrees C). Anything higher and foods will spoil too quickly (it is described in several of the links below). Anything lower and freezing becomes a problem. (check your fridge user manual for more precise information)
4) On the kitchen shelves, order and discipline
Biscuits, pasta etc must be stored in a dry place (and the packages, once opened, must be carefully closed). In the refrigerator, it is advisable to use the top shelf for dairy products, the middle shelf for already cooked foods. Below, meat, fish and raw foods, always well spaced from each other. Use the drawers for fruit and vegetables (this information may vary from the model of fridge check the user manual of your fridge for more precise information)
5) Use the freezer
Meat, fish and fresh food in general tend to fade quickly.
Freeze everything you don’t need so as to avoid throwing
