Before going grocery shopping, plan your meals for the week and create a shopping list based on the ingredients you'll need.
Proper storage can help extend the shelf life of perishable foods. Store fruits and vegetables in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator, keep pantry items in a cool, dry place, and use airtight containers to store leftovers.
Instead of throwing away leftovers, get creative and repurpose them into new meals. For example, leftover vegetables can be added to soups, stews, or omelets, while stale bread can be turned into breadcrumbs or croutons.
To avoid buying more food than you need, make frequent trips to the grocery store every few days rather than doing a bulk shopping trip once a week.
While you might think fermenting and pickling are new fads, food preservation techniques like these have been used for thousands of years.
You’ve probably heard the saying, “out of sight, out of mind.” This rings especially true when it comes to food.
