Love Food, Hate Waste
Whether it’s the last few slices bread or the pasta that was cooked for two but could have fed four! Here are simple tips which could help you save money:
- Keep your apples in the fridge instead of the fruit bowl (they'll keep fresh for around two weeks longer)
- Weigh / measure rice and pasta before cooking. 1/4 of a mug of rice is sufficient for one adult.
- Checking dates saves money. Food can be eaten right up to a 'use-by' date or frozen. 'Best before' dates are for quality so there is no need to throw out food on the stated date - eggs being the exception.
