Annually, in Europe, according to some research, about 88 million tons of food is cast. Given that each household contributes to these figures, there are some small things that we can do to reduce these numbers. Proper storage of food
We do not cook many foods as it should be washed away and it breaks faster. For example, most fruits should be kept in the fridge. The only fruit that can stand at room temperature without any problems is bananas, everything else is best placed in the refrigerator, unless you eat it within two to three days.
Also, do not keep fruits and vegetables until you start eating or preparing it because the moisture will speed up the process of decay. But clean the vegetables from the ground and the roots. But even in the refrigerator, it is good to store foods in glass containers in which they will keep freshness for longer. Take the waste
Before you throw waste into the trash, you can use them in cooking. For example, you can use the bark of onion, carrot or celery remnants as the foundation in which you will insert the bones you currently have. But do not throw the bones into compost later. Remnants of lunch / dinner
Perhaps you are not a fan of repeating one meal twice a day, but it’s better to throw completely fresh foods. What remains of you can be used for one of the meals the next day, just store it properly and make sure you know which foods you can warm up and which you do not. Potatoes and mushrooms are not well-heated, the chopped head of the bow should be wrapped in aluminum foil and the like. Freeze surplus
Of course, we are all accustomed to frozen stuffed pepper and charm, but you can do the same with many other dishes, and it will be tasty as you prepared them fresh. Donate
Of course, you will not donate lunch remnants, but if you notice that you have loaded kitchen cabinets and pantries with too much foods such as rice, pasta, flour, dried pods and similar foods, donate to local associations that help socially vulnerable.
