Store fruits away from direct heat and sunlight.
Well, it is true that fruits ripe easily when exposed to sunlight, but doing so will only destroy fruits' nutrients such as Vitamins A and C. Wait for fruits to ripen normally. Fruits will become sweeter when ripen. It's worth the wait, I tell you.
Maintain proper storage procedures. There are lots of ways to maintain food's freshness. One way is to store them correctly-in a right place and appropriate temperature. Ask some tips from your grocer, I'm sure he'll tell you helpful ideas on proper storage. Also learn to follow the correct preparation methods and procedures.
Do you eat meat? If yes, then you must consider this tip: eat meat and fish within three days after purchase in order to maximize its freshness and nutritional benefits. Make sure to store meat in the refrigerator or chiller.
Before going to the supermarket, be sure to make a list about your week's menu and note for those perishable items. Consume those items which lose its freshness first and store them correctly. Green leafy vegetables quickly lose its high water content and tend to go limp while fruits such as apples are best consumed within one week after purchase.
Following these proper storage tips will lengthen food shelf life, thus reducing waste and cost.
