[AD] YAY or NAY?
In these series of videos, I am sharing my top tips to reducing food waste and plastic usage. Swipe left to see the 9 ways to do so:
1) Storing carrots – I found out that storing carrots in a water bath keeps them fresher. Simply cut off the greens (which I use to make yummy pesto) and place in a glass container, cover entirely with water and make sure to change the water every few days. The carrots would stay fresh for up to a month with Haier FresherTechs.
2) Storing herbs – I trim the ends of the herbs and then keep in individual glass jars with a little bit of water in. This will help them last for around 2-3 weeks, as long as you change the water every few days.
3) Reusable bags – These are produce bags and mesh nut bags in which you can store food. They are a great alternative to plastic bags as you can wash them and re-use again and again.
4) Glass containers/Pantry Organisation – When storing any prepped (chopped, etc.) veggies and fruit or leftover food or homemade milks and nuts, make sure to keep them in airtight containers so that they stay as fresh as possible. I’ve noticed them lasting even longer with my Haier Fridge Freezer. Glass containers, jars and bottles are definitely a good investment and much better alternative to plastic.
5) Meal prep – Meal planning is important to me as it helps me stay healthy, organised and reduce food waste. I meal prep my morning smoothies and a lot of my lunches and keep them in glass containers. I can easy arrange them in my @HaierUK Fridge freezer and just take out what I need when I need it.
6) Leftover edible flowers – Instead of throwing away any edible flowers that don’t make it onto my desserts, I make ice cubes with them to use in drinks. The Haier Fridge freezer has a Switch Zone where I can change a compartment from fridge to freezer and back again so I can control the temperature myself so I can slowly freeze the flowers into crystal clear ice cubes. Aren’t they pretty? This feature has definitely helped me tackle food waste! (Continued in comments) … #HaierAgainstWaste
