Momma Cuisine: Great Tips to Reduce Food Waste in Your Kitchen

About forty percent of food in the United States go to waste, which is very alarming because hunger and poverty rule in the other parts of the world. While we cannot necessarily control the waste occurring in restaurants and grocery stores, we can control the food waste occurring in our homes. In this article, allow us to help you through tips and tricks for reducing food waste in your kitchen.

1. Do not waste your leftovers. It doesn’t mean that you just have to reheat it and eat the next meal. You can make simple dishes out of your leftovers, like a different recipe, so don’t microwave food as it can reduce the texture and taste of food.

2. Remake your leftovers ideas. You can fry to make some butter, make a quinoa salad, or rice salad for leftover grains and legumes. You can add peas to make fried rice, as well as shredded carrots, bits of leftover ham, and toss it with tamari or soy sauce. You will surely be delighted to add leftover grains and legumes to soups and salads. Fry your unique recipe of grain and legumes patties with egg, herbs, and spices in a shallow pan. You can fry leftover lentils and add Mexican seasoning.

You can do great recipes with leftover meats. Thin slices of beef, chicken or pork can make a delicious recipe for soups, salads, and sandwiches. Nothing can beat a cold roast beef served with mustard to dip and homemade biscuits for a simple lunch.

4. Don’t put your leftover oatmeal or cereal into the trash bin. Add honey, a dash of cinnamon, eggs, and rice flour to make some patties.

5. It is best to organize your food leftovers. Place your leftovers in mason jars for a plastic-free option. Do not forget to add the date.

6. Store your leftovers in the fridge. Use transparent containers to see the food inside because if you don’t see them, the food will likely go to waste.

7. Serving in small portions is best for children. Children are too overwhelmed if they are served too much so provide small portions for them to crave more.

8. Always have a plan when buying food. More food means more food waste so avoid impulsive food buying. It is best to make a list of your needed ingredients that is enough for your next grocery day.
