Tricky Tuesdays #10: Kitchen Hacks To Help You Cut Down On Food Waste

thenotsocreativecook is a little busy nowadays – with life, work and everything in between. But you know that I’d steal some time from my busy life to bring you another amazing tricky stuffs…

Today, it’s  not gonna be that much – I just found some awesome tricks on how to help cut down on food waste. And here are some of my picks:

Hide garlic and onions in holey paper bags: They’ll stay fresh for at least two months without molding.


Microwave citrus for 10-20 seconds before squeezing: A warm fruit releases more juice than cold.


Wrap celery in foil: It’ll keep for up to a month this way. Works for broccoli too.


Wrap banana crowns in plastic wrap: They’ll keep for 3-5 days longer than usual.


…and this one is my most loved among them all –

Add warm milk to the dregs of a Nutella jar and shake: Instant hot chocolate! 😀


I hope you find these interesting. Have a fabulous mid-week.
