Everyone would want the kitchen to be clean and neatly arranged. Kitchen cleanliness determines the quality of food served.

Many people tend to buy large quantities of food in order to stock. But they don’t predict when this food will rot. Food that is wasted wastefully will become a nest of germs.

1. Dispose of food that is not needed

If being healthy is one of the resolutions of 2019 then start getting rid of unhealthy foods. Various foods high in fat, fried foods and sweet foods must be reduced immediately.

2. Hold lust

If you are a fan of sweet foods, the step to take is to reduce intake. Try to stop consuming sweet foods in any form.

The most effective way to suppress lust when seeing a favorite food is to pretend not to see it. Keep unhealthy food from the table and food storage cabinet. Store this food in a place that is invisible and hard to reach.

3. Create a Food Stock Amount Plan

“The biggest mistake people make when storing food in their refrigerator is when buying food without a plan, which usually leads to the purchase of unnecessary items,” said Andres Ayesta, a nutritionist.

If you have compiled a shopping list, you can be sure there will be less food stored in the refrigerator. This food also has the potential for smaller rot. So don’t waste it by buying a lot of food.

4. Recognize Refrigerator Capacity at Home

Adding too much food in the refrigerator does not make food durable and long lasting. Food will actually lack air circulation which actually makes it quickly damaged.

Imagine when vegetables, fruits and fresh ingredients like chicken and fish are stored in the same container. Not only will the aroma interfere but also this will make cross contamination. Not to mention, this method will make the refrigerator quickly damaged.

5. Create a Cook Plan

If you have a cooking plan maybe the food will be used more optimally. Because you only buy food ingredients according to the list and all these ingredients are cooked according to the planned time.

Don’t forget to handle food properly before storing it in the refrigerator. For example washing, cleaning and storing food ingredients in the right place.
