Have You Ever Considered Reheating Food?
Our busy schedules and jam-packed days make it nearly impossible to do anything that takes up time, including preparing meals from scratch. As such, it becomes rare for families to enjoy home-cooked meals that often take hours to prepare and we are instead left with no choice but to go for fast but often unhealthy meal choices.
Not a lot of people realize that there is still a way around this. The simple act of reheating food does not just help reduce time for preparation but also lets everyone enjoy great tasting meals (yes, it is possible) in a hassle-free manner.
Reheating does not actually involve leftover food but it may also include meals that have been prepared and cooked ahead of time so that planning and preparation is no longer needed come meal time. A lot of families plan ahead of time, usually on a weekly basis, cook their food in one sitting, store them into per-meal packs and then reheat them when it is time for consumption.
Unfortunately, not many of us can see the importance of reheating food. In a recent study, it was found out that a lot of households throw out most of their leftover food due to the lack of knowledge and storing and reheating them. Yes, food can spoil easily and we would rather not risk our family’s health by consuming it but, when they are stored and reheated properly, they can last much longer and still taste great.
You might just be surprised that the process of reheating food is not just a science but an art to master. There is a correct process that has to be followed to make sure that the food is able to get a longer shelf life.
Are you excited to store, reheat and recycle leftover food and turn them into delicious ‘new’ meals? We’ve prepared an infographic below full of all the essential things you need to know to make sure that you store and reheat your food safely and properly.
Have a great meal ahead!
