When properly stored, fresh food can last for longer! Some simple tips can really extend your food's lifespan and avoid going to waste. Our favourites?


- Treat herbs like flowers! Pop them in a glass of water and keep them either in the fridge or even out, if you are planning to use them fairly soon.


- Store your leafy greens in a muslin kitchen towel to pick up any excess moisture. Just remember to change the muslin every couple of days to keep the veggies dry.


- Keep bananas away from all the other fruit: bananas release more ethylene than any other fruit, which causes them to ripe a lot quicker, so it’s best to keep them separate from other fruits to make them all last longer!


- Don't obsess over best before dates: remember these are just suggestions, if it looks ok and it smells ok, it's probably ok to eat too!
