LOVE YOUR LEFTOVERSNo matter how hard we try, sometimes we cannot avoid leftover ingredients or extra portions
With careful planning, leftovers can be a great way to save time, save money and eat well too.
Some dishes can be specially prepared to provide more than one meal, such as casseroles or stews. Delicious meals can also be created from one leftover ingredient in your fridge.
The clue to using up leftovers is thinking about what you will do with them as you put them away. They can be lunch tomorrow, dinner next week or a late night snack.
TOP TIPS TO LEFTOVERS SUCCESS!
1. Slow food today can be fast food tomorrow. Factor leftovers into your meal planning by making a bit more and planning to use it for lunch or dinner the next day2. Add a ‘leftovers' night or ‘Fridge Raid Friday’ to your weekly meal plan to use up all the ingredients in your fridge
3. Store leftovers in the right sized airtight container and freeze immediately if they won’t be eaten within 1-2 days
4. Keep a pen and labels to hand to mark up leftovers when you freeze them, so you know exactly what they are when you’re choosing your leftover meal
