Bring Freshness Home


It’s still early enough in 2016 to have those healthy eating resolutions in mind, but there’s a good chance that you’ve slipped back into old habits once again. But why wait to make a change? Today is the perfect day to kickstart a life-long love of fresh and healthy food.

While fresh food is much more beneficial in many ways than processed food, and doesn’t contain as much sugar or salt, it is also prone to going off quicker. For many, this means either throwing out unused food or multiple trips to the shops in a week.

But it doesn’t have to be that way; proper storage can keep it fresh for longer. This could be as simple as learning which shelf items should be stored on, or tips like storing sour cream and cottage cheese tubs upside down to help keep the air out.

Technology also has a part to play. The Whirlpool No Frost Fridge Freezer, for example, constantly monitors the temperature of the inside of the fridge and activates the rapid cooling mode if there is a sudden change. It also boasts Fresh Control, which adjusts humidity levels and keeps food fresh for up to four times longer.

For others, preparation time can be an issue. Eating fresh and healthy doesn’t have to be a burden or inconvenience though. Why not add a smoothie, juice, or soup to your daily diet? The Nutribullet liquifies foods quickly, pulverising the stems, seeds and skins, unlocking their nutritional benefits better than your run-of-the-mill blender. As the Nutribullet takes care of breaking down dense and fibrous foods, your body can focus on absorbing the maximum amount of nutrients locked inside instead.
