Prevent Wasted Food
Prepare Now and Eat Later
Preparing ingredients ahead of time can make it easier to create meals later in the week as well as save time, effort and money.
Tips to practice SMART PREP
When you get home from shopping, wash, dry, chop and prepare items.
Place items in clear storage containers - so you can quickly identify the contents.
Freeze food you don't plan to eat within a few days such as bread, sliced fruit, vegetables or meat.
Cook several meals at once. Then store them in the refrigerator or freezer for later in the week.
Prepare and cook perishable items such as meat, then freeze it for use throughout the month.
