Classed under: Home tips

We do the groceries, we make a game plan, and then we cook… But after dinner, we realize there’s leftovers. Since food waste is a tough opponent, we need to be quick on our skates to find solutions. Before you throw in the towel, try these winning options.

The importance of the pre-game
The trick to avoid freezing when facing off with leftovers is to plan them in advance. The weekend is the perfect moment to think of a menu and plan how to use the extra portions. This strategy allows you to save money and time, as well as prevent food waste. The freezer’s your star player to manage surplus.

Play two games in one night
If you’re going be cooking, why not optimize your time on the ice? Save your cold cuts for delicious sandwiches topped with a winning trio of pepperoni, salami, and smoked ham. Choose one meat as the star player and make it the centre of your health bowls on the weekend. The key is to pick versatile ingredients that can play anywhere on the team.

To recover after a big game
Sausages are up next? Add them to your pasta for dinner and eat the leftover sausages in an omelette for brunch or on a delicious pizza the next day. A whole roster of recipes is available online to inspire you!

A sure-fire victory
Get creative when it comes to using your leftovers in new recipes. Quiches, stir-fries, omelettes, salads, pies… A whole team of customizable dishes is there to help you use up your extra portions. Being a team player is also a great way to avoid wasting food: if you’re hosting and don’t finish everything, invite your guests to leave with a lunch and you’re all set!
