This Is A Simple Storage Technique From A Chef That Will Save You From Wasting So Much Food (and Money)

“The most recently bought food should be moved to the back and the food that hasn’t been used should be moved closer to the front,” says Max La Manna, low-waste chef and author of You Can Cook This!.

What is the ‘first in, first out’ technique?

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates between 30–40 percent of the food supply in the country is wasted at the retail and consumer levels.

How The ‘first In, First Out’ Method Helps Mitigate Food Waste

The quickest way to cut down on your food waste is by taking the time to note what you already have.

Use What You Have

A little bit of planning goes a very long way. Cravings are a part of life, but pre-selecting the days you plan to eat out versus the days you want to cook can help ease spending at the store and ensure that all of your food ends up on your plate.

Plan Your Meals

Favor fresh ingredients and products without endless ingredient lists. Briscoe notes that in terms of leftovers or excess foodstuffs, fresh ingredients are much easier to incorporate into soups, stews, and smoothies than processed items.
