WO(MAN) WITH A PLAN
When it comes to food, you're pretty savvy! You're a shopping list star, a portioning pioneer... a labelling legend. Nice one.
Keep up the good work. If you're up for a challenge, why not try home composting or building a wormery? Or why not try using up your roots and shoots and leaving no peelings to spare! Get your friends round and cook 'em up a #FoodSavvy feast or share your skills and top tips with us at www.foodsavvy.org.uk.
You live a fast life and we ain't gonna be the ones to slow you down. We would recommend that you befriend your freezer, fast. Keep some staples such as bread and pasta sauces in stock so that you're never caught short.
When you've got a minute, why not bulk cook and squirrel away for a busier day. Don't be tempted to do a big shop without knowing that what you'll eat, when. You'll be throwing money to the wind.
Planning for a whole family can be tough stuff. It takes a super hero to know who's in and who's out, what's the new yum or the new yuk. Now's the time to befriend your freezer. Find some down time in your week to bulk cook and freeze for those hectic nights in.
Find it tricky to know how much those cheeky monkey are going to eat? Try some online portioning tools or make enough for lunch tomorrow. If you still find there are too many leftovers, why not have a DIY family project and start composting at home?
Eyes too big for your stomach? Sometimes it's hard to know how much food you'll need for the week... should you get a new bottle of milk because that half empty one is going off tomorrow? How about those two slices of bread left...? And there's a 2 for 1 offer!
Don't let the bargains draw you in if your cupboards are already full, it's unlikely you or your guests will go hungry. Try out our meal planner, leaving a day free for finishing leftovers and get savvy with your date labels; food past its best before is still good to eat! Finally, get super smart with your shopping by trying out apps and taking stock before you shop.
