15 foods you've been eating wrong this whole time
When you were little someone took the time to teach you how to eat: chew each bite 3 times for good digestion; broccoli will help you grow big and strong; and, perhaps everyone’s least favorite meal time rule — dessert comes after dinner. Of course, by now you might think you’ve mastered the art of enjoying a good meal, but is that really true?
Are you a culinary pro or could you still have more to learn? In honor of the pursuit of knowledge, here are 15 foods we’ve been eating wrong all our lives. Share this article on Facebook to surprise your friends!
#1 My husband is using our baby monitor to keep an eye on the temperature of his smoker while he works.
#2 To squeeze twice as much juice from lemons or limes, put them in your microwave for 10 seconds.
#3 It’s quite difficult to peel your ginger with a knife, that’s why use a spoon. Spoon your ginger and you’ll be left with a beautiful piece of peeled ginger and almost zero waste.
#4 To peel garlic, you don’t need to cut it in pieces. Just smash it on a cutting board with the blade of your knife. Believe me, it’s much faster and more exciting.
#5 Save your bananas! Wrap the tops in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and they will last up to 5 days longer! Useful if you only grocery shop on the weekends or just like to eat your bananas a little greener.
#6 Never waste a precious drop of your Nutella again. Instead, pour warm milk into the dregs of the jar to create Nutella hot chocolate and happiness.
#7 After cutting into a cake, use toothpicks to cover the exposed portion with a piece of bread to keep a cake nice and soft.
#8 Use a colander to prepare the remaining bits of cereal from a box/bag.
#9 Prevent tomatoes from rotting quickly by putting them upside down.
#10 Dental floss can perfectly cut soft solids
#11 The bottom of J.Lohr (as well as any similar shaped wine bottle) makes a great press for homemade ravioli.
#12 Try the lemon method under the salmon to avoid burning your fish
#13 Store your fruit salad in a strainer inside a larger bowl. It keeps the fruit above the juices, and you can just take the strainer out and dump the juice out of the bowl into a glass! every so often. The fruit stays fresh much longer!
#14 Keep some white grapes in the freezer. You can use them as ice cubes in your white wine, and when you finish, you get to eat a wine-infused grape!
#15 This is how to make Baby Yoda cookies!
