10 brilliant ways to reduce food wastage

Food wastage not only produces wastage of nutrients that food contains but also wastage of money and energy and when you waste food you also insult the God blessings. Rotten food that you throw outside from your house produces methane. Methane is 10 times more harmful than carbon dioxide.

There are many ways to reduce food waste, but one of most common and easy way through which you may save your meal for a long time is, use your fridge. Here are some ways; you can reduce the amount of edible food that ends up in your bin.

Don’t buy in bulk

There are many things which you don’t have to buy in bulk because after some days they become rotten and you have to throw them out from your house. Fruit and veggies are become rotten and produce a smell after three to four days. We all normally buy these things in bulk because buy these things from bulk can save our money. If you don’t have a very big family or many children to feed their mouth then stay away from buying an item in bulk. Buy as many fruits and vegetables as possible to finish in three to four days. If you buy more, they get to spoil and you may not use them.

Store meal properly

It is obvious that sometimes the small quantity of your meal is left which you have to store properly. Don’t put your leftover in the fridge straightaway without chilling. Because when you put the hot meal in your fridge it increases your fridge temperature, which is not great. You don’t need to leave your leftover for overnight for chilling, leaving them for a short time as it comes in room temperature. Second thing freeze your meal separately in small boxes like if you want to freeze curry and rice put them in the separate container and then put them in a fridge. If you don’t do this, the chances of meal worsen are may increase.

store meal properly

First come, first eat

Try to eat the things which are already present in your fridge and pantry. It’s not good to buy things which you already have in your fridge and pantry. It is not only wastage of money, but also wastage of food. If you continuously add items in your pantry and avoid items which already present in your pantry, the avoided items become spoiled and get rotten especially bread, brown rice, black beans, and meat. You need to rotate items in your pantry. Don’t leave the half container in your fridge, first finish half container then go for buying more milk.

Grow your own

Make your own garden and grow your own fruit, veggies, and herbs. It also supports you financially. If you start growing food in your house, you don’t want to buy in bulk. It reduces the chances of food wastage because you can easily take the needed fresh items from your garden and use them at a time. Nothing goes to waste. Canning is also a beneficial method like you can preserve your excess garden products in a form of pickle and stock and use them when you need. You can easily preserve them in a form of pickle and stock for months.

Don’t overstuff your freezer

Most of the ladies complain that: they store meal in freezer or fridge but they still get rotten. The main reason behind this disaster is they overstuff their fridge and freezer. When you overstuff your fridge and freezer cold air is not flow in it, due to not adequate space. If space in small, heat and warmth does not leave your fridge and the temperature of your fridge become inconsistent continuously. So first you need to clean your freezer and fridge properly then place the meal in it but in a range. Don’t overstuff your freezer and try to clean your freezer and fridge at least after one month.

don't over stuffed your freezer

Donate extra food

Much food remains when you host any big event or party. Don’t full your freezer with this food, Try to make a habit to donate extra food. Not donate all food but some food which you feel extra and due to this, your freezer become over stuff. It’s tough to find a specific person who deserves your donation but you can easily find food banks near you. Donate the meal to them. In this way, you not only save yourself from food wastage but also the source of removing hunger of someone which is a blessing.

Understand what Expiration Date is

Turns out those expiry dates don’t generally need to do with food well-being; rather, they’re typically producers’ recommendations for top quality. If you store food in the proper place or put them in the refrigerator, most nourishments (even meat) remain new a few days past the “utilization by” date. You check the food, if a food looks, smells, and tastes fine and fresh, then it surely fine and you can eat it after the expiry date. On the other hand, if any of this component is missing, then you have to take it seriously and the only option remains is “waste that food”.

Pickling

Cucumber, meat, peppers and a few vegetables might be protected by pickling. This strategy includes plunging the sustenance in some fluid synthetic that keeps the development of microorganism life forms yet keeps up edibility of the nourishment. The safeguarding fluids utilized are vinegar, brine, liquor and some different oils. This procedure is known as synthetic pickling. The other method for pickling is by maturation or you can also say that it is called fermentation pickling. In this processed food itself produce preservation agent.

Picklong

Compost your leftover

The kitchen garden is now in fashion. If you want to reduce your food wastage, then sow your leftover in your kitchen garden. Put potato peels and withered veggies to great use by tossing them in your garden as a supplement rich manure. You can also take little pots, fill them with soil and sow your leftover in it. Take them to care properly and after some time enjoy your home grow veggies, fruits, herbs etc. In fact, you can do this with nuts peel and see what you get.

7 most common and awful makeup mistakes

Makeup may help you to look more stunning and attractive but only when you know the right way. But if you do not know how to do makeup properly then it destroys your good looks fully. It happens with everyone. Sometimes when we do makeup we apply eyeliner wrong, forget to do lip lining, use too much concealer, don’t blend eye makeup or anything that makes us horrible. Besides this, sometimes we make our self-looks much older than our age due to mistakes that we made during doing makeup.

Well, today I am here to tell you about that mistake due to which we suffer from all these bad conditions. Read it and try to ignore the worst mistake and improve your makeup skills.

Store makeup on wrong place

store makeup at wrong place

Most of you are a habit to store makeup products in-store or in the room temperature which is not a good thing and it is your one of the big mistake. Not all but many beauty products contain natural oils and waxes. In summer they start destroying because of temperature. In summer temperature is high and products start melting that contains waxes especially lipsticks, creams, nail polish.

Try to store makeup product in the fridge at least in summer or in hot weather for their long life. Makeup products work more efficiently and perfectly when you store them in a cool place. A lot of products is also tested to hold up at room temperature but not all products. When these products are cold they will help seal up your pores and feel that much more amazing then it’s hot.

Plucking eyebrows improperly

plucking eyebrowa

The shape of your eyebrows is really mattered. If the shape of your eyebrows is very thin and curvy, you look elder and clever. Normally, many of you make your eyebrows very thin when you going to pluck one stray may lead you to the next until the eyebrows are reduced to two thin lines. After that, the only thing you can do is waiting. Wait until they grow back again completely.

During this time if you want to go anywhere then you can use an eyebrow pencil. Try to choose a correct color because filling in your brows make a huge difference in your face shape, frame your eyes and it gathers the whole look together. If your eyebrows are already thin, then you can also use the pencil to make it thick according to your face cut and shape.

Matching foundation on the back of your hand

matching foundation on wrong place

Selecting foundation according to your face color is the bit tricky. Many women don’t even get the foundation that matches with their skin or they don’t recognize which is good for them. You usually match foundation on the back of our hand which is not right. Because there is a huge difference between your hand and face skin type and color. Match foundation color on your neck and outside of your cheeks because you want the foundation for your face and neck not for your hands.

Try to go with one or two-tone darker than your face. In Asia, women like to put the foundation in lighter tune because they think they look fair in it. But when you use lighter tone your skin become grey after some time. Choose a darker tone foundation. Select three or four tones and take a drop from each foundation on your neck or cheeks. Compare each spot and pick the one that disappears on your skin.

Apply too much foundation

Basic concept which you listen for many years that applying the thick layer of foundation on your face is helping you to cover fine lines, acne, uneven tone and many other problems. It is true up to some extent but there is a disadvantage which is if you apply too much foundation on your face you look way older than your age. Apply foundation in small quantity.

There is no need to apply layers of foundation on your face. The thing which is needed is to blend it perfectly. If you do not blend it well, it will look like you wear a mask and the lines which you want to hide become more prominent. The blending is also essential because if you do not blend it well cracks start showing on your foundation layer which seems worse. For blending take proper brushes and make sure to replace old brushes and wedges regularly.

Use eyelashes curler after mascara

use eyelashes curler

Eyelashes curler is a tool through which you can beautify your lashes. It provides beautiful curls to your lashes. The proper way to use lashes curler is before applying mascara. If you want to get perfect curls, then go at the base of the lashes to create perfect curls. If you use after applying mascara, it ruins everything. If you want to use it after mascara, then first wait few minutes until mascara gets dry. Check with the fingertip, if mascara gets dry then use lashes curler.

Use dark lipsticks

Try to select and apply lipstick wisely. If you use dark colors, it makes your lips look thinner than they are and also you appear older. If you use dull color, it dulls your overall look which looks boring. Lipstick color may destroy your appearance if the colors you wear are not in fashion. You can go with lip-glosses to produce the most natural, youthful and fresh look possible. Also never use the dark lip liner because dark lip color won’t stray beyond the boundaries so lip liner is unnecessary.

If you want that your lipstick stays long on your lips so don’t apply on your naked lips. Before applying lip color dab your lips with primer or Vaseline. Let it soak for a while, in this time you complete your routine makeup. After 5 to 7 minutes, apply lipstick. When you do this, your lipstick stays long and looks much more smooth and even.

Sleep with makeup

sleep with makup

The worst mistake which you can do with your face is not too off your makeup and wash your face before going to bed for sleep. Don’t look at the clock, no worry if clock show you 3 am. Always take a time to remove your makeup. If you don’t do this, you must wake up with panda eyes and joker looks. Makeup blocks your pores and doesn’t let them remove dead skin cells which causes irritation.

After washing your face with water dry your face with the towel. Take a few drops of cleanser and rub on your face slowly, in the circular motion. It helps to remove makeup particles from your pores and open your pores to let your skin breath finely.
