Part one and part two of this year’s holiday season are behind us as you know and we have a little break to get ready for part three and four.
Christmas is nearing and then we go celebrate the arrival of 2016. Until now 2015 has been a disastrous experience with the world on fire, war after war, natural disasters all over the place, I hardly dare to turn on the news these days. Let’s hope 2016 will be a better year for all those affected.
The next couple of weeks ahead are also the time to prepare a wish list to send to Santa, so he can get his inventory in order and start packing.
Health is still a major issue millions among us struggle with every day, so it might be an idea to make a health wish list.
We know that we need to eat healthier, exercise more and adjust portion sizes based on our needs and not on the portion size or serving size indicated on the packing of products. (I read a baffling story about that, more about it later)
A vacuum sealer packer should be on top of that list. A vacuum sealer packer not only aids in preserving food so it last longer, which in return saves you money. A vacuum sealer is the ultimate tool to portion your pre- cooked food and leftovers from parties and gatherings. It is quite normal when we organize fun filled events we tend to over purchase and thus we have leftovers.
Four, seven, four is the rule of thumb for treating leftovers. The first four stands for chilled cooked food. Cooked vegetables start to break down after 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator and should be used within that time frame if un-vacuum packaged.
The seven stands for the maximum of days cooked food should be kept in the fridge. The advice is to toss cooked food anything beyond seven days of storage if left un-vacuum sealed.
The last four means four months, that sounds a lot better, vacuum pack cooked food, store in the freezer and the life span increases from 4 days to 4 months if left un-vacuum sealed.
Vacuum sealing removes the air from the vacuum bag, this keeps the product in mint condition and storing it in the freezer prolongs the shelf life 5x as long as it would be if left un-vacuum sealed.
This phenomenon offers a lot of opportunities.
Not many arguments left not to place a vacuum sealer and package on top of your health wish list.
