5 Small Changes To Your Kitchen That Could Change Your Life
A kitchen is often the heart of a home. We do a lot in this room. We eat, we drink, and we entertain our guests. We help the kids with their homework, feed the pets, do the laundry, and cook. We might watch TV, prepare a packed lunch, and put away our groceries. Every kitchen needs to be hardwearing. After all, the whole family is in there every single day. As the kitchen is such an essential space, is it possible to use it to make changes to your lifestyle?
If you want to become more budget-conscious and frugal, then the kitchen is the perfect place to start. Buy a handful of microwaveable containers, and you can begin batch cooking to save a fortune on your energy bills. It costs virtually no more to cook up 8 portions than it does to cook 4. Put 4 portions into pots and pop in the freezer when cooled. When you’re ready for a meal in a hurry, microwave each portion and dinner is served in under ten minutes.
If you love the idea of getting into healthy teas and away from caffeine this winter, then it’s time to try a boiling water tap. These high quality kitchen taps save energy too because it tops up the heat with a few seconds boil every so often. A standard plug-in kettle can take ages to boil and gobbles up the electric too! With a boiling water tap, your tea is only seconds away from perfection. The water is filtered, and the tea tastes amazing. Good health in a cup.
Reduce The Risk Of Pests
Food waste is a big problem, especially in built-up areas. Even with weekly collections, the odours can be quite overpowering. Rodents, insects, and flies are attracted to the containers, and can easily nibble through plastic bags to get to it. Kitchens have to be thoroughly cleaned every day as crumbs and spills can attract these pests. With an insinkerator, you’re reducing the waste left from cooking. It’s an easy and hygienic way to clean up from every meal.
Make Fresh Food Your Go-To Snack
Fridges and freezers are designed to preserve fresh food. The latest models do it even better than before. Salad crisper compartments are now better at keeping fresh food healthy and nutritious for longer. This helps you store your prepared food too. As for the freezer? Giant freezers can store more frozen veggies than ever. When they’re fresh-frozen, they retain more nutrients than the non-frozen produce you might buy. Best of all, they last for months so you’ll reduce food waste. Now there is no excuse to skip veggies with every meal.
More Quality Time With The Kids
Did you know that a simple table in the kitchen or dining room could help you spend more quality time with the kids? Eating on the run, or on your lap in front of TV means you’re not able to talk to each other over a meal. If you’re looking for the perfect way to ensure you’re up to date on your child’s day, dress the table for dinner.
