I don’t know about you but I’ve always struggled with the challenge of preparing a fresh, healthy meal after a long day at work. Even cooking in bulk ahead of time and storing food in the fridge in air-tight containers didn’t work as a strategy. I tried this but found my carefully prepared food turned from yummy to yucky with wilted greens, soggy fruit and curries losing their flavour over the course of the week.
Alas, the Saturday morning fridge clean-up became a routine. Leftovers from my well-intentioned weekly fresh food shop had to be dispatched – soggy fur-covered berries, brown avocados and mouldy cheese. Bad for the environment and for my wallet.
However, a couple of weeks ago all of that changed for me. I had the privilege of organising the Australian launch of Sunbeam’s FoodSaver®Fresh, an innovative food storage device that extends the life of fresh food. I got to test-drive this unit in my own kitchen and to say my approach to food preparation has been revolutionised is no understatement!
FoodSaver®Fresh uses a unique vacuum sealing technology that removes all air from the specially designed, BPA-free, reusable containers and bags. Food stays as tasty as the moment you cooked it and even better, the longevity of fresh food (like salad veges and even avocadoes) is more than doubled. And the unit, a discreet addition to my kitchen benchtop, is soooo easy to use…just the touch of a button and it’s done!
So now I’m back to bulk cooking with a vengeance – blitzing the week night meal dilemma and even making a sustainable habit of taking pre-prepared, fresh lunches to work.
And you don’t have to take my word for it. The launch went off a treat with several high profile food and lifestyle bloggers now singing the praises of Sunbeam’s FoodSaver®Fresh including Deb Carr of www.sydneychic.com.au, Nicole Avery of www.planningwithkids.com , Jac Bowie on Facebook, and Natalia from www.chicontherun.com.
We all know Christmas is a big time for food waste. Perhaps this year you can save yourself (or someone you know) time, money and festive season stress with a FoodSaver®Fresh device?
