Avoid The Microwave For More Appealing Leftovers

One of the best ways to save money on food is to eat everything you prepare rather than trashing your leftovers and moving on. The drawback to eating the archives is that most of the time they won’t taste as good as they did the first time. Microwaves and toaster ovens tend to dry food out and alter its texture.

Girls Just Wanna Have Funds suggests steaming your food to get it tasting its best in round two. Take a pasta strainer and a stock pot the strainer fits into, then add about a cup of water into the pot. Boil the water and plop your food in the strainer, letting the steam reheat your grub without sapping it of moisture.

Although the idea isn’t feasible at work, it’s a reasonable way to stretch out a home-cooked meal for a couple days at the dinner table.
