Kitchen Cheat Sheet

This infographic is created for anyone who loves to cook. A collection of all the bits of information you need but can never find in one place. Metric conversions for when you have an old recipe. Meat cut charts – so you know which piece of meat is from which part. Meat roasting times: how many times have you bought a chicken and had no idea how long to cook it for? Storing food in the fridge and the freezer and cooking grains. The best part is you can download handy A4 print sized sheets to stick on the fridge for reference – also great for teaching kids how to cook.

Does Being Organic Pay Back?

As the saying goes, you are what you eat. But is this really the case? How do we know what we eat? Reading labels on products before putting them into our shopping carts is an absolute must. Nowadays, people are increasingly aware of what they eat and they attach more and more importance to the composition of their meals.

Sustainable lifestyle begins with changing your eating habits. Buying organic products is the first step on your way to going green. Instead of making a major upheaval, the best way to start is by making minor changes. You are more likely to succeed if you give yourself the time to get used to new products and a new way of preparing meals.

Organic produce and products are usually slightly more expensive, but switching to organic food doesn’t have to be detrimental to your household budget. Pay close attention to the prices, take advantage of discounts and special offers.
