Samsung America offers simple tips with innovative appliance features to keep food fresh and refrigerators organized as consumers incorporate the new guidelines into their lifestyle:
- Planning makes perfect:
It is hard enough deciding what to make for dinner and making it healthy can be even more difficult. Stock your recipe box with recipes that feature healthy ingredients and plan your meals in advance to make grocery shopping a breeze while saving time and money. Some experts even recommend primarily sticking to the outside perimeter of the grocery store to avoid temptations from the junk food aisles.
- Know your ideal humidity:
Did you know leafy greens crave high humidity while crisp fruits need low humidity for maximum freshness? To make perishable items last, make use of the crisper drawers and keep your refrigerator at its appropriate humidity.
- Have a clear view:
It is much easier to grab a healthy snack when it is easy to see. When you place your cut/prepared fruits and vegetables in an easily accessible location, it keeps the food top-of-mind as a great choice when looking for a quick snack.
- Refrigerate the right foods:
Some fruits and vegetables are better off stored at room temperature. Foods like bananas, lemons, limes, tomatoes, onions and potatoes can experience texture and taste changes when stored in colder temperatures.
- Make snacking healthy:
Part of eating healthy is stocking the kitchen with easy to grab snacks – for grown-ups and kids. Samsung’s Four-Door French Door Refrigerator includes a counter height FlexZone Drawer that is an independent, mid drawer perfect for housing healthy snacks like low-fat yogurt and 100% juice boxes at a height that is easy for kids to access. As a bonus, to keep meats and fish fresh until you’re ready to prepare, the drawer features a special temperature-controlled section specifically for these items that stays at the ideal 29 F for maximum freshness.
