CHOP, CHOP: Karina’s Cooking Tip!



If you are planning to host a Lunch or Dinner Party, or you simply want to save time, you can prep all the Food the night before. All you need to do is Chop, Dice, Slice or Grate all your Vegetables and Meat the night before, then keep refrigerated!

If you are cooking with Potatoes, after you have peeled and prepped your Potatoes, you should place in a bowl of water in the refrigerator, in order to prevent it from turning brown! Air causes a chemical reaction to occur with the peeled potatoes, which turns them brown! This tip also applies to Sweet Potatoes and other Vegetables, which may turn brown once exposed to air after peeling!

Ensure you cover all the prepped Vegetables and Meat with Cling Wrap, then keep refrigerated! This tip will also save you a Tone of Time if you would like to make a Healthy Stir Fry or other great meal, on a week night for dinner!

So, what are you waiting for? Get Chopping! CHOP, CHOP!

      I’m glad you like the tip, Libby!

      The water would definitely work for vegetables that are prone to oxidation.

      You’re better off preserving the colour of fruits prone to oxidation, such as: apples, bananas, pears, peaches and avocados; with lemon juice. This way, the fruit keeps its natural flavour better, whilst the lemon juice will act as a powerful immunity booster and will also fight infection (if anyone were to have a cold).

      Vegetables would rather be left in water, since vegetables are not as sweet as fruit. The lemon juice will compliment the fruit better than would water. Water may turn the fruit bland.

      It’s soo great you love to cook! Well done Libby!
      Prepping food the day before can save you time for when you cook the day after 🙂
