#LifehackMonday : Food Hacks

With all the amazing food that I’ve been seeing from Mamachef Jozi & of course, The Non Adventures of a SAHM, I was also inspired to give my two cents worth on food. Don’t expect me to be giving you recipes and the like (because I can’t!), but I will send five food hacks your way!

Lifehack #1

Wet your fingers & then go fishing

Lol, okay not literally go fishing… When you crack an egg, sometimes annoying bits of eggshells get into your bowl as well. Instead of chasing the rogue egg shells around the bowl, just wet your fingers and then dip them in. The rogue shells will be attracted to your finger.

Lifehack #2

DIY Cooking Spray

1 part oil + 5 parts water + squirt bottle = COOKING SPRAY .. Yeppeee!

Lifehack #3

How to tell if your avocado is ripe


Lifehack #4

Oreo Milk Lollies

Break Oreos into milk and pour them into an ice cube container. Place them in the freezer and voila, you have Oreo cookie milk lollies!

Lifehack #5

How to determine if an egg is fresh

  • Very fresh – a very fresh egg will sink to the bottom and lay on its side
  • 2 weeks old – egg will lie at the bottom but the fat end of the egg will rise up slightly
  • 3 week old egg – balanced on the pointy end with the fat end sticking up
  • Bad eggs – Old eggs will float
