“One of my favorite hacks is to use two tupperware lids to help cut cherry tomatoes. You basically put the tomatoes on one lid and put an equally sized lid over the tomatoes (so they are sandwiched between the two lids), and then you run a serrated knife between the two lids in the small space — and it cuts all of the tomatoes in half! Saves a ton of time in the kitchen.”

“A hack that I use on a weekly basis is washing fruits and veggies in my salad spinner bowl. I add a few tablespoons of white vinegar with cold water and let the fruits or veggies soak for 10 minutes. Vinegar has been said to clean the produce, dissolve some of the wax and chemicals on them, and it is a natural disinfectant. After 10 minutes you can pull up the salad spinner basket and use it as a strainer to rinse and dry the produce. All of the dirty water is left behind in the bowl and can be dumped out.”

“One of my favorite tips is to store an open avocado with a piece of onion to prevent it from browning. The sulphur from the onion prevents oxidation of the avocado so it stays green. I also love storing my avos with bananas to help them ripen faster and slow down the ripening of the bananas. They’re a perfect storing combo.”

“I have a little trick that makes homemade hummus extra creamy just like store bought one. The trick is to mix the olive oil with the tahini first for about a minute before adding the chickpeas and the other ingredients. It makes the biggest difference in texture, really.”

“Love quinoa, but don’t have access to a stove? Cook your quinoa in the microwave in just 8 minutes! All you need is quinoa, water, a microwave safe bowl, and a lid! Then all you need to do is microwave (covered), stir, microwave more, and let steam!”

“One of my favorite kitchen hacks is using a teaspoon to peel fresh ginger root. You hold the ginger with one hand and use the spoon with your other hand to gently scrape down the sides. The skin comes right off and doesn’t damage the under layer which is often removed from peeling or using a paring knife and holds so much of the flavor!”
