- 1. Using one cut board for all ingredients
How many cut board do you have in the kitchen? You should have at least two cut boards. Use one cut board to cut or slice meat, chicken, and any dairy product such as cheese and use the other one for fruit and vegetable. Using one cut board for all ingredients will make your food contaminated.
- 2. Store all ingredients in the fridge
Do not store all of the ingredients in the fridge. Some ingredients like lemon, banana, flour, potato, and oil should store out of the fridge in the cool dry place with minimum light. It is also important for you to always wash the fruit and vegetable to rinse the pesticide. While the dry seasoning should be store in locked container to keep it fresh.
