Storing food and perishables is a very difficult thing to do. Hopefully you have never had to experince this before but it does get time consuming and expensive at times depending on the type of storage you are doing. Taking the time to make sure your food and perishable things are wrapped up and placed in a manner that is going to preserve them is very important. Here are 5 tips to help you make sure that you are going to get the most out of the storage of whatever items you have.
Tip number 1 – Always use plastic baggies.
The biggest thing that is going to destroy perishable items is oxygen. Oxygen slowly deteriorates things and breaks them down at a particle level. That is why you cannot store supplements or liquid capsules for a long time without them breaking apart. The more surface area a specific type of supplement or nutritional item, the more it will break down quickly. This doesn’t help you and your diet routine if these things keep breaking down. What I like to do is store all of my workout gear and equipment with my supplements and non-perishable nutritional items inside a climate controlled area. And since I like to do intense workouts, it is perfect for my Crossfit equipment and my crossfit nutrition. This helps out a lot. My good friend Peter Johnson tough me a lot about keeping things stored correctly so that you can work out like a pro.
Tip number 2 – Get an air conditioned or climate controlled unit.
The best thing you can do to preserve items is to get a climate controlled area. Whether this is a storage unit or someone’s house, make sure that wherever you put your things that it is at least room temperature or a little cooler. Excessive heat speeds up the process of rot and deterioration. Your best bet is to get more of a colder area. You also want to consider getting a place where it isn’t too cold as well. If you go somewhere like northern Michigan where it is cold all of the time, that is not good. You want to find a happy medium between hot and cold but avoid the warm weather as much as possible.
Have a great time storing your perishable is the best way possible!
