Sometimes leftovers can be a real life-saver, especially if you are someone who likes to cook at the beginning of the week and enjoy it for days to come. But, the fact of the matter is that there are just some things that keep better as leftovers than others, and this guide will help you decide what to save and what to compost after you finish eating.
Soup is something that is almost always better than the next day, even though you can obviously eat it right after you make. However, if you want to have something to enjoy as leftovers all week long, soup is the perfect thing to make.
Pasta is something that goes mushy really quickly, so it’s not something you really want to make in advance and keep around for a long time. Though there’s nothing wrong with eating it as leftovers, you’ll never have the best tasting pasta as leftovers.
Whether you made shakshuka for lunch or your favorite brunch dish with eggs, it’s definitely not something you want to keep around after you’ve made it. Eggs don’t keep that well after they’ve been cooked, and reheating them is a pain anyway.
