This is why you can’t keep your leftovers in aluminum foil



Saran wrap

What can you use instead of aluminum foil? Saran wrap keeps your food fresh and keeps any oxygen from getting in. So, this is a much better way of covering your bowl or plate. If you’re using Tupperware, the size is just as important. If there’s too much room left over, oxygen will still be able to get into your food.


Of course, it’s always better to use a lid than aluminum foil. This will protect your food from getting too much oxygen. It’s also important to get your food cooled down quickly. If the warm food is stored at room temperature for over two hours, bacteria will quickly start to grow. This is especially true for food containing dairy products and meat.


If you’ve cooked way more food than you needed, a freezer is a much better option than the fridge. You can keep your leftovers good for months and it’s easier to make different portions in containers and bags. Don’t forget that after a while, even in the freezer, food can still go bad.
