Food Hacks That Are Guaranteed To Make Your Life Easier

Food is a part of everyone's life. Whether you love food, or simply eat it to keep surviving, there is a food hack out there for you. These tips run across dishes and offerings from all sorts of cuisines, so whether it's Jell-O or tacos or burgers, we've got a tip for you!


#1 Put your leftover pizza in a pan to reheat, instead of the microwave.

The bottom will get crispy while your toppings on top get nice and melty. A microwave doesn’t even come close.


#2 Section ground meat before freezing

You can break off as much as you need without defrosting the whole package.

#3 Make limp celery crisp again

Trim the top and bottom of the celery (cut it off of the root if it is still attached) and drop the stalks upright into a pitcher or jar of ice-cold water to re-crisp. You can also store celery like this. The ice water trick also works on tired broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, lettuce, and spinach.

#4 Juicing a Lemon

There's nothing like a freshly squeezed glass of lemonade in the hot summer months. That being said, squeezing a lemon can prove to be a pretty daunting task. To avoid a mess or accidentally squirting juice in your eye (we've all done it), simple place half a lemon in between a pair of tongs and squeeze. This will allow you to get the most juice out of your fruit and enjoy a fresh delicious beverage at the same time.


#5 Use an egg slicer to slice mushrooms (or strawberries)

If you put your favorite little fungi through an egg slicer, they’ll come out perfect as a pizza topping!
