    Tips and Tricks

    • As a general rule, try and buy only so much cheese as you can eat in two sittings. This will reduce the need for long cheese storage and reduce the chance of wastage.

    • A great way to use up extra salad greens is to throw them into a smoothie for breakfast – your body will thank you for the extra nutrition and you wont be able to taste the difference.
