#1 Whole-grain Flour
By now, most of us are aware that other types of flour are healthier for us than the normal all-purpose white flour. However, just because the whole grain one is better and we’ve switched to it, that doesn’t mean that the changes stop there. These types of flours are higher in germ and bran than the normal wheat ones, and this means that they contain more natural oils!
You should avoid storing them at room temperature as they can spoil faster. You should keep them in the freezer after you open them, in an airtight container, so you can increase their shelf life!
#2 Opened red wine
You may think we are committing blasphemy by telling you to refrigerate red wine after opening it, but red wine lovers, hear us out! It’s actually something you should avoid leaving out in the open overnight because you are risking it getting oxidized and losing its properties and taste. After you have opened a bottle of red and drank as much as you want, you should re-cork the bottle and stash it in the fridge, not on your counter!
Believe us, this is how it will stay fresh for the next day as well, and you won’t have to begrudgingly use that very good wine for a sauce because you cannot drink it anymore.
