Home-food relations. The full guide.



And here we are again at Sweet blog, the sweetest blog online.

And today, we want to talk about certain connections between your home and your food.

Ultimately, your home is where you store almost all of your food, and it is also the central place where you consume it. And it can be said that for some people, a special connection is developed between their home and their food. Philosophical speaking, a relationship between environment and content, if you want to call it that way.

What food ingredients do you need to keep in your home, how to obtain and store them, what marketing tricks to avoid while conducting your food shopping, and how.

Although the article will talk about pretty general topics related to food and home relations, still, we will try to maintain clarity and coherence to create a proper and helpful reading sequence.

By the way, we did not choose this topic because we suddenly became a food blog.
We will mention again, This is only because of the direct connection that exists between home and food and the fact that your home is the tool that stores most of your food, and therefore, due to our being a home blog - we have a lot to say here as well.

Shall we?



1. Types of products.

Healthy Ones.

As you probably know, there is an inseparable connection between the food you consume and your health.

Therefore, the first type of food we will talk about is the one that will make the best contribution to your health - healthy food products.

Although you probably already know most of them, we will mention a small part of the list:

Dark Green Vegetables
Beans and Lentils
Whole Grains
Extra-virgin olive oil
Lean beef
Fruits and berries
coconut oil
Dark chocolate
Organic Yogurt
Flaxseed, Nuts, and Seeds
Chicken breasts


Home productsHealthy and delicious!

As mentioned above, the contribution of this type of food to your health is critically important. These are food products that will help you maintain good health and high and available energy. Try to get to the point where most of your food purchases will be based primarily on this product.

And as we always take care to be up to date, read this article regarding the hottest trends in healthy food products.



The traditional.

Before describing this type of food, which we call "traditional," we ask you to imagine a classic family dinner in Dallas, Texas, at a conservative American home in the early 1960s.
Suppose we imagine the same description as you then. In that case, an American mother just puts a shepherd's pie on the table next to an excellent lasagna. The family's father scolds the children lightly to sit next to the table while he puts some rice and vegetable salad on their plates. On the table, we will find hot and fresh homemade bread and, next to it, a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice.

Read more here about What Dinner at Home Was Like 60 Years Ago.

What was stated at the beginning of this paragraph is just an example. The guiding principle within it is values such as traditionalism and family.
The ingredients we will call "traditional" will include comforting and homely carbohydrates, which will form the basis of any rich family meal.

a few examples:

macaroni and cheese
turkey shepherd’s pie
chicken and gravy
celery soup
oven pot roast
roast chicken
slow-cooker pork loin
Separated pork chops
chicken and broccoli casserole
chicken potpie

These are just a few examples of the wide variety of comforting and homely / family meals we are talking about.

Although we are fully aware that there is no recommendation for a specific food product for you to purchase so that you can prepare those meals, it is essential to remember that this is a general theoretical idea that does contain that specific recommendation - purchase products that will help you "go back home" and prepare these meals.
The origin of those products will usually come mainly from the vegetable/meat/fish/carbohydrate departments, which also require slow cooking.
Try to think like your grandmother serving you food on Thanksgiving. This will do the trick, and so will you also buy what to buy at the supermarket.

By the way, even if we really try to be specific and recommend certain products, we will not quite succeed because the variety of recipes relevant to this concept is enormous.


Cheat meal (and products).


We finally got to the fun part.

Cheat Meals are Meals in which you quite allow yourself to eat whatever you feel like, regardless of the number of calories or the health quality of that food product, out of an urge to lighten your "serious" diet regime a bit due to the insight that such a curse will help you maintain On a strict diet over time.

Read more here about cheat meals as a concept, and the question popped up pretty instantly - Should You Have Cheat Meals or Cheat Days?

Anyway, what are actually cheat meals is a pretty well-known thing. a few examples:

Ice Cream
Pulled Pork
Cheese Plate
Chicken Wings
Burrito Bowls
French Fries

All of these are just a few examples that can be presented. The products required to prepare those meals will be high in sugar and saturated fat, which, to say the least, will make your arteries less efficient.

The thing about cheat meals, which, as we mentioned above, besides their disadvantages, also have advantages, is that you need to know how to consume them in the right amount. In the links we have attached here, you will also learn how to do it.


Home productsEnjoy your cheat!


Later in the article, when we get to the ideal storage mode for all your food products, we will also teach you the best way to store the cheat components to be used in the best way for you.


2. How to get them?

So once we realize what are the food products that will probably be in your home, the question arises - how do you get them?

This is where the phrase "smart consumerism" comes into play.
Be smart customers!
Although it may seem like a pretty simple thing to you, you still need to understand the best ways for you to do your food shopping And the big retail chains are lurking around every corner with marketing tricks and deals that will leave you with empty pockets and products that you did not plan to buy and do not need.

But do not worry, that's precisely why we're here for you, and that's how you'll do it right.


Tip number one.

Know what you need (strictly)!

Most consumption issues come due to a lack of clarity about what you need. Before! Arriving at the store, make a detailed list of what you need to buy. Once you have made a list, you have to stick to it, no matter how much you really feel like buying a particular product that is not on the list.


Home productsCome prepared with a shopping list


Tip number two.

Pay attention to the fine print.

Attention to the fine print is far more critical than the selling price.
Do not let glittering sails dazzle your eye. Read everything written and not just what they wanted you to read.


Home productsKnowledge is power!


And by the way, there is no need to be a hater and angry at the advertising entities that do this (so perfectly, so to speak). They are just doing their job of getting people to buy shit they do not need at unreasonable costs. Just make sure you too do your job and not be an idiotic consumer.


Tip number three.


Today it is pretty clear that purchasing in cash rather than credit is the preferred option in terms of cost savings.
The reasons for this are many. Do not be lazy. Just click the link right here above to understand why.

Tip number four.

Nightclubs - good.
Customer clubs - not good.

Remember. When you come to buy food, you come for ... purchase food. That's it.

There is no need to join all kinds of dubious customer/friend clubs that offer you all kinds of benefits only if you join them as a member.
Trust us, it will not pay off financially for you in the end.


Home productsCustomer Clubs- You do not really need the

Second, regarding the question of the appropriate storage space. Well, here too, the answer varies as needed.

Regarding the "healthy food products," - try to store them so that they are as accessible as possible for you and your family.
An excellent idea for this could be large fruit bowls in the middle of the living room and so on.
Create a reality where the act of taking fruit or vegetable will be as accessible and straightforward as possible.

The above is relevant to the healthy products you have bought. Regarding the ingredients of the cheat meals, the action required of you is the complete opposite - make sure to store them in inaccessible places. Tall cabinets can be an excellent idea for this.

Finally, one last tip that will help you in your efforts for quality storage for those food products:
