As gamers, we tend not to focus on human necessities, like eating and sleeping. As a result of this single minded dedication to blipping, we eat a lot of takeout food, and a lot of snacks. With this in mind, here are some tips on how to handle your leftover takeout food.
-TWO HOURS is the maximum amount of time you want to leave something unrefrigerated. ONE single bacterium can turn into 64 at room temperature in 2 hours, and turn into 2 million in seven hours!
-If you arent going to eat something within 2 hours, throw it in the fridge or simply throw it out!
-You should plan on eating leftovers within 48 hours of putting them in the fridge. Refrigeration slows the growth of bacteria, but doesnt stop it. Items left in the fridge for 3 days or longer should be TOSSED OUT without hesitation.
-Make sure you safely reheat your food. Many of the containers that takeout food are served in are not microwave safe, or are made of types of plastic that may leak microscopic particles into your food if heated too greatly. Use a ceramic plate or bowl whenever possible.
