One of the biggest problems that affect today’s planet is food waste, but it’s easy to correct. The number one way to reduce food waste is to eat what you buy, simple enough, right?

Here are a few extra tips that you can use to reduce your food waste:

  • Just popping your berries into a glass jar, jars you’re recycling, will help them last 30% longer.
  • Storing your herbs in a glass jar filled with a bit of water will help last longer and stay crisp.
  • And for your greens, using fabric produce bags like this one will keep your salad greens SO crispy!!

Next, let’s tackle Scrappy Cooking. There are so many different chefs out there doing this, and I think it comes from using up your food waste, but it’s also an excellent way to save money!

  • Unless you’re Bugs Bunny, I assume you’re tossing your carrot tops– but no more! Turn it into an awesome tasting pesto for pasta or as a dip! Give those carrots tops a good wash, pop it into a blender with some sunflower seeds, garlic, nutritional yeast, olive oil and give it a few buzzes– so easy!
  • Next, broccoli stems. Nobody ever eats those! They turn it into broccoli stem fried rice, or my favourite broccoli stem fries, which I pop into my air fryer!They turn it into broccoli stem fried rice, or my favourite broccoli stem fries, which I pop into my air fryer!

Recently, the most genius app was added to the AppStore. It’s called Too Good To Go, and they’re on a mission to help you cut down on food waste. They connect local restaurants and grocers and offer end-of-day or week bundles— or even just lunch and dinner! So you’re saving money, supporting a local business, and you’re tackling food waste!
