I read an article in the Edmonton Journal that we throw out $27 Billion of food every year. That is really a shame.
If you check your fridge for something leftover when you are planning the next meal or a snack, there is no reason for it. Even vegetables that are getting soft can go in a stock or be blanched and frozen for a future stock. The same goes for bones and meat cuttings.
Personally, I love leftovers. Delicious food I don’t have to prepare? I want some of that.
So, don’t buy food you won’t use. Plan on leftovers and make your life easy. An added benefit, you will save a lot of money.
