No Routine = More Food Waste {Food Waste Friday August 17}

Posted Aug 16 2012 9:26pm

One of my biggest pet peeves is throwing away food. I could kick myself every time I dump food down the drain or in the trash: it’s just a complete and total waste! And I hate waste. Which is why I am so thrilled to link up to   The Frugal Girl on her weekly feature where she posts a picture of all the food she had to throw away for the week, and invites other bloggers to do the same. The idea is to feel some accountability – who wants to admit they threw away all that money to the whole world? – to help you avoid throwing away food in the future.

Ugh, this week was bad. In the picture above, you see:

  • a black banana
  • a serving of week-old mashed potatoes
  • a slice of pizza
  • and a container of cooked chicken that was shoved all the way to the back of the fridge. Ugh.

What you don’t see, but was also thrown away:

  • a bag of mixed greens
  • a whole bag of carrots.

Sad, sad. It was really bad this week. My excuse is that we are coming off a week-long staycation, and most of the food went bad during that time. We were out of our normal routine and ate on the fly a lot more, so waste was the inevitable result.

Here’s to a better week next week.

In the meantime, I have an excellent use for citrus peels that you may never have considered before.
