Eliminating Food Waste in Your Home; Is your Rotting Lettuce staring you down too?

Updated: Feb 25

I combine such random food when I don't want anything to go to waste. But it's nutritional; I get fueled and full - so that's okay.

I also label an "Eat Me First" container in my fridge since my lettuce and zucchini are always the first to get trashed if I don't.

Some research from www.foodprint.org revealed the estimated 125 to 160 billion pounds of food that goes to waste every year; most of it is perfectly edible & nutritious.

Food waste costs our country $218 billion per year.  

Reducing food waste by 15% could provide enough to feed more than 25 million people a year. 

Some of the main drivers for food loss at retail stores include: 

- Overstocked product displays,

-The expectation of cosmetic perfection of fruits, vegetables, and other foods.

-Oversized packages, the availability of prepared food until closing.

- Expired “sell by” dates, damaged goods, outdated seasonal items.

-Over-purchasing of unpopular foods & understaffing. 

Are you surprised? I'm not. 

I recently came across a viral post the other day that said, "I go & grab a new pack of meat at the store or just eat out when I forget to take down something to eat." 

Sadly, alot of our foods are forgotten and expire before taken down from the freezer to prepare. I've been there before, but I am working towards my very best to eliminate food waste. And it starts in my home.

Which foods have you noticed go to waste first in your home?
