Avoid Food Waste By Following These Simple Guidelines – LifeSavvy
From stock checks to finding foods that flow, learn about the ways you can decrease the number of fresh foods that end up in the trash bin.
Ever purge through the fridge to find gross fuzzies, and crusty condiments piled up from last summer? Hey, it happens, but we’re here to tell you there are several ways to prevent food waste and save money.
Keep Tabs on Your Fridge and Pantry
Putting an end to wasting food all starts with a weekly fridge and pantry stock check.
Before planning your meals for the week, take a look at some of the foods you already have. Use up that half pound of green beans for a side dish before they turn slimy. Plan on using up that box of pasta and make a cream-based sauce before that half-and-half spoils, too.
Do a stock check once per week, before perusing your recipe book. Use up foods you already have and create meals using those foods, and be sure to jot down notes along the way.
