One of the things that I'm planning on when I retire is to get a better hold on the old grocery budget and address food waste in the MoneyPenny household. Tall order, I know. It seems to me, and I hope that I'm being realistic here, is that the lack of time is my main problem. I usually take the time to plan my grocery spending, but then I run out of weekend before I get everything cooked and prepared. Then I go out to lunch or dinner and something sits and festers in the fridge. I'm sure you are familiar with all of this.
I came across this great graphic by the people at Door to Door Organics and thought you might be interested.
Food Waste Update:
I feel really guilty about my latest entries. The bowl is a roasted cauliflower soup that I made and it didn't taste that good. Instead of trying to fix it, I forgot about it. The tomato actually has fuzz on it. I read that tomatoes should not be put in the fridge, so I didn't. The jar is some pesto that is older than I am.
