Preventing Food Waste in Your Own Home
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that Americans throw out over 11 billion pounds of fruit and vegetables each year. In fact, almost 25 percent of all edible food in the United States goes to waste. One simple way to decrease the amount of food you throw out is to find creative ways to use your leftovers. Most foods can be successfully frozen, so if you freeze your leftovers right away, you can eat them any time. This eliminates the need to eat the same thing for days in a row. Label them well and review your inventory before your next shopping trip.
