My Photo Journal to Reduce Food Waste




It's Tuesday and that means it's leftovers for supper and clean out the fridge day.  I am focusing on reducing our food waste and thought one way to raise our awareness was to take photos of what gets thrown out each week and post it here.  Hopefully, soon, the photos will show nothing.  We'll see how that goes.  




There it is -- some mixed vegetables, some tuna casserole, and a piece of ham.   That's sad.  Really, there is no reason that I should be throwing out this food, but I am because truely while it isn't yet fuzzy, it is all beyond eating.

I can do better than this.  I can!

So, what about you?  Do you have wasted food?  How much do you think you throw out each week?  How often do you clean out your fridge?  Do you plan for leftovers?

  1. I have been working on this lately too! It's been much easier the last 2 weeks since the kids have been out of school and we've been using leftovers for lunch! Glad to see a new blog post from you! I'm not sure how I lost you on fb, but I definitely miss your posts, they helped keep me motivated :( Hope all is well with you and your family!
