Getting Greener: Stop Food Waste Day
Today marks Stop Food Waste Day, an event all about spreading awareness of food wastage around the world. Around 33% of food produced globally is lost or wasted every year, so we’re focusing this week’s blog on helping you be greener when it comes to your grub.
This is one of the easiest ways to avoid food waste! Make a list at the start of each week and plan your meals across the next few days, including how you will use the food and what to do with the leftovers. Check the fridge and cupboards before you shop too – making sure you don’t double up and use anything that needs to be used before it expires.
Planning out your meals is a great way to make sure you eat well and avoid any last-minute panic buys too – perfect if you’re on a budget!
…And learn to love your freezer! A quiet weekend is a great opportunity to use up any ingredients that are nearing their expiry. Then simply portion out and freeze for future lunches and dinners! You can freeze most things, including bread, vegetables, fruit and more.
Some batch cooking recipe ideas include Bolognese, chilli, hotpot and stew – head to the BBC Good Food website for some more delicious ideas on batch recipes.
