After years of wasting what could have fed a small Ethiopian village, we are attempting to reduce our food waste. I will post a photo each week of our food waste and I will link up with Food Waste Friday over at The Frugal Girl.
This is our first week of actually tracking our food waste. It wasn’t a bad week, but this could have been avoided. We lost a bundle of fresh organic cilantro. It doesn’t look half bad in the picture, but trust me, it was starting to get slimy. No bueno.
I don’t know why I let it get to this point, cilantro can be saved in the freezer. I originally bought the cilantro for fish tacos, which were a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I salvaged the last little bit I could and topped a baked potato with it.
How did your food waste go this week?
