More About This Subject:
Think about how much stuff you may throw away when it still is goo to eat. Or worse yet what might happen to you if you eat something that has gone past its freshness.
What to do with fish you have thawed and now can't cook it right away? Can you refreeze? Well that all depends on how you let it thaw.
There are many fruits that should not be refrigerated but left on the counter.
Do you leave your loaf of bread on the counter or refrigerate it? Hint here...remember the old bread boxes? Your bread will actually stale faster if you put in the fridge!
Most vegetables keep their freshness 3-5 days so you need to shop more frequently.
Scientists from the U of A and the National Institutes of Health publishes that estimates that American waste 40% of all food produced, bought or sold. That comes out to the equivalent of 1400 calories worth of food per person per day. Now that includes grocery stores that throw out produce that isn't perfect visually to those of us that just don't get around to cooking what we bought or letting those take out boxes sit too long in the fridge.
So consider shopping more in smaller quantities so you don't waste and then visit this site to learn if you are throwing out food that is still good to eat! You might be surprised. I was!
