Reduce Your Food Waste
It's day 8 of the Healthy Recipe Toolbox Challenge.
70% of Americans think that global warming is a serious threat, and 68% are interested in how they can help their environment. One way is through sustainability.
The food service industry is already moving toward sustainability, and you can too. When you shop for groceries and cook at home, opt for:
- Using uncommon parts of plants
- Using organic ingredients
- Buying local food
For example, did you know instead of throwing them away, you can use beet greens in smoothies, salads, or soups? You can even cook with pumpkin leaves (muboora). Not only does this help reduce food waste, it naturally incorporates more plant-based foods into your diet.
Let us know how you're doing in the challenge here, our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram.
