Stop Wasting...Get it All Out!

Stop Wasting…Get it All Out!

It seems so simple…so “duh!” but yet I don’t think most of us really realize how much we waste by not getting everything out. Whether it’s mustard in the bottle, toothpaste in the tube, or whatever. When I started cutting, scraping, shaking and slicing, I was shocked at how much was still in those containers! [...]

Save the Scraps: Browning Bananas

Save the Scraps: Browning Bananas

Let me tell you something about Little Dude…he eats a lot of bananas. I almost always buy bananas and apples. Gracia happily munches away on apples, while Little Dude chooses bananas. So, since he’s been here, we have a lot fewer bananas that make it to the browning stage. But still sometimes we get those [...]

Food Waste Friday – New Year and Less Waste…

…well that’s the plan at least. At the end of December Cameron and I cleaned out our fridge and sadly had to toss a lot of food. This week I threw out: Part of a loaf of french bread that was moldy. And I should mention I picked off some crust of some other bread [...]

  This week I threw out: Cooked brown rice, that went bad. 1 ear of corn on the cob that went bad. Some sprouts, only because I dropped my sprout jar and it broke and I didn’t want to risk eating glass pieces with my sprouts. 2 small bags of veggies that I had planned [...]

    If the celery is getting limp, cut the bottom off and put it in a cup of water in your fridge to help liven it back up. Storing celery wrapped in aluminum foil in your fridge also helps it last longer. Cut them up and eat as a crunchy snack. Spread peanut butter on them [...]

Food Waste Friday & Milk Tip

Food Waste Friday & Milk Tip

I have to get this food waste under control. I want to get a handle on it simply because it’s wasteful of our grocery money and not being a good steward, but now I have an extra motivation. Since we’re wanting to go into foreign missions, we’ll more than likely be in a third world [...]

Gotta Make Use of those Leftovers!

Gotta Make Use of those Leftovers!

It seems like eating up all or even most of our leftovers is such a battle for me. I know that’s truly a 1st world problem if I ever saw one! I’m grateful I’ve never lacked the food and nutrition my body needs! Anyways…back to leftovers, when I do successfully come up with ways to [...]

Food Waste Friday and Lots of it!

Ready to hear what I wasted? Salsa, beans that I apparently didn’t cook long enough, some of them were still hard, potatoes, bacon that was supposed to flavor the hard beans, cilantro, 2 tomatoes and some tangerine slices. And that’s just what’s pictured, I threw some other things out earlier in the week. I did [...]

Food Waste Friday & Good News!

Food Waste Friday & Good News!

This week I’m tossing: Leftover smoothie – I usually put that into popsicle molds for a healthy snack for Gracia, but my mold was full at the time. A whole batch of German potato salad – I feel bad about this. The potatoes didn’t quite get soft enough and I tried using apple cider vinegar [...]
