no food waste friday

  • At my previous meal prep job, whoever drained the tuna or salmon saves the water/oil for me from the several cans and I pour it over the pups' food as a little treat.
  • When I chopped broccoli at the kitchen, I save the little pieces that fall off onto the cutting board and add them to salads and pasta sauce.
  • We went through our (tiny) pantry and I pulled out everything close to the date and put it in a bin on the counter to use up so it didn't go to waste.

  • I had a zucchini left in the veggie bowl, so I sauteed it in some water mixed with taco seasoning when we made tacos and then chopped it up. It wasn't bad! I'd make it again!
  • We had a single grilled chicken breast and a single slice of flank steak left in the fridge so I sliced them thinly, sauteed it for a few minutes in water and taco seasoning and we made tacos again. (Can you see a pattern? Our go to dinner is tacos, haha.)
  • I pack odds and ends in Kyle's lunches so nothing goes to waste.
  • At my job I worked a few Christmas parties and we were able to bring home some of the catered leftovers. I brought home half a tray of green beans and a large container of slices turkey and mashed potatoes. I'll eat the potatoes, but I'll pack some green beans and turkey in Kyle's lunch.
How have you saved food waste lately? :)
