It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great,
This post probably isn’t going where you think it is from the title.
We’re not going to be talking dieting. No way Jose. But there is a slight double meaning in the title – as it will be the first time I have uploaded a video of my fridge – so you can ‘watch’. (Fridge Vlogs, how will I top that going forward? *said with immense British sarcasm*).
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
– it’s actually shot on Thursday but you’ll get the gist.
So, what is today’s post about?
Being Mindful. That’s this weeks theme. I posted about remembering to be mindful on Tuesday and it started the cogs whirring.
Mindfulness is a practice, that can be incorporated into all aspects of a simple deliberate life.
Take my fridge for example.
On the whole (but hey no-ones perfect 24/7) I know what is in my fridge, to which dishes the items are headed, and what I am going to replenish the fridge with, as part of my Friday routine.
I’m paying attention to what I buy, what I use and what I eat.
Paying attention works when looking to limit food waste, reduce grocery spend, and ultimately when you want to watch what you eat.
Thanks to everyone who commented last Friday with suggestions on how to use up the items in my chaotic fridge. Admittedly last week wasn’t a great example of being mindful and paying attention.
As always I love to hear what you have to say on the subject of reducing waste. Please do talk to me. If I can shoot a video (very scary), maybe you can post a comment?
And no, I haven’t forgotten – here’s my food waste photo. A couple of tablespoons of cream, yoghurt and salsa. Bad girl.
How’s your Friday fridge looking? Packed to the rafters or nice and bare, please share.
Thanks as always to Kristen, The Frugal Girl, (the founder of Food Waste Friday and the inspiration behind No Waste Tastes Great)…Don’t forget to head on over to her’s to link up your Food Waste Friday post!
