Hi Guys it’s Food Waste Friday.
As I do every Friday I follow my No Waste Tastes Great routine.
You can see that routine here.

My meal plan is already done (click here to see how I meal plan);
It’s pretty straightforward this week. The only items in my fridge that potentially could go to waste are the salad items. Saturday night is usually pizza and salad night – so the salad will be used up tomorrow. Apart from that I think it’s looking fine and dandy.
However I do have some mid-week waste to declare.
About a third of a tub of coleslaw and half a packet of rice.
Not a clean sheet this week, but not a disaster.
Love Food Hate Waste report that an average UK family throw away £60 of wasted food each month.
I estimate my waste this week is around £1. As I said, not perfect, but not a disaster.
Do you know approx. how much in monetary terms you are throwing away each week?
(while we are talking money, did you see this post? Are you up for the challenge?)
