Love Food Hate Waste new campaign
Love Food Hate Waste is asking the nation to think positively about food and get into new habits following the theme of loving food and wasting less!
Planning ahead, making a shopping list, keeping an eye on portions, using the freezer more and getting creative with leftovers could not only help reduce the amount of food we throw away but save us money too.
This is a great time of year to put some new habits in place. Many people bemoan ‘I must lose weight’ at the beginning of the year, so how about slimming your bin too and reducing your food waste to a svelte size zero?
Portion control is an important factor in reducing food waste. Here at Chez Green we encourage Little Miss Green to take a small amount, finish it and then take more. That way there are no messy plates to scrape.
It means that any leftovers can then be easily incorporated into tomorrow’s meals because they haven’t been smothered in sauce or pushed around the plate a few times.
On the Love Food Hate Waste site you will find menu planners, a shopping list template, learn about portion control and you’ll discover that there really is such a thing as a free lunch!
Why not pop over and have a gander through the pages? Let us know if you find anything especially useful or inspiring and tell us if you have any goals you would like to achieve on the food waste front. We’d love to support you with your own food waste challenges.
