Food Waste Friday

I've been participating in Food Waste Friday with The Frugal Girl for a while now; I go through our fridge (and freezer) on Friday and toss anything that has gone bad. I also take a look at what needs to be used up so that it does not go bad and try to work that into our meals over the next few days. This has really helped us to throw out less food (and so we're actually buying less because we're using what we've already bought!).

This week I threw out a little bit of bagged salad. Throwing out salad materials has been a pattern lately and is totally my fault in terms of just forgetting to plan to eat it. I really am going to to try to prevent and lettuce from ending up in next week's picture!

Also I threw out a very little bit of chicken meat from tacos. Tacos have been hard for me to eat both this pregnancy and with my daughter...I really need to just hold off on making them until this baby arrives!


  1. My food preferences changed with my pregnancies as well. I think you are doing really well. I am sure I tossed a lot more food when I was pregnant!

  2. I had no idea you were expecting ... congratulations, Beth Anne!!! I believe pregnancy makes you exempt from having food waste guilt. ;)

    I had a little food waste this week, too. A few bananas and a couple slices of cheese. Bananas never go bad in the winter, and I guess it's because I bake banana walnut bread constantly. With spring here, the SMELL of that bread makes me ill. It's a winter thing, I guess, so less banana purchases for us! And the cheese??? One of these days I will learn not to buy cheese in bulk at Costco. Plans for using it up never happen fast enough! :)

    Hope today is a good one for you. Take care!
