Love Food Hate Waste

Take the pledge – reduce your foodprint

  • Plan it – checking cupboards and fridges, and making a list before going shopping
  • Store it – correct storage, i.e. airtight containers for salads and herbs; the fridge for most fruits (not bananas or pineapples); the freezer for leftovers and bulk purchases.
  • Portion it – know how much to serve; serve less rather than more and encourage the family to ask for seconds if they need more; any leftovers that remain unserved can then be used at a later date.
  • Use it – use the whole food item i.e. stalks; leaves; chicken carcass
  • Love it – love your leftovers. Any leftovers that you know will be used in the next two days should be stored immediately in the fridge in the right kind of container. Anything else should be frozen or preserved.
  • Follow – the national Love Food Hate Waste NZ Facebook page and the new Love Food Hate Waste website for tips, recipes and ideas.

Never thought of adding them to smoothies.

My dogs love them. Nothing is wasted with them around.

I pull the stalk off and only have the green stem and leaves. I eat the rest. hahahaha never get to have any left over.

Hmm. I'm not sure about this. The tops just go in my compost - feed the soil a year later.

This is a bit strange as we eat the whole thing except the leaves.

So do you put the green and all into your Kombucha brew?

Anna!

Bridie Allen - for your next batch!

It's all about the power of cauliflower this week. From stalks to ribs to leaves, there is so much of the cauli we throw away because we don't know how to cook it. Forget boiling, this week we are roasting, ricing and raving about how to eat cauliflower! lovefoodhatewaste.co.nz/8-ways-with-cauliflower/ ... See MoreSee Less
