TOP TEN #NOFOODWASTE TIPS FROM FOODSTANDERS!
lauren Prepared these cute little Spinach stems as I would bok choi—steamed then sautéed with soy sauce and sesame oil—and they turned out delicious! #NoFoodWaste
bewellwitharielle Used leftover beans when making soup for his pizza! DELISH pizza topping and a dose of protein. Win win. #NoFoodWaste
skylightfarm Don’t forget to eat your beet greens! They’re delicious. We see too many people just break these off their beers and toss them. #NoFoodWaste
JenniferEmilson Brekkie today: Creamsicle Smoothie. And don’t waste the orange peels: at the bottom of the trash can (under the bag) they are deodorizer; dried peels work great in brown sugar to keep it from drying out, and in water in a spray bottle- insect repellent! I also see banana bread 😁😊 #NoFoodWaste
gingerandchorizo The diced broccoli stems I used for this fried brown rice (with Korean chili paste and topped with chopped dried shrimp) was the left over from the broccoli pesto I made last night, hate to see it go into the bin! #NoFoodWaste
diginn #NoFoodWaste November! Our Brussels Sprouts are cooked in an orange confit we created from the peels of the oranges we use for our juices, and a touch of coconut oil. This saves 525 lbs of orange peels from going into the compost each week. Recipe in our taste book!
