Food Waste Friday keeps me responsible & accountable for my family’s food & finances…thanks to The Frugal Girl!
WHAT? I have a blog? Apparently so!
I wish I could tell you what I’ve been up to the past month and a half but…well, I have no idea. Life, I guess. No excuses.
But here we go again! Today I combed through my fridge and here’s what I found.
Let me give you a little bit of background. On Monday Rusty & I began a 2-week…I don’t know…”cleanse,” for lack of a better word. We’re re-setting our pallates by avoiding carbs, sugar, and salt for 2 weeks. So this means we eat (unseasoned) meat and vegetables day in and day out. It’s not so terrible, though I would have told you differently on Tuesday.
Anyway, these are the things that wouldn’t be good anymore after 2 weeks, that we couldn’t feed Conlan, or may have already gone bad. I would like to (proudly) note that there isn’t any produce that’s gone bad. I’ve mentioned our produce pile before, but with this eating plan we’ve turned it into a huge produce mountain. And so far, we’ve eaten it all and nothing has gone to waste. Tune in next Friday to see if we get through another week!
[Edit: While I was prepping all of tomorrow’s food this evening I found half of a moldy beet in the fridge. But since I have pretty strong negative feelings about beets, we’re going to call that little happy surprise a food waste win.]
