Get Food on the Table Without Making Such a Mess:

In the Kitchen and on the Planet

It’s surprising, even shocking, to discover that in our country we discard 40% of the food we produce.  A lot of that waste takes place at home.  We throw out leftovers, rotting food and edible food past the expiration date.  Most of us think that we aren’t wasting food and that erroneous belief contributes to our wasteful behavior.  Most households could save $1,500 or more by eliminating food waste.  But how?  It’s not as easy as saying “Don’t discard leftovers.”  Marilyn Paul points to a constructive path to change that includes ways of organizing our kitchens and changing our attitudes towards getting food on the table in general.

  1. Eating meals can be one of the most nourishing parts of our day, yet food preparation is often done on the fly.
  2. When we learn new ways of thinking about, shopping for, preparing and eating food we can derive much more pleasure from our relationship to food.

When we pay more attention to food, we can drastically reduce our food waste, saving money and reducing our negative impact on climate change.”
