SALLYHATESWING, aka Sarah Schmid, deals with the topic of food waste in her beautiful spread for LATEST magazine. LATEST magazine writes : “When it comes to food and fashion, the first things that come to mind are anorexia and eating disorders in general. Today, we would instead like to talk about leftovers and about a consumerist society which makes us feel like we always have to keep our refrigerators (like the wardrobe or the house) full of, often superfluous, food. Obviously, too much food leads to leftovers which are simply thrown away, without a second thought.
In Italy, it has been estimated that, during the lockdown, 41% of people reduced their food waste.
This is also thanks to the increased amount of time at our disposal which allows people to think more before buying. It is true that much of the waste comes from catering and industries, but it does not mean (as usual) that the individual has no responsibility. We can all make small changes, and together make them bigger. How can we reduce waste at home then? Especially if you don’t have much time to go to small shops to buy what you need every day or almost every day?
We should write a meal plan and choose a day of the week for grocery shopping. Let’s write a list of what we would like to eat each week. We have to consider all meals from breakfast to dinner. We also have to consider the days when we already plan on eating at a restaurant so that we don’t buy anything for those meals. We should write a shopping list with everything we need and then go and buy only what is on the list. We can also limit what we buy, if we want, to long-lasting foods.
At home, to help cope with various time-consuming commitments, cook what you can and store it in the refrigerator or freezer. Look at the weekly list every day to see if you need to defrost anything for the next day. These simple steps will help us to reduce food waste in our families by even half!” GoSee: latestmagazine.net/post/leftovers
