The Waste Not, Want Not Cookbook: How to Shop, Cook, and Eat With Zero Waste by Cinda ChavichWaste Not, Want Not. It wasnt just your grandmas favorite expression—it was a way of life. Back then, it was a matter of making do with what you had, but now food waste is a huge global issue. A full 40 percent of food is wasted in North America, and more than half of that is dropped into the household trash or compost bins. Many people have no idea of the devastating implications of this—if food waste was a country it would be the third largest producer of CO2 in the world, after the US and China, and is a major contributor to global warming. But by heeding the wise adage our grandparents held dear, we can do our part to help. The Waste Not, Want Not Cookbook shows you exactly how to save food, save money, and save the environment—one carrot at a time.
You can rework so many meals—stale bread into sweet and savory puddings, roasts into soups and sandwich wraps, a bounty of fresh fruit or veggies into crisps, smoothies and freezable soups or sauces. This book will show you how to transform leftovers in delicious new dishes, store and preserve fresh foods to make them last, shop smart when buying in bulk, create one big feast, and feed your family for three days, and interpret “best-before” dates on packaged foods. So resolve to reclaim the contents of your refrigerator and pantry before sending it off to the compost pile (or horrors, the landfill!). Do something about it, one meal at a time from your own kitchen.
