Create a Meal Plan

Planning at least a few meals a week can help ensure that you eat healthy meals. It also prevents you from buying too much food. 

Save & Eat Leftovers Safely

If you think you won't be able to eat the leftovers in three days, store them in the freezer and label them. Keep the freezer tidy so that food doesn't get lost. 

Compost If You Can

Composting leftover food is a useful way to reuse leftovers and convert food waste into energy for plants. An outdoor composter may be good for someone with a large yard, while a countertop composter is better for city residents. 

Use Leftovers Creatively

Look for ways to use food that isn't fresh instead of throwing it away. Leftovers and vegetable peels can be turned into soup stock. Soft apples or blueberries are perfect for cooking in oatmeal. Slightly wilted vegetables are ideal for soups or stir-fries.
