I Keep Reading About Food Waste

Lately whenever I browse the news I seem to hit upon how much food waste goes into landfills. This really is not good as decaying food creates methane. I agree wholeheartedly with all their suggestions. Compost, but what about you don't have a backyard? Purchase less and use all the leftovers. I do try and do that but for one rather big problem. I am single and live alone. Have you ever tried to shop for one person-it isn't easy. Most items are for 2 or more people thus I end up eating leftovers. I don't really like lrftovers--but I eat them anyway. There are very few cookbooks that are for single people. Even the meals you can order on the internet--even if they say it is an individual serving--it really isn't!

I did spot one and may try it out

The hardest for me is Fresh Fruit, cheese and bread. Purchasing these items on an individual basis gets expensive. I hate to admit it but I have thrown out more oranges then I want to remember--I never can seem to finish a loaf of bread before it goes stale. I love Munster cheese--but how much of it can you eat before mold appears. I do try to purchae pre cut up fruit--like watermelon and eat it as fast as I can or it too goes bad. What I have been doing lately is buying those individual cups of applesauce, peaches amd of course my absolute favorite--JELLO. I can't taste the difference between sugar free or regular--so I get the sugar free (I am a diabetic).

I do recycle all the plastic and I seem to have a lot of it--my biggest problem is reading the recycling mumbers-I'm sure I make mistakes!!!
