Waste Not, Want Not
I have a confession to make. I am a food waster. It kills me. It gives me guilt. It makes me hate myself. But I do it a LOT! I have really tried to be more conscious about my food planning so that I DON'T waste, but sometimes I just mess up and have to throw away food that I've let go bad.
I have done a few things to stop this terrible habit. One thing, is I bought a juicer. So any veggie or fruit that is about to spoil goes right into my juicer and I drink up the tasty, near rotten beverage (I kid...If it's really rotten, I toss it). The other thing I've started to do is just cook everything in my fridge and put it all on a plate. Like this little concoction that actually turned out to be a really good deconstructed Cobb Salad.
Here's What I Did:
Boil some eggs (Put eggs in a pot, cover with water and turn on high. Once water begins to rapidly boil, turn off the burner and let eggs sit in the water for 15 minutes. Peel and cut). I cooked bacon (Heat oven to 400 degrees and cook bacon in the oven until crisp). I sauteed mushrooms (melt coconut oil over high heat. Add sliced mushrooms and cook until browned, about 8 minutes. Salt & Pepper). Then slice up any veggies you have (tomatoes, cucumber, etc.) Add some greens dressed in a little olive oil and some vinegar (I used balsamic).
And there you have it. A delicious lunch or dinner, hell, even breakfast. And nothing went bad in your fridge. And now you're happy because you're not wasteful. Waste not, want not.
