Probably been covered before, but a third of food in the UK gets binned. Fuck's that all about?
but thawed leftovers are really last measures stuff
All that's in my food bin is peelings, non-edible bits etc. I have friends who eat half a meal then put the rest in the bin. WTAF???
I just don't understand it.
IE - eat the equivalent of another meal during the prepaeration process.
I throw away very little. I laugh in the face of sell by dates.
This sometimes leads to some weird meals.
and in that time I've managed to finish a loaf of bread maybe twice, 90% of the time I have to throw away a lot of moldy bread.
And only take out the relevant number of slices as and when you need them. Frozen bread can return to normal bread form/toast in mere seconds.
Don't want to get all PocketMouse here (I totally do), but once you've frozen a slice of bread, it'll never be the same again.
but unfrozen bread can be normal enough for all your impromptu sandwich needs. As for toasted frozen bread, no difference whatsoever.
Clearly the difference is less pronounced, but you try to get a nice pillowy piece of toast out of a frozen loaf of bread. Can't be done.
I'd give you a million pounds if you could correctly identify the fresh/frozen bits of toast in a lineup of 10 slices.
I have a bad habit of buying apples and not eating them but I'm trying to get out of that.
I threw away five slices of bread today. I froze them a while ago but they were mouldy when I got them out of the freezer, can only assume they were like that when I put them in and I didn't realise :'(
I always throw away bread and soya milk cos bread goes mouldy and soya milk smells gross after a while. And I usually have like a piece of toast and one bowl of cereal a week or something. WASTEFUL AS. FUCK OFF ME.
Everything I buy I eat. I eat way too much nowadays.
its disgusting really.
As in - Tescos throw out stuff. You take some of the stuff home. You eat the stuff.
'cause they only sell them in fucking huge bags at the market.
I always tell people to eat my carrots but I guess it must sound weird from their point of view, me being really eager for them to eat my carrots.
sometimes I get fucking sick of what I'm eating for no real reason (existential ennui maybe?) and have to throw it away in disgust
normally I eat everything other than off fruit and the odd vegetable (especially mushrooms - can rarely get through a whole packet)
Never worked out why it's cheaper to buy a full sized loaf and throw a few slices away than buy one half the size, all of which I'd eat.
Also annoys me that because none of the local greengrocers etc are open outside my working hours, it's practially impossible to buy loose fruit and veg in the week. Not much good wanting a couple of mushrooms for a recipe when I can only buy a punnet of the things, which I'm clearly not going to use all of before they go off.
obviously you can buy those mini loaves, but Spinal Tap had no time for 'small bread' and neither do I.
I freeze what I am not sure to eat this day
this means that i don't end up eating fresh bread for a couple of days, okish bread for a couple of days and then shit stale bread for a couple of days followed by throwing some of it out. fresh rolls all week long oooooooh yeah. even if it means i'm spending slightly more money each week i enjoy it more and less ends up in the bin.
I spend 40 quid on a weekly shop and then buy nothing but take-aways.
Seriously though, just loads of bread. Fuck mini-loaves.
It can get a bit disgusting. But I really like food, and really hate throwing it out. Only a strict gym regimen keeps me from being a total fat fuck.
