The best shopping advice, products, and tips for an efficient kitchen.
1. Shop Smarter
According to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), “Developing habits to save food now [and decrease food waste] could dramatically reduce the need for increased food production in the future.” We can make a difference in our own homes, and there are easy ways to set yourself up so that you’re less inclined to waste food in your kitchen.
First, and perhaps most importantly, avoid food waste at the grocery store. Be realistic with your shopping list, and purchase only what you’ll really eat. Avoid impulse buys, and instead, stick to the items you need for your meal plan. (If you need help with meal planning, check out our Weeknight Meal Planner.)
