If you stop for a moment to think about all of the foods that go to waste in your fridge on a weekly basis it can be incredibly frustrating, if not downright sad (as a country we shamefully waste almost 40% of our food supply). There’s nothing I hate more than tossing into the composter or garbage food which could have been easily frozen and consumed weeks, if not months, later had only I frozen them before their expiration.
Fortunately, over the years I have learned to become a model freezer. It means that anytime I’m feeling lazy or haven’t been to the grocery in a while I can simply open my freezer door and put together breakfast, lunch or dinner from what’s inside. Fruits, veggies, broths, soups, stews, sauces, pancakes, waffles….the list is endless!
Watch this short How to Freeze Foods Video for a ton of tips on how to freeze everything from fresh foods, to nuts, cookies and more. Not only will you be able to salvage so much of your food and have it on hand for a later date when you need it, but you’ll be saving tons of money in the long run not having to replace food that’s gone to waste!
