A lot of people go into their fridge and pantry, and despite having shelves of beautiful food to choose from, feel like they have nothing to eat. This phenomenon is all too familiar in the western world, and it’s easy to get sucked in, but you have to resist!
Building up an arsenal of pantry staples is useless unless you’re actually going to use them, and every day your veggies sit in your fridge they run the risk of going to go bad.
For some people, it can be really difficult to look at what you have on hand and make a meal out of it. We find ourselves looking at recipes that require so much of what we don’t have but going for them anyway.
While this is good for special occasions, getting into the habit of making meals out of what you have is better for your wallet and the planet.
There’s no reason to waste more money on fruits and vegetables if you already have them in the house.
Also, food waste accounts for a large percentage of what gets sent to the landfill, so by making meals that utilize the foods you already have, you’re saving the planet and your wallet a lot of pain.
