I will not be wasteful, and throw away uneaten food. Sundays are my meal prep days,but I found myself about to throw out food I didn’t get to eat. I know in theory freezing extra food is beneficial. However, I freeze it and rarely eat it, because I forget about it.
This problem has plagued me all my life. I would go to buffets and basically waste money. On Thanksgiving my eyes were always bigger than my stomach. My mom would watch me to make sure I didn’t throw away good food. I’ve been called a cheap date and wasteful. I spend too much on groceries and still waste a lot if it.
In my endeavor to save money on food and not be wasteful, I made lettuce wraps for dinner out of vegetables and extra meat leftover from Saturday. I paired it with an apple thats been hanging out with me a while.
I must say it was really good, and I need to come up with a system to remember the food I freeze, so I won’t rebuy or find it when I clean out the freezer. If anyone has a system please let me know.
