Declare Your Independence from Food Waste!

While we’re celebrating declaring independence from the British Crown, it’s worth remembering to declare your independence from food waste.

How does one do that? Here’s one way: Whether you’re planning a cookout, a picnic or a regular old meal, plan¬†ahead! Think about how many people will be eating and the amount folks are likely to eat and prepare roughly that amount.

And/or love your leftovers! If you know that you or your crew enjoys leftovers, then there’s less pressure to prepare just the right amount. Nothing says Happy 5th of July like a reheated hot dog or hamburger! (or whatever it may be).

As you revel in all things American, let’s not forget the words of Founding Father and Declaration of Indpendence signer¬†Benjamin Franklin:

Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.

Oh wait, not that one. Try this:

Waste neither time nor money, but make the best use of both. Without industry and frugality, nothing will do, and with them everything.
