End Food Waste With “From Garbage to Gourmet”!
Food waste is a topic near and dear to my heart. We feed eight on a modest single income. I come from a family that wasted nothing. . .I remember eating tongue (shiver). I was delighted to have a preview copy of “From Garbage to Gourmet” appear in my email inbox. It is raising my frugal ways to the next level!
The statistics show that the average American family wastes 25% of what they buy at the grocery store. That means that for our family, with our average weekly grocery budget of $160. . .we throw $40 of food away each week! This is a staggering number!
I first met blogger/author Carrie Isaac a few years ago when she introduced me to her Grocery University Program. It changed the way that I thought about sales, stocking up, and coupons.
Once again, Carrie is teaching me new ways to save!
From garbage to Gourmet helps me to use everything that I buy!
Did you know that up to 49% of the weight of fresh broccoli that you buy at the grocery store is stems? Do you like broccoli stems and your family gladly snaps them up. If so, you are lucky. If not, you need From Garbage to Gourmet!
Or, consider the house full of toddlers who take one bite of apple and discard the rest?
Or, what can I do with all of those vegetable peels?
How about that half a can of tomato paste?
What about the leftover coffee . . . and the coffee grounds?

I have to tell you, this is a beautiful ebook, and it was an absolute pleasure to read. I’ve already been inspired to start my own broth bucket, and I bet you will be too!

Your piggy bank (and your husband) will thank you!
