It’s Food Waste Action Week, so I thought I’d share some recipe where you can use old fruit or veg: well this is definitely one of those as I used old apples, just cut the brown bits out.
Why is Food Waste Action Week important?
Wasting food is one of the biggest contributors to climate change. A lot of water, land, energy, time, and transportation go into producing our food, and yet we waste 4.5 million tonnes of edible food every year in UK homes. That’s enough to make 10 million meals! Plus cutting down on food waste will also save you money. And it’s easy to do so: just buy as much food you eat and eat the food. That’s it. There are lots of tips on how to avoid food waste in this article I wrote earlier: 25 Smart Tips How To Reduce Food Waste At Home
