"It's a topic near and dear to my heart, as I write the blog Wasted Food," Jonathan said, "I examine waste throughout the food chain and talk about how to avoid it."
WastedFood.com has some great ideas for cutting back on food waste, both at home and in restaurants, so click through for the rundown on the site, and leave us your ideas.
I'm definitely more on the look-out for ways to save food and I don't know anyone who isn't thinking along these lines given the current chilly economic outlook. Are you trying to waste less food? What's your technique? My primary way of doing this is just to eat less and always to have a mind toward this end. I only buy extra if I know I'm cooking for a few meals to leave for little mouths and babysitters when I'm away. In restaurants, we almost always share an entree.
Leave us your tips, personal rules, and strong feelings below.
