Love Food, Hate Waste

A few simple ways to reduce how much food you’re wasting

It’s all too easy, when we’re planning next week’s meals, to go through the fridge, discarding anything that seems to be a bit past its best. Half a lettuce here, a bag of carrots there – before you know it, your bin bag is bulging, and you’re ready to start again with a new trip to the supermarket.

But if you take some time to stop and consider the numbers, you might just think twice. Globally, one third of the food that is produced for human consumption is wasted every year – that’s 1.3 billion tons (United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organisation). On an international scale, that’s quite a staggering figure, especially when you think about the global hunger levels. And on a domestic scale, imagine taking a third of everything you buy in a year, and piling it up in the corner of your kitchen. That’s what the average person is wasting; but it doesn’t have to be that way!

About PlantBased

The evenings are drawing in, the leaves are starting to turn, and there’s a noticeable nip in the air. It can only mean one thing – autumn is arriving. We love the advent of a new season here at PlantBased, because it means we can get fresh inspiration for our cooking. From new fruit and veg that’s in season, to hearty, filling food, perfect for warming our bellies, we love it all! This month, we’re sharing some midweek time-savers that can either be popped in the slow cooker before you head out, or cooked up in a single pot to save on the washing up. We predict the Mushroom and Ale Stew (p28) will become a true autumn favourite! We’re also turning our attention to food waste, with some tips to reduce your food footprint, and some recipes that will use up every last scrap of food in the kitchen. It’s the spookiest month of the year, so we couldn’t let Halloween pass by without a few ghoulish recipes – perfect for parties whether you’re a big kid or a little one. Our Brain Cupcakes (p81) are sure to raise a few eyebrows! And we’ve got Midweek Favourites, Soups and Desserts to round out the recipe selection this month; look no further for all the kitchen inspiration you need. Enjoy the issue!
