Love Food Hate Waste? [HD Video] Stale Bread Salad & Leftover Greens Smoothies

It really is atrocious to waste food especially when there are people in the world going hungry.

In the state of New South Wales in Australia every household spends about $1036 a year on food that gets wasted, totalling $2.5 billion across the whole of NSW. This equates to about 800 tonnes of leftovers that are thrown out and end up in landfills. What a waste!

The reasons for all this food going to waste could be poor meal planning, cluttered fridges, buying and cooking too much, not storing food correctly, buying low quality food that doesn’t taste good, and not utilising leftovers.

Domestic Goddess Alison Drover, a farm to fork cook from www.forkinthefield.com believes in cooking sustainably and using locally grown seasonal and organic produce. In this 4 minute video she shares some ideas about how to use leftovers and reduce food waste (and $) in your kitchen, and makes Panzanella Salad, Gazpacho Soup and Green Smoothies to get your tastebuds watering.

Video filmed at a Love Food Hate Waste Workshop run by Ace Community Colleges in Bangalow, New South Wales

A Perspective From Those Most Affected [HD VIDEO]

There is a small populated low-lying island visible from mainland Manus Island of Papua New Guinea that is shrinking because of climate change impacts. Life is becoming increasingly difficult for the 900 people of Ahus Island. Because of an increase in severity of weather and oceanic currents, the island that has sustained them for hundreds of years is slowly washing away and fish and other marine animals are becoming harder to catch.

The For Greenies film crew recently travelled to Ahus Island and recorded this climate change song written and performed by the Ponai String Band of Ahus Island.

It is one thing knowing how to design and plant a food garden. Knowing how to prepare the harvested food for eating is something equally important and completes the whole process of organic gardening. All your efforts in the garden are rewarded when you taste the delicious nutritious food that you have produced yourself – and it always tastes better when you have grown it yourself!
