I throw money in the trash. I do.
And I put it in the garbage disposal, turn on the cold water, and flip the switch. Sad, I know.
Okay, I don’t actually put dollar bills or metallic coins into the disposal (that would totally jam it), but I do throw away plenty of money, time, and energy through food waste.
From the peels I purposely discard from our produce to the cheese that didn’t get properly put away, an awful lot of food gets put to the curb or down the drain every single week. And each food item wasted represents the time and money spent to plan, purchase, and prepare that food. It’s very frustrating, once you start thinking about it.
That’s what From Garbage to Gourmet is all about. It’s a book about using our food and resources to the fullest. It is packed full of recipes and tips for using up the odds-and-ends hiding in the fridge. It shows how to make use of past-its-prime produce and various other items we would normally put in the trash can without giving a second thought.
On top of the countless ideas, From Garbage to Gourmet is just downright nice to look at. This is one of the most put-together ebooks I’ve ever seen. It has the feel of a magazine, with lots of color photos and quick tips that make it an easy read.
- 114 pages of original, never before published, content PLUS another 87 pages of printable recipes!
- Over 37,000 words
- 81 original recipes
- Beautiful full-color, magazine-style layout
- Exhaustive ingredient index so you can quickly locate recipes and tips
- Printer-friendly recipe pages at the back of the book (not included in page count!)
From Garbage to Gourmet is a valuable resource for creating a better grocery budget. It’s set up in such a way that it can be easily searched for ideas on using whatever ingredient you find hiding behind the milk. And if you think about it, every food item you use instead of throwing away is one less thing that needs added to this week’s grocery list.
