The Big Waste

Tonight Ricki and I watched a special on Food Network called The Big Waste.

The show challenged four talented chefs to create a sophisticated meal for 100 people using ONLY food that orchards, meat butchers, and food markets would not use or sell. It was absolutely incredible to see how much food is wasted every day.

America today has become trained to expect only the best. And while we pick through our produce and meat at the store, we are wasting billions of pounds of food every year. 

This special really changed my attitude on how I treat "waste." Watch it. You won't regret it.
