I don’t remember the link that got me to The Four Pounds of Cheese Project. But I liked the idea. It’s based on National Geographic data that people waste 4 pounds of cheese, among other food stuff every year. (Maybe Americans, not people, I can’t remember.)
Well I has just decided I was changing back to a pricier brand of cheese, as the not so expensive one gets moldy before I can finish it. Here I am wasting cheese. And I seriously doubt I’m eating less cheese. So I figured I give it a go. *:)
Add to that the feeling of superiority I can have when I hardly waste anything, how cold I not try it. I decide I would count compostables as waste. I’m just lucky to be a composter.
I realized on Sunday that the cooked beet’s were in the way back of the fridge. Dang, I have wasted already. Sure enough they are fuzzy. They were being shielded from view by some home grown lettuce that’s mostly not fit to eat, and a bag of baby spinach. It’s a case of eating what’s in front, the spinach, and not looking further. And I like beets!
So here they are. It’s a Monday for sure.
I probably could have saved some of this, but slimy lettuce is slimy, and I have tons of lettuce still. It went to seed last year. Yay, nature.
Okay 1 & 1/4 beets. But that means I only ate 3/4 of one beet. WASTE!
