I’m all about consuming the freshest food possible, but let’s face it, many people are on a tight budget. In fact, many of the people I coach will use the excuse to eat processed food and fast food simply because they can’t afford to buy fresh produce. Notice I said “excuse”. It may surprise you to learn that one of the biggest reasons Americans throw out so much food is that we’re inclined to pay too much attention to the “sell by” and “use before” dates stamped on food packaging. Many people believe that after the date at issue, the food may be unsafe or spoiled. A new report from the NRDC and Harvard Law School estimates that 91 percent of consumers occasionally throw food away based on “sell by” or “best before” dates, a mistake that costs the average household $275 to $455 per year. So what do those labels tell us?
I cringed when I saw that 52 percent of the fresh fruit and vegetables consumers buy goes into the garbage. They’re the basis of “The Omni Diet”, the foods we all need for the abundance of illness-fighting nutrients they provide. Here’s what I suggest for reining in food waste at home:
