This was my lunch yesterday. It was delicious, all cobbled together from bits and bobs in our fridge, cupboard and what we optimistically call our ‘herb garden’. I love using up every single thing before going shopping again, because it reduces waste, makes me figure out what we like to eat and what we allow to languish in the veggie drawer and forces me to be creative with our meals.
It’s difficult (very difficult) to get the fruit and vegetables we love without plastic packaging. We do a lot of our shopping in Lidl these days and hopefully this news will do something to alleviate the amount of plastic around our food. At least we can prevent food waste as much as possible buy using up what we have before filling our cupboards and fridge again.
