  • Reflection Question
    Food Weekly Meal Planning
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Does this surprise you? Where would you rather use this money?

    I ordered a meal kit, thinking it would help. I'm not sure that is the best solution for me.

    This is hard to accomplish since I'm a night owl by nature but need to rise early in the day.  I no longer sleep in on the weekends to help me stay on this unnatural schedule.
