    I notice that people drive to fast! I also notice the sounds and smells. There is a man on my street that puts his extra vegetables out on a side container so that others can take his extras!

  • Reflection Question
    Food Zero-Waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for utilizing every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable, including the skins, tops, and stalks during your next meal prep?

    I feed the ends of cucumbers, carrots, zucchini, etc., to my dogs. They eat almost any fruit and vegetable. for other bits, I keep a ziploc in the freezer for this. When it's full I make vegetable broth

      That's too funny! I know a lot of people that feed leftover veggies to their chickens :)
