Zero Waste Challenge Day 28: Food Waste

30 Day Zero Waste Challenge

Last Updated on January 23, 2024

I hate food waste. I know we’ve already talked about composting, but I want to encourage you to think about stems and scraps in a different way.

Scraps and peels are still food! I would love to do a longer and fuller post on what I like to call “Root to fork” – eating and utilizing the whole veggie! (I did not coin the term) I offer root to fork workshops for those of you interested!

Here are some of my favorite ways to utilize foods found in the composter. 

the challenge:

Once this week – before you throw your scraps in the composter, ask yourself if there’s anything else you could make with them!

Try out some of the recipes above or do a little google searching for ideas.  

I would love to hear what you come up with. What are some of your favorite ways to re-invent food scraps?

  1. I’ve been saving my leftover veggie bits (mostly carrots, onions and celery) to make stock. I need to start a new jar for scraps because my current one is full!

    That banana peel bread looks amazing! I’ve never heard of such a thing but we go through a lot of bananas.
