Love Food, Hate Waste

A staggering $1 billion worth of food is thrown away in the United States annually. Even more shocking is a new study from the University of Arizona that reveals forty to fifty per cent of all food ready for harvest never gets eaten. If we stopped wasting good food we could avoid 18 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalents being emitted each year, the same as taking 1 in 5 cars off of our roads.

The terms "portion" and "serving" are often used interchangeably, but they don't mean the same thing. A "portion" is the amount of food you choose to eat for meals or snacks (like a plateful of pasta or a handful of raisins). Be conscious of the portions you take each meal to minimize food waste.
