Do your grocery shop with a full stomach to avoid food waste

How to avoid food waste?

Never do your grocery shopping with an empty stomach.

Being hungry when grocery shopping will make you have cravings and buy stuff that you don’t need.

As a result, you will likely waste food, because you won’t be able to eat everything before the use by date.

Instead, plan your meals, make a shopping list and stick to it!

Other tips to avoid food waste 👇

You can use the TooGoodToGo app, and find restaurants around you that sell unsold food at a discounted price instead of throwing it away.

Make sure you know the difference between the “best before” and the “use by” date. The “Best before” or BBE “Best Before End” is about quality and not health and safety. Products can still be consumed after the “Best Before” date, they might just not be at their best. Don’t throw them away!

Finally, you can also choose imperfect and weird fruits and vegs! They taste exactly the same, but unfortunately they are often thrown away by the food industry just because they are not pretty! Can you believe it?
