Dana Gunders is a friend of ours, and speaks in Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story as an expert on household waste. She has just released a new book, about exactly that, household food waste reduction! It will be your new best friend in your efforts to reduce food waste in your home.
The Waste Free Kitchen Handbook has practical strategies, checklists, and educational info-graphics. It has use-it-up recipes like Sour Milk Pancakes and Buried Chocolate Avocado Mousse. And to top it off, there is a reference section on how to store, freeze, and get creative with over 85 common foods.
I have a copy on my bedside right now, and I can tell you that it is packed with great information presented in an easy-to-understand way. As an expert or new comer to a waste-free life, this book is filled with applicable knowledge.
