Green Your Gastronomy: DON'T Save Your Food
Tip #4: Get creative with your leftovers.
While composting your leftover food is an excellent way to reduce waste, you can’t compost some kinds of meat and cooked food, and the resultant fertilizer is only useful if you’ve got a whole lotta garden. Instead of tossing your extra food (or leaving it in Tupperware for three weeks), try some new takes on leftovers: Sandwich crusts make bread pudding, overripe bananas become a mean smoothie, and almost any leftovers chopped up with rice make a Colombian picadito — yum.
