How To Reduce Food Waste

How To Reduce Food Waste

Let's talk about food waste. Every year between 30-40% of food in the U.S. goes to waste as it makes its way through the supply chain—that’s equivalent to two out of five bags of groceries never making it onto your plate. Unbelievable, right? Especially because consumers don't even realize they're doing it a lot of the time. But those random slices of bread and eggs that are a bit past their expiration date add up. Then consider this - food production uses 10% of our total energy budget, 50% of our land and a whopping 80% of all freshwater consumed. In fact, producing the food consumers throw away generates more greenhouse gases than most entire countries do. So as consumers we are not just being wasteful, we're hurting our environment too!

How Meal Delivery is Cheaper Than Grocery Shopping

How Meal Delivery is Cheaper Than Grocery Shopping

Life is busy, too busy sometimes. Busy enough that you don't have time to cook but more than that busy enough that you don't really even have time to go to the grocery store. Think about it – maybe you're a single parent whose just gone back to work after a long maternity leave, or a household with multiple kids with multiple activities that require you to chauffeur them around town on an increasingly hectic schedule or maybe you're a bit older and getting out just isn't as easy as it once used to be. What can you do? Sure, you could order take-out all the time but 1) that gets expensive and 2) (more important) it's terrible for your long-term health. OR you could try a meal delivery service that makes fresh, healthy meals with local ingredients. But wait?

Reheating Seafood? Really?

How to Rehab Seafood with Top Chef Meals

Have you ever heard this before? “The only thing worse than eggs when reheated? Fish. Just don't do it.” Guess what? Not true.

BUT not only is reheating frozen seafood perfectly safe but it can taste absolutely delicious (depending on who's prepared it), and it's simple to do.

First and foremost, there's our preferred method – the microwave oven! Faster heating time, no mess and no fuss.
