A while back, I posted some rambling on how westerners waste so much food, found here.
I stumbled across this article today on Planet Green which is literally titled “Eat your trash to improve your cooking”. I can’t really comment on the meat and seafood stuff since i’m vegetarian, but the broth is a great idea. I’ve never eaten potato peels or citrus rinds…but hey, its true, i could probably try being a little more resourceful….thinking outside of the box and also considering that the definition of what is and isn’t inedible changes given your circumstances. i.e. Inedible in my mind does definitely not hold the same meaning to a beggar, or a starving family really stretching their dollar to put dinner on the table.
I also love this post. Just love when people present interesting challenges to themself, and kind of goes hand in hand with the idea of less waste, less consumption, less…everything. Eating out of a bowl all day is really doable…i might need a plate here and there for burritos..but i’m loving this idea.
