Food Waste and Sustainability

As a single person, buying food and not having food waste is a challenge. I often don't buy fresh fruit because I can not eat it all before much of it goes bad, bananas and apples last a little longer than other fruits.

It is not uncommon that I will use sliced green, red, yellow or orange peppers or tomatoes in all my meals until they are gone because they go bad quickly.

Buying a head of lettuce or even half a cabbage gives me pause, I can't use it all. With cabbage, I can freeze it and use it in a skillet dish.

Then there's seafood. I am struggling to know what my choices are, the Seafood Watch does not cover all brands but it's a start in trying to understand seafood sustainability.
