Part 1 of 3: How to Reduce Food Waste | Meal Planning

Welcome to the first part of our three-part series on reducing food waste in the kitchen! We're Two Pillars, an eco-friendly kitchen brand that's dedicated to helping you reduce your carbon footprint, one meal at a time.

In this article, we're going to focus on meal planning, which is one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce food waste. Here are some tips to get you started:

1: Take inventory of your pantry, fridge, and freezer

Before you plan your meals, take a look at what you already have on hand. This will help you avoid buying duplicates or forgetting about ingredients that might go bad soon.

2: Plan your meals for the week

Once you know what you have, plan out your meals for the week. This will help you avoid impulse buys and last-minute takeout orders. Plus, it'll save you time and money in the long run!

3: Make a shopping list

Based on your meal plan, make a shopping list of the ingredients you need. Stick to your list as much as possible, and avoid buying items that you won't use up.

4: Cook in bulk

If you have the time and space, consider cooking in bulk and freezing leftovers for future meals. This is a great way to save time and money, and it also reduces the likelihood of food going bad in the fridge.
