Intro to menu planning gets you started with shopping and pantry lists as well as menu sheets.
You are about to cook dinner when you reach into the produce drawer for some lettuce to make a salad. The problem- it’s slimy and gross. Upon further inspection, there are several items that are growing things they shouldn’t be. It’s like a science experiment, gone wrong, in there.
Or how about the fudge sauce, that was on clearance, and seemed like such a great deal. It’s now sat there for over a year. Is it still good? You wonder when you will ever use it and now have guilt about buying it.
Food waste is not only a huge issue for our pocketbooks but it’s a major loss of resources!!
We believe Menu Planning, more than almost any other option, is one of the best ways to reduce food waste.
Salvage Sister not only taught a menu planning course as a cooking instructor but also used menu planning as the cook at a high school (with little to no food waste).
This is why we created a free Intro to Menu Planning course to get you started in the right direction and is available to our email subscribers as a thank you for being part of this salvage community!
The mini-course will take very little time to get you started toward weekly menu planning and less food waste. We also share some of our no-waste recipes to keep leftovers from being thrown away as well as the grocery list, home inventory, and weekly/monthly menu planners.
- Get out your cookbooks and start thinking about your meals. This can also be done in a group setting which is not only fun to do with a bunch of girlfriends, but it really gets the creative juices flowing. Plus, you stick with it as well.
- Sign up for the “Salvage News – Newsletter”. You will be directed to our welcome page where you will have access to your course.
- Print out all the pages (multiple if desired).
BONUS TIPS – When taking this course, take an inventory of what you have AND think about the food that is currently in season. No blackberry cobbler in January unless you have them in the freezer (like we do when we go blackberry picking as we talk about here).
Let us know what food planning changes you have made and/or what works for you. We love hearing from you.
