Love your Leftovers
The Food Waste report finds that the households in UK are chucking out 4.2 million tonnes of food and drink every year that could have been consumed.
By cutting down the amount of avoidable food waste going into landfill, an average family with children could save £700 a year.* That’s enough to feed a whole family for at least a month.
For almost 50 years, Flora has been helping generations of families plan meals and get creative in the kitchen. On toast, in packed lunches and when cooking, mums can trust Flora to be an everyday family favourite that helps food taste better. In recent years, Flora has teamed up with Love Food Hate Waste to help families get more mileage out of the food they buy, by providing a range of imaginative recipe ideas. Check out the tasty recipes, many of which can be made from store cupboard ingredients. Why not have a go at glazed baked stuffed red peppers or if you fancy a sweet treat, carrot cakes! Every morsel of these tasty treats can be enjoyed safe in the knowledge that Flora is full of sunflower goodness, made with a blend of natural seed oils that contain at least 70% less saturated fat than butter.
Here are just a few of the tips you can start doing today to decrease waste and increase savings. Learn to love your leftovers and turn last night’s dinner into a healthy lunch for the whole family. And keep an eye on use-by dates. If you don’t think you’ll eat something before its time is up, try freezing it to make it last longer.
At Flora, we also have a whole host of simple tasty recipes available on our website, and they now have an excellent search facility, which allows you to find recipes that are suitable for home freezing - helping you reduce waste and saving time and money.
