Inspired by the Love Food Hate Waste campaign Kate launched the No Waste Food Challenge in a bid to encourage others to do the same. She asked fellow food bloggers to share the ways they’ve avoided throwing out those wilted carrots, that cream slightly past it’s best before date or the bits of things long forgotten in the back of the fridge or cupboard.
The challenge has run quite successfully over the last four years, and in 2013 I began co-hosting it with Kate. In 2014, however, Kate had personal commitments taking up much of her time, so she’s handed the No Waste Food Challenge baton over to me.
I have made a few changes to the challenge. First, I am keeping the theme open – each month you are free to share any recipe which uses up any ingredients which otherwise might have gone to waste. Tell us how you salvaged that stale bread, those spotty mushy brown bananas, etc! I’ve also set up a Pinterest board, which all entries will be added to.
You may also find that your entries will work well with Credit Crunch Munch, co-hosted by Camilla At Fab Food 4 All and Helen over at Fuss Free Flavours, and Extra Veg by Michelle at Utterly Scrummy Food for Families and Helen from Fuss Free Flavours. Don’t forget to check The Food Blog Diary to see what else you could link up to!
