Basically, don't buy more food than you are going to use up.
Pretty straight forward recipes.

Would you buy three bags of groceries and then leave one behind in the parking lot? Doubtful, but according to Victoria food journalist Cinda Chavich, such an act would represent the food wastage that has become commonplace in North America. Her new cookbook, "Waste Not Want Not," goes beyond a collection of outstanding recipes; it also serves as a guide for shopping, cooking and eating without waste.

Chavich opens with an overview of the food waste problem, including some of the most problematic areas (e.g. seafood), but then explores some creative solutions to show that one can indeed shop and eat more sustainably. The book contains close to 150 delicious, waste-free recipes covering all the bases from soup to meat to dessert: Caponata, Grilled Fajitas and Roasted Carrot Sesame Hummus to name a few. Chavich proves that you don't have to sacrifice taste or quality to make a difference.

I think this sums it up. We wouldn't buy three bags of food, dropping one in the parking lot, and then drive away? Why do we bring home and prepare more than we need?
