    My green beans were getting old so I decided to use some of them as treats for my dog- she helps me use up a lot of scraps and odds and ends. Once you know which human foods are dog-safe, you might find you have a lot of fresh, tasty and low-waste treats on hand to motivate and provide enrichment for your pup!

    Today I converted some old bananas into a frozen snack for later. Slice and make into tiny sandwich bites with your choice of nut butter, freeze on a sheet, transfer to a container and enjoy whenever you need a treat!  These bananas were getting very mushy but it won't matter when they are frozen. Good for people like me who will only make banana bread once a year!

    Went in my fridge today to find that a grapefruit I had bought was half moldy and soft. What a sad way to get started with the challenge! Hope yours is going better :'(
