    Week 1 Focus: Planning Track My Wasted Food
    What did you find you are tossing the most? How can you change your habits to avoid wasting this food?

    I have noticed that most of my tossing relates to thinking of certain foods as "special". I put off using them in "everyday" dishes, and then they go bad! It's so silly! I need to shift my thinking a bit.

    Are you someone who typically chooses what you buy based on what is on sale? How can you make sure you don't buy more than what you need?

    I usually make a grocery list based on what I need. However, I can be very impressionable in the store. I like to buy treats for myself, and if they're on sale, it's hard to resist. That being said, I don't usually buy more than I can eat just because something's on sale.

    I made a meal, then immediately looked in my fridge to figure out what the next dinner could be. And now I've got a grocery list and time picked to go to the grocery store, just before I have time to cook again. I think this will work for me- preventing my "wishful thinking" where I buy ingredients but then don't have time to cook with them.

    What meal plan method works for you and why? Have you tried some in the past that didn't work?

    I think an ingredients-based planning method works best for me - making a big batch of one thing based on what's in my fridge to be used up, then eating the leftovers while I plan the next dish. In the past I think I've planned too far ahead and run out of time to make the dishes I planned to make. I always underestimate how much time cooking takes!

    I got up early to do food prep so I'd be more likely to make a hearty dinner with perishables tonight!
