Even though I do my best to minimise my waste on a personal level, it can be very difficult to control the waste that occurs in other facets of my life, most notably my workplace. I work in a corporate office and there are instances where there is catering ordered for business lunches and so on. I generally try to make sure that any leftovers are not wasted. Last week there was a small amount left on a fruit platter which I retrieved with no particular plan in mind. I decided to put it in a container in the freezer with a view to using it for smoothies at a later date.
Yesterday morning I removed this frozen block of mixed fruit which included a couple of types of melon, strawberries, grapes and a few blueberries.
Into the blender…………
I added juice of a lime and a banana and blended it until smooth.
About 1/3 of the mixture was added to a small amount of water and became part of my breakfast.
The remainder went back in the freezer. I whizzed it briefly in the evening and we had a delicious fruit sorbet for dessert.
It is a small but important step to save whatever perfectly good food that I can. Otherwise, I know it will simply be thrown out.
