Eat less, live more

We Americans demand perfection when it comes to our fresh fruits and vegetables.  That’s why the blemished apples I buy at the farmer’s market are one third to cost of their ‘more perfect’ siblings.  Do my eyes, stomach or blender care?  Not one tinker’s cuss.

Food waste is destroying the planet, writes Sharon Kunde in today’s LA Times.  In her piece, Kunde explains that worldwide, one third of all food produced is lost or thrown away each year, amounting to 1.3 billion tons unconsumed. For those who love numbers, that’s equal to 2,600,000,000,000,000 pounds of food.  How ’bout them apples?

Read her piece then reconsider how you can help.  Buy, eat and discard less, live more.
