I go through the fridge about once a month. I don't throw out that much because I have been making an effort to eat what I have bought, or freeze if I cannot eat it at the moment.

I hate waste of any kind. . . especially food, and given there are food mountains, and that shops and supermarkets throw food away regularly, I try and use every item of food that comes through our house. As regards meals, I was always brought up to eat everything on my plate and I do this as an adult, so there is no waste.

I am a high raw vegan, so my kitchen and fridge is full of fruits and vegetables. I make sure that I always plan ahead so none of my produce goes bad or becomes over ripe so I don't waste money or resources.

What's left every now and then goest to my neighbour's chicken or to stray cats depending on the kind of food. Throwing food in the garbage should be concidered as a "sin" speaking in religious terms or as felony.
