Unfortunately though, some of us end up with more leftovers than we know how to handle which is why a campaign has been started called National Leftovers Day.
DoSomething’s National Leftovers Day is on Boxing Day because as many of us are probably experiencing today, it’s the day when our fridges are bursting with food.
By knowing ways in which we can use our leftovers however, it can help the environment and reduce the amount of food that goes to landfill. Not to mention it will be good for our wallets.
Each year, Australians throw out $8 billion worth of edible food. This is a staggering figure, but National Leftovers Day hopes to change this for the better.
So if you’re wondering how you are going to get through all of your Christmas leftovers this year, then head over to www.foodwise.com.au/foodwaste/national-leftovers-day and learn how you can use your leftovers and prevent food waste.
Hopefully you can come up with some yummy recipes that will help your food last for days to come!
We would just like to say to all of our readers that we hope you had a terrific Christmas Day yesterday and that your Boxing Day is just as much fun.
