​Save Money on Your Groceries

Love Food Hate Waste is hitting the road this Spring. We'll be visiting Safeway stores across the region to talk to shoppers about how they can save $700 per year on groceries by reducing food waste in their homes.

Stop by our booth to sample treats made from food that might otherwise be wasted, including wilted kale smoothies and "bruised-chetta," bruschetta made from overripe tomatoes. We'll also demonstrate easy, practical tips to help you use up all the food you buy.

Wasted Food No More

Food that's past its peak can still be delicious and nutritious. If you didn't get a chance to taste "bruised-chetta" or a wilted kale smoothie at one of our events, try making them at home.

Tomato "Bruised-chetta" with Stale Baguette

Don't abandon tomatoes just because of some bruises or wrinkles. Use them to make sauces, soups, or our "bruised-chetta" recipe! Pair it with slices of that day-old baguette that's gone a little too crusty on your counter.

Revitalizing Kale Smoothie

This smoothie is perfect for using up bruised and ripe fruits, but the highlight is the slightly limp, not-so-fresh looking kale. As long as there's no water leaching out, the greens should be fine! Add them to the smoothie for a huge nutritional boost in your day.

Wilting leafy greens, browning bananas, and over-ripe berries don't have to be thrown out.  They are great to use for smoothies! Try the variations below based on what you have in your fridge!

  • Kale + Apple + Ginger + Lemon Juice + Honey + Water (detox version)
  • Kale + Banana + Pineapple + Mango + Milk (dairy-based version)
  • Spinach + Ginger + Peach + Honey + Water
