10 Food Scraps That You Should Never Throw Away

18 April, 2016 ,

Food waste is a serious problem all around the world. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), about a third of the food produced worldwide winds up in the trash.

In the industrialised world, the majority of the waste comes from consumers who buy too much food and throw it out when they don’t eat it. In the developing world, it’s principally the result of inefficiency and the lack of proper storage.

We can all easily do our part, for example, by using leftovers. Here are 10 ways to use your food scraps:

1. Broccoli Stalks

You can cut the stalk, peel it with the help of a peeler, and then cook it with the florets.

2. Fruit Peels
