Enjoy freeze-dried fruits in addition to fresh fruit to cut down on waste.
How much money do you waste per year on rotten fruit? According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the average American family of four throws out an estimated $130 per month in spoiled and discarded food. That’s $1560 per year! Just imagine what your family could do with that money.
There are several factors that contribute to this shocking amount of wasted fruit:
- Overbuying: We’ve all done it. We get to the grocery store or farm market and find ourselves faced with an abundance of delicious, fresh, seasonal fruits and purchase more than we can feasibly consume before the fruit spoils.
- Busy schedules: Although fruit is a preferred healthy snack, some of us find ourselves reaching for less nutritious alternatives that are easier to eat on the go.
- Poor quality: We purchase that perfect looking carton of fresh berries and find that some on the bottom have rotten. It’s not our fault, but it does happen occasionally and it’s disappointing.
It’s probably not realistic to have 0% waste when it comes to fresh fruit, but there are certainly ways to significantly reduce it. Many people have found a solution by incorporating freeze-dried fruit into their daily diet. Freeze-dried fruit has a long shelf-life so it won’t spoil, and it’s a healthy alternative to fresh fruit if your fruit bowl turns up empty, or if your favorite fruits are out of season. By adding some freeze-dried fruit into your diet you can stop overbuying fresh fruit, knowing if you happen to run out there is freeze-dried fruit to enjoy year-round.
