I buy lot's of produce and sometimes I can't always finish it. Instead of wasting it. I now take veggies that are near expiring and toss them into a food processor. I use the mixture to pep up boring foods. Use in your meatloaf mixture, hide in meatballs and pasta sauces. I even toss with mayo and tuna for a tasty sandwich. My kids haven't even noticed!
Also close to expiring Fruit goes into smoothies, or homemade ice cream.
Anything that's not fit to eat goes into the compost pile!
