    I wish more supermarkets cared about the refrigerants they use. I am not sure if i will shop at certain stores until they change their processes.

    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for utilizing every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable, including the skins, tops, and stalks during your next meal prep?

    To utilize every part of the vegetable I often use vegetable skins to flavor soups and top salads.
