In a world overflowing with information, and with waste, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the idea of how to tackle one’s own wastefulness. That’s what makes Lindsay Miles’ The Less Waste No Fuss Kitchen such a gem of a book; not only will you learn how to reduce your kitchen waste in step-by-step ways that easily integrate into daily life, but you’ll learn the why behind the importance of doing so.
There’s something for everyone in this book, from the die-hard zero wasters to those who just want their pantry to look prettier (glass jars! Life changing!)
This book will soon become a staple in your kitchen, you’ll find yourself reaching for it as frequently as you reach for salt and pepper. We also highly recommend bringing it along with you to the grocery store, as it is chock full of helpful tips and hints for navigating the plastic and packaging loving aisles.
Consider this book the grocery list of kitchen waste reduction, helping to keep you on track and on your way towards a greener future! It’s an essential guide, helping you go from the grocery store, to your fridge, to the prep counter, to cooking, serving, eating, and storing. Here’s to making 2021 our most sustainable yet!
