Americans Throw Away 40% of Their Food - Truth or Lie?

Posted by Trish Morris | Posted on 8:38 PM



I was driving to work the other morning, and as I often do, I listen to KLSS radio station (106.1).  Harry O'Neil is the morning DJ, and he quite often has a few interesting facts he passes on to his morning listeners.  That particular morning, I caught something that peaked my interest.  He indicated that the Washington Post had an article about Americans wasteful natures and that this 'side of the pond' throws away approximately 40% of their food.

I was still curious after I got off work and arrived at home, so I checked that out on the net.  I found quite a few articles (one here),  and a portion of that article from the Washington Post caught my eye and I have included 2 parts below.

Americans throw away up to 40 percent of their food every year, cramming landfills with at least $165 billion worth of produce and meats at a time when hundreds of millions of people suffer from chronic hunger globally, according to an analysis released Tuesday by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

And another -

On this side of the Atlantic, U.S. regulators could clear up confusion over date labeling, Gunders said. The “use by” and “sell by” dates are not federally regulated in this country, except for poultry and infant formula, and they often reflect when the product passes its peak quality rather than the product’s safety, she said.

As a result, consumers end up tossing food that’s safe to eat.
And they’re not proud of it, according to a survey released this month by Shelton Group, an advertising agency. Of the 1,000 people polled by the group, 39 percent rated wasting food as their top “green guilt” — the highest ranking, well ahead of leaving the lights on when they leave the room (27 percent) or not recycling (21 percent.)

Suzanne Shelton, the group’s founder, said people have the best of intentions when they fill their grocery baskets with meats and fresh produce. But life gets in the way. “We get swamped at work, or have to get our kids to various activities and we find ourselves picking up a pizza on the way home,” Shelton said in a statement. “By the end of the week, we’re throwing out the spoiled food from our refrigerators.”

Now, why do you think this information got my attention?  With food prices going up, more American's headed to the 'obese' designation, and people's mindset that they cannot afford to eat healthy (fresh fruits & veggies, lean meats, whole grains) the mere fact that we throw so much away because the food is spoiled before we can eat it?!!!


Umm... what are these?  TUPPERWARE FRIDGESMARTS!


You think you cannot afford to eat healthy fruits and veggies?  Because they are so very expensive?  You have a busy lifestyle and end up eating takeout while your good intent of leading a healthier lifestyle is sitting in the fridge spoiling away?

What if I told you that the pint of strawberries you bought last week would still be good after an additional WEEK or TWO WEEKS stored in your fridge?

How about that lettuce you bought with the intention of tearing it apart, adding carrots, cukes, and other stuff to it so you can create your 'grab and go' salad lunch?  Don't much like that slimy, brown, smelly something that USED to be edible salad greens?

Tupperware’s unique ACE (Atmosphere Controlled Environment) venting system allows just the right amount of air into the container by means of two vents on the end of the box. Flip open one or both vents, depending on what’s inside--a handy guide gives venting recommendations. For instance, broccoli likes a lot of air, zucchini very little. Raised ridges on the bottom of the container allow condensation to drain away from produce, maintaining freshness. Decorated with a wavy line pattern, the textured lid reduces sliding when another container is stacked on top. The container and lid are dishwasher-safe but should not be used in a microwave. Tupperware products, carries a lifetime warranty against chipping, cracking, breaking, and peeling.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Posted by Trish Morris | Posted on 7:08 PM


Who da thunk it?   Moi is a Tupperware Consultant!  Moi? Yes! 

And, with the help of my Tupperware mentor Theresa - who is fast becoming someone I consider a friend, I have found this little beauty!

Love, love, love the Breakfast Maker!  Omelets in 2 - 3 minutes?   Whoo Hoo! 

Here are a couple more of my favs! 

Steaming is one of the healthiest ways to prepare food because it retains nutrients, fatty acids and vitamins while preserving color, texture and flavor. The SmartSteamer blocks microwaves from cooking foods. Instead, microwaves are directed to the Water Tray, causing the water to boil and the steam to rise for perfectly steamed foods. The two-tiered system lets you steam one or two foods at once.

They can be your favorites also.. give me a call or visit my Tupperware site  HERE

Have I told you lately that I love you Pinterest?

If I were to make every recipe I pin, I wouldn't leave the house...

Coconut Cream Pie  from the Dough Puncher Blog... awesome recipes located there!

But you know what really is 'pure mouth-joy'?! Coconut Cream Pie.


(what was left after 4 hours and 2 people. . . uh. . . DELICIOUS.)
This is a 3-step process. Not really extremely difficult, but not really super quick either. I listed a super short version of this recipe at the end, using store-bought components instead of homemade (not that I would recommend store-bought over homemade, but if you're in a
hurry. . . i guess. . .)

Coconut Cream Pie

For the Crust:1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cups shortening
5-7 Tbs. cold water (or even . . coconut water. . oooh)

1) Cut shortening into flour, until shortening is in pea-sized pieces. Stir in water as needed, until just combined.
2) Roll out on a floured surface, and place in a 9-inch pie plate. Crimp edges. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, until lightly golden. Let cool.

For the Vanilla Coconut Pudding:
2 2/3 cups whole milk (1/2 evaporated milk and half water is a great substitute for whole milk!)
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch (don't do the flour substitute, just use cornstarch)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups sweetened, flake coconut

1) In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk and egg well (so they are COMPLETELY) incorporated. Add the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Cook over medium heat, whisking often, until thickened. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir in coconut. Pour into cooled crust. Place in refrigerator for a few hours, or until chilled.

For the Whipped Cream and Topping:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 T. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup coconut

1) Combine cream, sugar, and vanilla. Whip until light and fluffy. Spread on top of chilled pie.
2) Spread coconut on a pan. In a 350 oven, toast for about 2-4 minutes, until lightly golden. Sprinkle evenly on top of the pie.

To Make This Super Fast:
1) Store-bought refrigerated Pie Crust dough, fitted into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
2) Prepare a box of vanilla pudding mix, stir in 1 cup coconut (or more to taste), pour into cooled pie crust. Put in the fridge until chilled.
3) Spread an 8 0z container of Cool Whip on the top.
4) Toast 1 cup coconut in a 350 degree oven for 2-4 minutes, until lightly golden. Sprinkle evenly over pie.

Ivory Soap, Microwave Oven & Grandkids

Posted by Trish Morris | Posted on 7:07 PM


We love it when the grandkids come over to our house.. we love it when they spend the night because we have a lot of fun with them.

I had seen something really cool on the blog "Making Memories with Your Kids" and I couldn't wait to try it with these cute faces.

First, we got out one bar of Ivory Soap and asked Grandpa to cut it into quarters.

Amaya, being the oldest, went first.

She put the soap in the microwave on a small paper plate, put the time on for 3 minutes (within 30 seconds it was pretty much done).

It started to puff up within the 30 seconds... fascinating to watch.

Pinterest is your virtual 'pin' board.  You see something you like on the internet?  Bookmark it?  HA!  Pin It!

You don't have to create an account - you can't unless someone invites you.  Membership only to pin, but you can window shop and see what other people from around the world have pinned.  

The following is from www.ladyandablog.com - she explains what Pinterest is pretty well.

Let’s start at the beginning: What is going on when I click on Pinterest’s home page?


Pinterest is basically a website for people to “pin” their interests on a virtual board. When you click on Pinterest.com, you are taken to a view of ALL pins that the staff thinks are worthy to view. I thought at first that the main page will literally show every pin from every user. However, as I started to actually use the site, I noticed this is not the case.

I actually love the home page because it gives me access to people I don’t actually know. There’s a really great chance that I am going to come across something fabulous and fresh every time I go there… which is often!

What can I do  on Pinterest?

You can observe or you can participate: Maybe you just like looking at pretty pictures. Perhaps you are in need of some inspiration? Pinterest can even help you with your dinner plans! It is everything to everyone!!

Let me explain. I am a what I would refer to as a 'foodie'. When I first got my account, I started a "Recipe" board and started to “pin” pictures I liked from other websites that relate to this topic. I am OBSESSED.  It’s a great way for me to store everything I need and reference it later.  Pinterest allows me to keep it all in one place. Magic I tell you. Magic.

She goes on to write ...

Here’s the best part – or one of the best parts. Let’s say I’m on the homepage of Pinterest, and I come across a picture I like. I can A) “Like” the picture. This basically means I’m giving a nod to the person who pinned it. My name gets attached to the bottom of the page showing that I liked the image. But NOTHING gets placed on my actually boards for future reference. I tend to “like” a lot of images because Pinterest is very much a community. It’s a virtual high five… if high fives were still cool.

If you REALLY LOVE what you are seeing, you could B) “Repin” the picture to one of your boards.

You can have a billion boards. I started out with maybe 5 or so, but now I’m spanning out to include everything I adore – trees, beaches, cute puppies – you name it!

If you repin a picture, it is forever logged on one of your boards and all your friends will see that pic. It’s an amazing way to express your likes and interests with your friends and followers.

Feel like leaving a comment? Then C is your choice. You can respond to a pinner and let them know your thoughts on their image. Again – community feel. Truth be told, I rarely comment…

Below is a list with links to store coupon policies and price matching policies.  It is a good thing to have these printed and stored in your binder or file that you take in the store with you just in case there are questions as to how a certain coupon can be used legitimately.   It is also a good thing to familiarize yourself with the store coupon policies prior to going into the store so you know what stores will accept and what they will not.  Some stores have been cutting down on the acceptance of IP (Internet Printable) coupons due to widespread fraud.
