Reduce, reuse, recycle food?

One big thing my husband and I have noticed about eating paleo is that we hardly waste any food.
In the past we were constantly throwing away food. Veggies, meat, leftovers, all in the trash.
It was kinda sad, but I guess we never really thought about it all that much.
We do not eat out half as much as we used to. I love making big healthy dinners so that we both have leftovers for lunch the next day. My husband and I are often on opposite schedules so we always need leftovers. We also spend more money on healthy food so it’s painful to throw our food/money in the garbage. Plus, the food we have been cooking and eating tastes delicious! Why wouldn’t we eat it??

So the point I guess that I am getting to is: your leftovers don’t have to be boring. You can “reuse” or “recycle” them to make something else, which is “reducing” food waste.
Here’s a great example from this past week.

My husband bbq’d this delicious tritip. He made a dry rub with coconut sugar, salt and pepper, and whatever paleo friendly spices he could find. I roasted a butternut squash with s&p and oil&balsamic as a side dish.

The next night we had about 1/2 of the tritip left over.
I cut it up into cubes, put it in a pan, poured salsa and a little water on top and let it simmer down until most of the liquid was gone. I made a batch of paleo tortillas, sliced some fresh avacado and we ate delicious beef tacos for dinner! Yum!


The next morning we still had meat and tortillas leftover. I scrambled up some eggs with the meat, wrapped it all in a tortilla and had a breakfast burrito for breakfast!


That’s 3 completely different meals from one tritip!

Shredded crockpot pork makes great leftover meals too. Plain with sides, tacos, nachos, breakfast scrambles.
I often double casseroles and “rice” dishes also to eat throughout the week. The easier you make it for yourself, the more you will enjoy eating this way. My advice is, cook often, make a lot, and be creative with your leftovers! And don’t forget to HAVE FUN!
