What Will You Do With That Leftover Bread? [Infographic]
When it comes to repurposing leftover bread, I’m a loser. I could freeze it. Make bread crumbs. Feed the birds. But I don’t. Which is why this infographic from Sustainable America caught my attention.
It reports that Americans buy 3 billion loaves of bread a year, 25% of which ends up in the garbage. And it gives you 10+ clever ways you can stop this waste in your kitchen — from traditional ideas like making croutons, bread pudding, or bread crumbs to more inspiring uses like feeding your plants, keeping your veggies fresh, or using those damn heels to make dog treats. (Wouldn’t your pups be oh-so-happy to help you avoid human food waste?)
Take a look. How much leftover bread do you toss (while having the best of intentions to transform it but lacking the time to do so)? Does this give you any new ideas?
