    This is a website being promoted in my workplace, it gives some great recipes and ideas about using things up in the kitchen. They advise on meal planning and things like best before dates. Very informative

    That potato, bacon and feta omelette looks fantastic I must try that

    Although i have to challenge the "everybody has left over potato in the house" idea. They've obviously never visited our house

    Interesting website.
    DS1 came home from school with a leaflet about food waste.

    The website gives lots of hints and tips about reducing the amount of food you eat, loads of recipes on cooking once and eating twice and what to make with leftovers. There's also a section on portion sizes.
