A few months ago I decided to share my Clear Out And Eat philosophy over on Instagram and I am so glad I did. The feedback has been great. I have really enjoyed seeing your photos and reading how you’ve made something from nothing, used up rather than thrown out or invented a delicious new dish by throwing together what you had in the fridge.
Last week both Nicola from Simply Homemade and I posted our left over goat’s cheese meals. If you haven’t checked out the hashtag #clearoutandeat yet, then do. You are bound to be inspired when you read the background stories of these meals.
Bear in mind though that these are photos of real food meant to be eaten straight away by hungry families. It is not styled or prettied up. It is good food – real food – for real families who are conscious of the amount of food waste that goes on in this world and who are trying to do their bit to reduce waste.
Since we are in the run up to Christmas now, it seems only right that I run a little giveaway to say thanks for the support and for tackling food waste in your own homes, educating your children on the issue and using your creativitiy to make the most out of the ingredients you have at hand.
Speaking of creativity, Emily from TheNest.ie has joined forces a with me for this giveaway. Have you seen her beautiful hand-illustrated, spiral bound notebooks? They are so pretty, I have bought myself several as well as her Book of Days for 2017. I liked them so much when I saw them a few weeks ago that I bought one for you too!
