You likely have an invisible, costly, and tasty problem in your home -- it's food waste! The average household throws out $1,100 of perfectly good food every year! If your fridge is filled with good intentions, but you still manage to garbage your groceries, this episode could help you save hundreds, even thousands of dollars every year. Angela Cooper, PhD, an Associate at BEworks, is a behavioral scientist with the recipe for reducing food waste.
"One of the interesting things about this program is its simplicity. It's not that we have some new fangled gadget or a really complex procedure to help reduce your food waste. Let's just give you a different way of thinking about what you've got -- it's food math in a way," says Angela.
In this episode Angela unlocks our food wasting habits and shares with science-backed research how small, simple steps can turn these costly behaviors into sustainable actions. Plus you'll save money and may reduce your grocery bill too. @squawkfox @beworks
