When I was a little kid, my mom would always remind me to finish all my food.
She’d tell me that there were a lot of kids who didn’t eat three times a day like I did. This thought stuck with me during my childhood days and I have carried this thought up to now.
I never waste food and I don’t like food getting wasted and thrown into the trash although I still have my those moments.
Every time I see food in the trash, I always think of not only the story my mom used to tell me but also the money that goes in the drain.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) commission study, about one-third of produced food in the world – approximately 1.3 billion tons – for human consumption gets lost or wasted every year.
Reduce Food Waste With PlateJoy
With the everyday hustle and bustle of life, it’s understandable that things like not recycling and food waste can happen.
Sometimes no matter how hard we try or how sincere our intentions are, we can get caught up and lose sight of what matters.
It’s not so easy to avoid wasting food. If it was easy, then, there would be little to no food waste.
Do thousands of dollars per year on food waste sound about right?
If you’re busy like other people are and waste food unintentionally, but want to change that routine and want to save food and money, there’s a solution to that.
It’s call PlateJoy! It’s not a magic or an illusion.

How does this help your busy life, reduce your food waste, and your pocket?
Not only do you get a tailored meal plan based on your lifestyle to take the work out of prepping and cooking, but PlateJoy also creates recipes for you based on what you already have in your pantry and refrigerator.
