  1. The home-scale freeze dryers are a great option for those who are concerned about food waste. Stored properly, the raw or cooked food will last from 10 to 25 years! Harvest Right has some models that don't cost that much more than a high-end home refrigerator.

    Freezing is another easy option. We have found that a lot of fresh veggies freeze just fine raw, tightly wrapped. Keep the freezer as cold as it will go, and keep food away from the sides that are warmed by the frost-free cycle.

    For meats and other foods we plan to store awhile, we prefer a freezer without a frost-free cycle. Since we only open it once a week or two just to grab whatever we plan to use in the next week or so, which we transfer to the freezer compartment of the refrigerator in the kitchen, the 'deep freeze' almost never needs to be defrosted.

    Defrosting is not difficult, either. Some models will drain via a hose right into the drain in the floor of your basement or garage, so all you have to do is transfer any food into the freezer compartment of your 'frige, or into a cooler with ice or freezer packs, and let the ice melt and drain. Wipe the interior clean, plug it back in, and you are good to go.

  2. It seems like a quality meal kit delivery service could be much better than eating out at the typical chains – in terms of health, a market for family farmers (if this is real and not marketing baloney), flavor, and cost. Or buying heat-and-serve packaged foods

    But how difficult is it really to plan a few meals a week? People used to WANT leftovers – as the base for additional meals, things like bone broth, soups, casseroles, savory pies, lunches, etc, etc!

    As someone else said, it is much better to support your local farmers, and buy your produce, eggs, and meat locally. From real people, growing food by working with nature, instead of fighting against it with machinery and chemicals.

  3. Prevent mindless waste, support your local farmers by buying fresh from a farmers market. Blue Apron poaches customers from these people, which is not cool. Do we really need another monopoly in this country
