A recently published study found that American consumers waste about one pound of food per day or 225-290 pounds per year. This means that roughly 20% of all food Americans put on their plates gets trashed every year.

Not overbuying is one way to reduce waste at home. However, meal planning plays a considerable part in the battle against wasted food. This meal plan limits the shopping list and includes staples you may already have in your pantry.
