Frugal and sustainable habits in the kitchen

Peanut butter is trending on Instagram, in particular it is the peanut butter that’s cruddy and left behind on the bottom of the jar. Food & Sustainability author, Puneeta Chhitwal-Varma, goes back on CTV’s The Social and joins Jess Allen and Cynthia Loyst on October 20th to take this trend many steps further.

In this segment, Puneeta shows how people can adapt two of the tenets of sustainability to use what we have and to reuse the rest, and regain control of their fridge, all at the same time.

Creative ways to use every last bit from almost empty jars in the fridge.

Call it being sustainable, frugal or plain old savvy, dealing with the those almost-empty jars lined up in the back of the fridge will feel like a huge relief. And the big bonus? You’ll end up with interesting, delicious food.
