Waste not, want not! Learn how to talk about food you can eat, and food you can’t, in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:25 Explanations: 3:16 Fast dialog: 16:45 Jon: Wait! What are doing with that squishy tomato? Marta: I’m tossing it. It’s no good anymore. Jon: I’ll take it, and I’ll take that stale bread, too. Marta: Stop! You can’t fish that out of the trash. Jon: I’m trying to do my part to reduce food waste. Tired vegetables are still okay to eat, as are bruised fruit. Marta: Fine, but not once they’ve been discarded. Stay out of my trash. Jon: What you are going to do with this graying meat? Marta: I was going to throw that out, too. Jon: I’ll take it. I’m sure I can make something edible with it. Marta: You can’t be serious. I’m all for doing my part, but I draw the line at eating spoiled meat. Jon: It’s not spoiled. It’s just beyond the peak of freshness. Marta: Well, be my guest. You can have all of this food. Jon: And to show my thanks, I’ll invite you over to lunch tomorrow. Marta: Thanks, but no thanks. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
