1,193 - Reducing Food Waste

March 25th, 2016

Episode 377 of 489 episodes

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
