Wall of food shame 2013

It is quite educating to have a list of all the food that went bad and has been thrown away. 2013 saw these things gone beyond edibility:

  • 6 apples
  • 1 pear
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 150g toast
  • 200g cooked cereal and smoked tofu
  • 200ml joghurt
  • 2 garlic bulbs
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 2 naan breads (before I discovered that I shouldn’t be a wuss; these things are vacuum-packed and last quite a while)
  • 1 citron
  • 1/2 portion curry and rice
  • 1/2 pineapple
  • 100g smoked tofu


Most of it went bad during a heat wave (I wanted to eat nothing at all). Fruit on the other hand, if not taken from its packaging immediately after bringing home, tended to get mouldy.

I hope I’m able to reduce this amount of wasted nom next year.
