Few things make me so angry as food waste - so these initiatives are always welcome!

at home i have one of those food wastage bins and i was shocked at how much i threw away last night! feel very annoyed at myself that i over bought which was greedy and didn't do anything with the food until it went out of date!

Will selling food at 25p mean that we will now resort to cheaper more unhealthy food? Don't get me wrong what Stelios is doing great for the supermarket industry and it helps people living below the poverty line but how we can the quality of the food be nutritional when food inflation is constantly going up! http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr…aji-iannou

When we tell the kids to turn off the tap while brushing their teeth is just to create attention to the problem.

I have so much pumpkin and not nearly enough ideas about what to do with it...

PIEPIEPIEPIE IN MY FACE THIS THANKSGIVING

There has been a real rise in Indian Tapas cuisines across the UK. One restaurant that is cooking up a flavorsome storm with it's use of modern and traditional spices & ingredients is Papa J's in Luton & Milton Keynes. The lamb dishes are the one the most tender i ever tried so what is their secret? any ideas into cooking the perfect lamb for a curry? #food #indiancusines #tenderlamb .

Yep, had the left-overs yesterday and somehow it seemed hotter than the first time. Happily soured cream came to the rescue

Apparently it's #WorldFoodDay - here's a recipe for vegetarian curry that somehow comes with a woman in the thumbnail. Being #vegetarian - even just for one meal a week - saves resources and helps with climate change as well as overall food poverty.

So something that's tastier than bland tofu is definitely a good idea!

That's hilarious! She's wearing 'fake fur' which is usually rabbit or cat even though the label reads synthetic. Perhaps they're not aware.

I get fake meat but why on earth would you want to wear 'fake corpse'?

Fiona that's a great shout! thanks

Tuna tacos! After my initial "What, fish in tacos??" scepticism... I had to go back for more the next day.

We simply fried up some diced tuna steak, threw it in with a taco spice mix, refried beans, home-made guac, and salsa. I would absolutely recommend giving this a crack.

I don't eat fish but I know enough to be worried about the 'salt' part of that equation...I think you're going to have to force my husband to eat these at Thanksgiving so I can vicariously experience the results

Salt? These are not terribly salty, the saltiest part is the refried beans (one day I'll get around to doing this home made, and that'll reduce it a lot).
Any reason
you don't eat fish?
Hmm, they're not the most festive... I was thinking of attempting a vegan pumpkin pie though?

I'm going to make those acorns again and try and make sure nobody eats all of them before you do. And fish stare at you with their unblinking dead eyes. Also, you know, all the death. Of everyone. 'Deadliest Catch' should not have a mortality rate :(

It's almost like they created this just for lazy #vegetarian weekends. VERY hot but I'm happy with the lack of effort.

I went to Flesh and Buns in Convent Garden and the Korean fried wings and S'mores were amazing! Very much recommend people to go in a group and try the tasting menu #fleshandbuns #food

There's a really great vegetarian Korean restaurant that I love in New York (Hangawi) - with a name like "Flesh and Buns" I'm guessing this one isn't vegetarian though! :)

I will have to try Hangawi, The vegetarian menu is limited at Flesh and Buns but our waitress recommend we try the Miso grilled aubergine and that was lovely!
