National Resources Defense Council: New Meal Prep Tool Helps Users Save Food, Money, Environment . “Users can choose to build their own customized plan or use one of Meal Prep Mate’s existing plans, with vegan and vegetarian options available for both options. Users who choose to follow an existing Meal Prep Mate plan will share the number of people eating and the number of days they are planning to eat. From there, they will receive a tailored shopping list and pre-designed recipes—developed by registered dietitian Rebecca Ditkoff, culinary producer Clare Langan and Save The Food experts—for nutritious, accurately portioned breakfast, lunch and dinner meals, all of which rely on one set of ingredients.” I felt weird about including this. It seems a bit off from what I usually put in here. But I can so easily imagine librarians putting this on a resource list for families who want to generate less waste or who are on a tight budget. So in it goes.
