(SurvivalDaily.com) – Typically, most people just throw their kitchen scraps away, which is completely fine. However, they could regrow and reuse those same scraps instead of buying more. After all, why spend money when you don’t have to?
Before you get started regrowing your kitchen scraps, know that you can’t use too much water because the food will get moldy or slimy; only about a half inch of water is necessary. Match the size of the water container to whatever you’re attempting to regrow; certain foods grow better in certain containers. Be sure that you check on the water every couple of days to ensure the water level is sufficient.
Here are some kitchen scraps you can start regrowing right now:
- Bean sprouts
- Bok choy
- Garlic chives
- Green onion
While you can’t regrow actual carrots, you can regrow the carrot tops, which are great in soups or salads. There are many different foods you can regrow after their use in the kitchen. This list is only a small number of them.
In addition to regrowing your kitchen scraps, you can upcycle other items to help you save even more money. Check out these items you can upcycle; they may just come in handy one day.
