The holidays are bearing down upon us with all the associated festivities: get-togethers, gift-giving, and grand meals with friends and family. No holiday feast seems complete without heaping portions and overstuffed bellies, so unfortunately our annual turkey day traditions often come with an extreme amount of food waste. But while these traits were once unique to Thanksgiving, it seems that at least some of our holiday excesses are finding their way into our daily routines. Can you guess just how much food American households are wasting year round? (The answer may shock you!)
