After we legally scrapped the Ford at DROF (now gone underneath the Olympic Park in East London) we had to walk. So we walked to the allotment along the Limehouse Cut, and we walked to the shops.
We now shop only what we can carry home. This means we shop more often (no weekly shop for us). Since I have the time, I often shop for food just for the day. This means that we tend to waste less... and of course food waste can go on the allotment compost heap.
If food is left, leftovers are good for the next day or the day after. Many dishes get better the second time around, notably fassoulada... or veggie curry, which may have new secrets to reveal.
The recipes for the two curries - aloo gobi and chana masala - are from Andy Murray's book The Heretic's Guide to Vegan Cookery which has sold out of the first edition and is now fetching high prices!
