>> a lot of things i actually didn't know, i found out about the eat safe campaigns, you know that 40% of the food is thrown away because it doesn't look a certain way. it's crazy, like just because the apple is not the right size it's not accepted. so it's amazing the food that gets thrown away because it doesn't look a certain way. none of us here look the same. you know, we are a part of nature. nobody is wonderful. food should look, in my garden, all my carrots look like, they are all really crooked, but they taste delicious, you know.
>> we got to make some efficient choices at home, learn to use things to their fullest. that's what we are here to do today.
>> we will make this whole chicken , use every last bit of it. let's start with the roasted chicken .
>> depending where you live, in between, so you can break a chicken , very quickly, like that. and with it we are going to do three meals for four people. so it cost about 30 cents. it's quick to cut the chicken . the best part of the chicken will go, for example in a rice and chicken .
>> what are you serving it with there, basil?
>> chicken and cilantro. then the rest of the meat, giselle will show us.
>> we have apples, onions, a little of mai-maii -- mayonaise.

>> so when have you the bones of the chicken , you can use the bones, put them in a pot, some water. then you are going to boil the bones and the water for an hour.
>> you will get a lot of flavor.
>> ten you can add carrots, cellry, after straining the broth, you can make with newsles, a nice chicken soup for four people. so we did rice and chicken , pita sandwiches with chicken . now we have a noodle soup .
>> no waste at all.

>> the great thing about it as well, there is so much going on when are you a mom, you have to rush through things. can you freeze the soup. you can eat it like later, you know what i mean ? so it tastes actually better. i like food after it's been frozen. it almost feels like it's more flavor.
>> like the soup.
