Ends+Stems is a meal planning tool that tells you what to cook! And, we do it in a way that reduces your food waste and saves money! I’m Chef Alison and I built Ends+Stems after my friends and community kept saying over and over “just tell me what to cook for dinner!” It turns out, that cooking isn’t the most stressful part, it’s deciding what to buy and cook that is overwhelming. It’s that hidden mental workload we carry. In addition, as a mom and a chef, I’m very concerned about the health of our planet and making sure my kids will grow up with clean air, water, and the cornucopia of foods I have known. Reports say that over 40% of food produced in the U.S. is wasted, and most of it, in our own homes. Parents care about this waste of food and money, but we’re often too busy for a sustainable overhaul. Considering these intermingling concerns, I designed Ends+Stems to help ease weeknight stress by writing delicous, quick, easy to cook recipes that fit together each week to use up everything you buy. The interactive grocery list makes shopping your favorite stores a breeze. The low subscription cost quickly pays for itself in reduced food waste!
