Don't throw out that odd-shaped piece of fruit. A new movement called "love ugly food" wants you to change your behavior and embrace the ugly.
"It's staggering," said Food & Wine Editor-In-Chief Dana Cowin, that "so much food goes to waste in this country just because of its size, shape, color and appearance."
A Natural Resources Defense Council study recently found that as much as 40 percent of the food supply in the U.S. goes uneaten. Meanwhile, 20 percent of all produce is wasted in the U.S. because shoppers think it's not "perfect" in appearance.
In an interview with CNBC's "On The Money," Cowin said people should change their thinking. She argued that ugly and disfigured food will taste just as good as the picture-perfect kind.
"They're tossed because they're imperfect just in the way they look, not the way they taste," Cowin said.
