If You Eat It, And You Don'T Need It, It'S Still A Waste!

This Sparked Me!

When I was little it was "eat everything on your plate!" Now my Mom says "if you don't need it... put it in a container and save it for later!" I actually did this when I was living with a host family that served us. I would save the extra food that I didn't need and eat it the next morning for breakfast or the next afternoon for lunch. Saves a lot of calories and it saves preparing another meal (or at least part of one)! Good luck and good eating!

    Hahahaha! That is so true. When my mom gave me the line about starving children, I'd offer to mail the food to them. Too bad she got really mad at me and MADE me eat it. emoticon
