04-19 Leftovers
Today's post is dedicated to the unglamorous, but equally important side of lunching.  Waste makes me feel horrible.  Wasted space, wasted time, wasted food, wasted anything.  And while I know it's a dieting no-no (well, I'm not on a diet) I try hard to eat everything I'm served, because I imagine all uneaten food going into the dumpster, and I feel guilty and unthankful. Recent studies show that anywhere from 30-50% of the food produced in the States or the world goes to waste.  That just makes me want to cry.  So should there be leftovers in the fridge, I'm rather diligent about eating them over the course of days, so as to not have to throw them away.  I thought about compiling all the food onto a nice plate for the photo, but that would require additional water to clean the plate, so I bagged that idea too.
