Do you waste food?

I know personally we waste a lot of food. We always have leftovers and when they get put int he fridge they never get ate. Does anyone else consider yourself wasteful?

  • same thing here. I feel bad after dinner so I wrap up leftovers for the fridge knowing full well I will be throwing it all away. I hate it. I wish I could choose my own quantities at the store cuz most of the time, it's just tooo much for us to eat!!

  • We do, but I try not to. We have one set night per week that is "left over night" so most of them are eaten then.

  • I actually don't waste the food that is saved in the refrigerator. I try to use them up for lunch. What bothers me is how much food the kids waste. I try to make their plates in portion of what they will eat, but once it is on their plate, I won't save that. Sometimes I wonder why I bothered to give them anything at all if it wasn't touched? I can't say that my kids make bad food choices, because they like a lot of really good things, but dinner is the time where there is a lot wasted and it does bother me if I think about it.

  • Unfortunately yes, I am the only one who will eat leftovers in my house except for a very few things that hubby and ds will eat leftover.

  • We give them to our pets so it's not wasted, really.

  • We usually end up forcing ourselfs to eat the left overs, even though we don't want to....a fresh cooked meal usually just seems alot more appealing.....we do occasionally just throw them away after so long. Alot of times too, I find that the fresh veggies I buy go bad before we eat them, so they become a waste too :(
