RE: Thinking critically about food waste
I'll respond with something they say in the Army: I don't care how much you eat, but you'll eat what you take.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

RE: Thinking critically about food waste
I try to not waste food which isn't a problem considering that I buy it only for myself. As for other people I care not - not my money so I don't have issue with it.

Children in Africa - it is idiotic statement in my opinion. No matter what I do with food here it don't have any effect on them. I also won't be eating something that taste bad cause "others don't have even this".

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

The consumption habits in the US are pretty disgusting. I try as much as I can to only purchase whatever food we can consume before it spoils, beyond things like canned food, of which we consume very little. I'm thinking that we should stock up, to some extent; in case of emergency it would be better than starving.

Sorry to hear that. Sad

There's a guy in my home town that helps feed the homeless. He works with local fishing tournament organizers to get the Marlin and other fish that would normally go to waste. A solid dude, he never pushes religion.

RE: Thinking critically about food waste
My S.O. has the "depression era" mentality about it.... If there's two teaspoons of rice left - she puts it into a bowl in the fridge --- where it awaits -- till it's "good and dead". Then and only then may it get a proper burial..............

Me - it's simple economics. I'm not saving 3 cents worth of corn - so I can eat it later - thus letting 5 bucks worth of something else go bad........

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Don`t be a pessimist bro, I leave my plate half-full, not half-empty.

RE: Thinking critically about food waste
we split a takeout order from a teriyaki place last week. That was perfect. I suspect we will do more things like that.

RE: Thinking critically about food waste
Whether food waste goes into the trash can or the toilet makes little difference to me. I eat until I'm satisfied and not a bite more.

RE: Thinking critically about food waste
I raise my own veggies, and I always plant several varieties of each type because you never know what may go wrong and which plants will be affected that year.

If I have a lot left over, I take it to the local old folk hang out and they help themselves to it.

Much of the time I just compost extras and use them as fertilizer the next year.

A friend recently accused me of wasting food.

Huh? These are annual plants, the food comes from my soil and it goes back in there to help support the next year's crop. Personally, I see no waste. But I suppose that's a matter of opinion.
