I'd Rather See Food be Wasted in the Garbage Than On My Body


Yesterday Kent threw away all the Easter candy our kids collected last week. I was surprised how hard that was for me. I didn't want it to be "wasted." I even considered saving it to give away at Halloween instead haha. In reality, I think I just wanted to eat it even though I know it's harmful to my body and won't give me any nutrients. Both kids got sick after eating too much candy on Easter and we didn't even give them any ourselves. I think it's hard to get over the paradigm that wasting anything is bad, but if it's edible garbage, it's going to go to waste no matter where you put it.
