Just SAY NO!

Beck card for the day:
say no to extra food
"Get rid of extra food. It'll be wasted in the trash can or in my body. Either way, it's wasted."
Well, I'm sure I'm not the only baby boomer who was told to clean my plate because there were "starving children in China". So this one is a toughie!
I have trouble throwing out food.
I have trouble leaving food on my plate.
The card is soooo true. If my body doesn't need the food, then it IS wasted when I eat it. And who, other than myself, designated me as the human garbage can?
I will consciously work to leave food on my plate.
I will consciously work to freeze or throw out leftovers.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm missing Vandal! So in his absence AND his honor, I'm going to take over his customary exit emoticon.
