[Some thoughts from a recent conversation.]
MLE’s been a self-labeled “pizza crust snob” for most of her life; unless it tasted especially good, it went in the compost, or far more likely, in the bin. She’s been trying to change that as part of her effort to be more mindful of what she eats and to waste less.
Other thoughts on food snobbery and wastefulness came up in our discussion. What about:
- Eating something else because you just don’t feel like what’s available and needs to be eaten sooner and thus, what needed to be eaten goes off.
- Throwing away the ends of a loaf of bread (the heels) or cutting off the crusts.
- Not buying a can of food because it has a dent in it or the label has a tear.
- Neglecting to follow the adage, “Take what you need and eat what you take.”
