We are indeed much more than what we eat, but ;what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are.
Day 25 — thankful for my food
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
J. R. Tolkien
Every household is guilty of a lot of food waste per year. This can work out to be a lot of money lost over a year's time. Much food is discarded is in date and perfect;ly useable. The lock down throughout the year hasn’t helped in that as we tend to buy more to reduce our visits to the stores.
We’ve all been there and we’ve all thrown out food without thinking of the bigger picture. We live in abundance whereas many parts of the world survives on little and nothing.
A simple tip before we go shopping is to check our food cupboard and make a list of what we needed then buy only what we need. Shops have many special offers, but usually of stuff we normally would not buy.
I thank God for the food we eat each day, food that is our lifeline, Nourishing and wholesome. May we never waste or take it for granted.
There is no love sincerer than the love of food.
George Bernard Shaw
