Interesting that saving food would be "weird". People would be astounded, really, by the amount of food they throw away, little bits at a time.

For anyone who thinks that saving two green beans is weird, I challenge you to, instead of throwing the edible food in the trash, to put it in a freezer container. You probably don't even realize how much is wasted.


Yes, I agree.

 

I will admit though, I'd personally probably avoid a dairy dip that may or may not have sat out for hours, But I don't think it's weird for people to try not to waste it.

My friend makes amazing salsa, and among our group there is no way a single drop of the salsa is going to waste. We generally convene the day after a party just to enjoy the leftover salsa and guac.

 

Saving two green beans is hard for me to imagine because honestly, I would just scarf them down. It's nice to know other people have more self control and recognize when they are full and put the food away.

seriously i dont. i looooooooooooove street food. and discovered the more germs the tastier it is :wink

 

i think my attitude is coz i rarely fall sick. i dont care about dirt and germs. instead i care about chemicals and other nasty additives.

interesting perspective.

 

i rarely get sick either, even when working with a large number of sick children and i always ascribed it to my diet of whole, organic, unprocessed food and proper precautions like washing my food before i eat it, and washing my hands when around ill people. i don't doubt my body's ability to protect me from most bacteria/viruses, but i do like to do practical things to lower my exposure. like not eating leftover dip that has been shared among lots of people that i don't know, left to sit out for hours, and then brought to my house several days later.

 

to each their own i guess. :D
