Mostly, I don't want to give them negative food issues by making them eat something when they are no longer hungry. I'm not giving them the guilt trip that "there are starving kids in Poland" that I got as a kid growing up. But, that's an issue for another post entirely.
So, this last week's waste included:
- 1 apple - I had cut it up and left it on the counter in a container for far too many days before I was going to get around to eating it
- 3 slices of turkey - this was actually from before the Food Waste Challenge started that I forgot to get rid of and have been dutifully ignoring
- I'm sure there will be more lettuce casualties soon, but I'm ignoring it for now
