'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.' ~Adelle Davis
In the western world one third of all food purchased in households is thrown away. Much of this food discarded is actually in date and perfectly useable. In England alone we're told that 1.3 million cartons of yoghurt are thrown out each day. Such wastage of food can best be described as shocking and a sad reflection on all of us. It's not that we can point the finger of blame at others. We've all been there and we've all thrown food carelessly out. We live in abundance whereas in many parts of the world its survival on little and nothing.
Some key questions -
Do I throw out food?
Do I buy and cook more than I need?
Do I give in to so called special offers in supermarkets and stuff I don't want?
We thank God for the food we eat each day, food that is our lifeline, nourishing and wholesome. May we never waste it or take it for granted.
