Throw Out Your Leftovers Day

Throw Out Your Leftovers Day

Let’s face the truth, most of our refrigerators are in a dark and dreary basement that is reserved for the brave. It’s easy to travel here and find moldy graves of food that have been forgotten. If you’re in the US these Thanksgiving Leftovers are ready to go to their death in the deep pit that is your trash can. Throw out your leftovers day reminds us that healthy food can thrive in a clean refrigerator.

There is an epidemic throughout the year of food that has been stored in the refrigerator and left to rot in plastic containers and on saran wrap plates.

It was not an accident that leftovers began to suffer this fate. The problem lies in poor food preparation and shopping habits. It can be difficult to prepare enough food for everyone in your household or group. We aren’t taught how to do this so we overcompensate to ensure that there is enough. Instead of accumulating too much food, we keep it in the refrigerator and forget about it.

Next is the notion that the food is no longer good for consumption. This is a common fallacy. Just look at pizza! It’s the best leftover food for tomorrow! Throw Out Your Leftovers Day offers the perfect opportunity for you to get rid of all the leftover food in your fridge and to also eliminate the bad habits that lead to it.

You need to start with the basics. Get rid of all food and junk from your fridge. Once you have this in place, it is time to change old habits. You should be aware of any habits that involve buying food in bulk. While there is nothing wrong with getting a deal, you need to take care when it comes to preparing the food. Consider how much food you have left, and then reduce the amount of preparation. This will reduce leftovers and save you money on food!
