Dying in Vain

Waiter Rant has a new post that says all I've ever wanted to say about wasting food. Please go there and read it.

It makes me crazy to throw away food. It's one of the reasons I don't shop weekly or bi weekly. I shop almost every three days. I don't know what I'll want to eat from day to day and it makes me crazy to see food just rot away in the fridge. But even more than vegetables, I do not like wasting meat. Meat was once an animal. An animal that was placed here for our benefit. It is like wasting them and spoiling our stewardship over them when you let meat rot and just throw it away. We should all be more mindful of this kind of waste.
