Were you cajoled into eating everything on your plate because your parents led you to believe there was some value in being a member of the Clean Plate Club?
Or maybe you were encouraged to eat more than you wanted because somehow by doing that you were helping starving children in China or Appalachia. Or you were supposed to eat everything on your plate because unlike them, you should be grateful you had food on your plate!
Now that you’re an adult, do you still feel compelled to eat everything on your plate because you feel guilty “wasting” food, even if it means feeling too full and overeating? And gaining unhealthy pounds?
I’m not a proponent of being wasteful, but in this week’s episode, I discuss why putting food into your body when you’ve eaten enough is actually worse than throwing it away. A lot worse!
Listen to learn why it is time to rethink those beliefs about wasting food that were drummed into you as a child.
Also, I discuss some ideas that you can use to avoid “wasting” food without substituting your body for the trash.

Hi Shari, It’s every hard for me to throw food away. Yes, childhood. Mom was a widow, we were on a strict budget. Now with knowledge of food-borne illnesses etc, I find it easier to toss. In Iowa, I could throw bread crusts to the critters in my yard. I can’t even do that now!
