I always hear from my mother, “do not waste food.” She is indeed right. Foods are blessings from God, not to be wasted but to be shared and enjoyed.
If you remember the bible story when Jesus feeds the 5000, Jesus thought us not to waste anything. Even if He can recreate the miracle of food production, He did not consider those foods less important.
“When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” —John 6:12
With that in mind, I do all my best to cook enough (not too much) for a family of three. Any leftover will definitely not go to bin. New recipe can be made out of yesterday’s food if not serve again.
