In response to our joke about leftovers, a smarty pants reader brings up a practical if nerdington point. Respect.
in macrobiotics (or a fair bit of cooking with whole foods) leftovers can save a considerable amount of cooking + prep time each week - I’m beginning to learn how to leverage this concept..
..it also seems to me that if you were used to having leftover food at the end of each meal, it would reduce any desire to “clean your plate” - and by this I mean the desire to finish eating one’s meal simply because you don’t want to let it go to waste - by using leftovers regularly, you needn’t worry about wasting, now do you?
