Stop Eating My Children'S Leftovers

This Sparked Me!

Sure, the kids may have left a little on their plate but all those little leftovers sure add up! So I stay away from them. I don't feel guilty about throwing them out. My body is not a dumpster for leftovers!

    I hate throwing out good food, but I agree, it was a good day when I realized i was better off if I tossed the leftovers and saved my body.

Then again, other days I'll just eat their leftovers as my meal. For example, I'm too busy running around while serving my kids breakfast to eat anyway, and I KNOW there will be left over cereal and milk -- because they're just not coordinated enough to get all the cereal from the bowl. So I pour their bowls together and add whatever I still need for a full meal -- no leftover waste and no excess calories.
