Throwing Away Food

Thursday, May 17, 2018

I love jelly beans and it's the treat that I make sure I include in my calorie planning every day. So when the Easter candy was on sale, I bought some Swedish Fish jelly beans that I thought would be like mini Swedish Fish. Swedish Fish candy are awesome but I usually don't eat them because they're big so I can only have a few pieces per serving.

So the Swedish Fish jelly beans are not like the regular Swedish Fish and they're a little sour. They're not bad but I prefer regular jelly beans if I'm going to have a sweet treat.

But now I have this bag and I don't want to finish it. I feel guilty throwing it away but I'd prefer not to eat it and no one else in my family would.

I feel so wasteful throwing away food but I have to think about my calorie goals and what fits in my plan. It always comes back to me being responsible for what foods I put in my mouth which leads to what foods I keep in my pantry.

So if I choose not to eat it, there's no reason to keep it. OK, decision made. It's going in the trash.
