I have noticed something lately. When I go into the fridge I see all these little containers full of food. They are called leftovers. Perhaps you have heard of them? I had heard a rumor that such a thing was said to exist, but never before had I witnessed it first hand. Honestly, I have always cooked for an army. I usually make enough for 6 or 8 servings even though there are only 3 of us. The sad thing is that we never used to have leftovers. Since I have been keeping track of what I eat and eating portion sizes, I am absolutely AMAZED by how much food we still have. I am stunned by how much I was eating. I would not want to know how many calories I used to eat. It disgusts me to think about how much food I wasted by overeating. Shame on me. I feel ashamed. BUT at the same time I know that I have to let go of those negative feelings. I have to move on and forgive myself for those mistakes. I screwed up ALOT, but I can’t change the past. I can learn from it and move on. On the plus side, having leftovers means I always have something for lunch, and it means that I already know what the portion size is because I ate it the night before. There are definitely benefits to having leftovers.
