To Eat Or Not To Eat

I looked into my freezer today and saw what has been sitting there for probably a long time, like at least the last year. I saw a bag of fries and a bag of tater tots. I love fries and tater tots and today I ate them. I guess my reasoning behind it was, I would rather not waste the food, then worry about my health for that particular moment. It's like when you are watching one of those shows where they are trying to get people healthy and they come into their house and just throw out everything.

I have been going way more "green" this year than I have ever before. It's a weird line separating wasting food, and trying to eat healthy. I do not like it when I waste food, and I do not like it when I do not eat healthy. Ok, I take that back, I don't mind when I don't eat healthy while I am not eating healthy, it's just after the fact that I am not so happy with myself. Also, I know that last statement sounds like some weird eating disorder, but I can safely assure all of you that it is not an eating disorder where I am just disgusted by myself and I purge all the sin out of my body.

I suppose the bottom line in all of this is to only keep healthy food in your house, and then when you are faced with the dilemma of not wanting to waste food, you won't have to choose an unhealthy option. No one is perfect, and we all probably will have or have junk food in your house at some point in time. I usually have junk food in my house, and probably will continue to have junk food in my house at any given time.

Moderation is the key to everything and like I tell everyone around me, there is a time and place for everything. Go ahead and eat those fries, depending on who you are talking to it might actually do you more harm to deny your self something want as opposed to just letting yourself eat it. We all need to take a little something for our selves every now and again, just don't over do it.

A lot of times you can donate the food you don't want. It seems a little bit cruel... but it's a good way to get rid of food you don't want, but not waste it.

That is a good thing to do, but it's hard with frozen food, such as the fries and the tater tots I ate.
