stop wasting food

Burp of the Poor

“I never look at the masses as my responsibility. I look at the individual. I can love only one person at a time. I can feed only one person at a time. Just one, one, one.” Mother Teresa

In some cultures a burp is considered a sign that the guest has enjoyed the meal and is full. We must have once in our lifetime burped after a heavy delicious meal but have you ever heard or seen a poor person taking a burp or even enjoying a full meal. The amount of food that is wasted by a person in a day might be a full day meal for a family. We might even crave for a mid night snacking option to go on but for the poor it is the craving which cannot be fulfilled during a lifetime.

We can follow our diet to stay fit and healthy even if we choose from a variety of diets available like the keto diet and intermittent fasting which are mainly focusing on restricting the calories . But one diet a poor person follows during his lifetime is poverty and the food he earns doesn’t even fulfill the calories necessary for his survival needs

So what contribution can we make to at least fill one’s stomach. The answer is simple ” By Saving Food “, the amount of food wasted in the world accounts to around ⅓ rd of the food produced in the world which is around 1.3 billion tonnes of food. This much amount of food saved is enough for us to save the lives of millions of people dying from hunger. 

Another option is eating mindfully, you might be thinking that it is a pretty obvious thing to do but have you ever counted the number of times you eat something perhaps not. Eating mindfully not only is beneficial for our health but for saving food also, by eating mindfully we are able to eat only that much which is necessary for the body. By following this we are able to eat less and fulfill ourselves as well as save food enough to make it available for others.

Another common way is not to eat through eyes, it may sound funny but people do eat with eyes, they see the food which creates an illusional craving in their mind which prevents them from ordering or having more food than what is necessary. This leads to wasting of food. You are eating or planning to eat but have you ever thought to provide food for someone, if not then try doing it. 
By taking little steps towards saving food we can not only make our habits and lifestyle better but also reduce the amount of food wasted which can be available to feed someone who is in need of it. 
This much food saved might be enough for a BURP OF THE POOR.
