"For some, leftovers are associated with poverty. For others, they signify a treasure that is not to be wasted. It seems that people either love leftovers or hate them.

"After a meal, what do you do with the leftovers? Do you consistently eat more than you want to avoid leftovers and feel guilty about doing it? Do you cringe at the idea of reheated food? Or do you find ways of combining your leftovers to make a new and unique meal? In this sense, leftovers may tell you more about yourself and your willingness to adapt.

"Even if you cannot stand to eat leftovers, you can still find a way to offer the food to others. A gift of food to another is always appreciated with love and joy."
