Food, Glorious Food.... Grateful for Food
"Food, glorious food, cold jelly and custard, while we're in the mood..." you know how it goes.
This week at 52 Weeks of Grateful, with Maxabella Loves it is all about being grateful for food. What a simple thing to stop and be grateful for.
How much do you take for granted having a fridge full of food, some of which you will throw out because you never got around to eating it? Is your pantry the same? Mine is.
This year, I am really trying to be mindful of the food we eat and using what we have in our fridge/freezer/pantry before running to the shops to but more supplies. This means some meal planning at times, and a little bit of creative cooking, but that's ok. It is kind of forcing me to get organised, which is a good thing.
It is such an affluent and wasteful society that we live in, sometimes it is hard to see the abundance that is around us, and not to waste it.
There are millions in the world that are starving, and wouldn't care that the apple has a spot on it, or that the banana is a bit "brown". Grateful for food Yes indeed I am.
So, I am grateful that I live in a country of plenty, that basically I can eat whatever I want. I am also grateful for the opportunity to sponsor a child through World Vision and help their community get food. Yes, truly I am grateful for food.
