I love HFG, and read every issue from cover to cover. However, I have to tell you I think the tip in Think Yourself Slim (Dec issue) to ‘resign from the clean plate club’ is not actually good advice. Our family are very proud of not wasting any food at all – we grow most of our fruit and vegetables on two allotments, and any peelings, leaves, stalks, etc are composted, ready to enrich the soil from where they came. I cook what we need and when we’ve eaten, our plates are clean. We have five children and if each of us left a few bites on each of our seven plates, three times every day for 365 days a year, that would mean a) I was cooking too much food (bad planning) and b) all that extra food could have fed poorer or homeless families for a very long time. I can see where your advice was coming from, but we could NOT live with our consciences if we did that.
