Recipes with leftover food
Food is one essential thing which comes in the top list category of air, water which is very much essential to the survival of a human being. Without food, we can't survive and food is one source from where we get energy to our body.
For Some people in this world, food as health source to body or tasty and delicious foods which satisfy their taste buds. But for some people to whom food is one which they hardly get , if they get anything to eat they think it’s great …they won't think about the type of food, veg, non-veg, tasty, favorite they like to eat on that situation and just they want to fill their stomach.
The value of food changes from person to person….but here we won’t forget that the food whatever we eat or comes to our plate who may be rich or poor his/her food is raised or grown by the same farmers who toil very hardly irrespective of hot, cold or rainy weather, the farmer never look all these aspects he works for the soil and work for his family.
According to one study about half of the food which is produced on the planet about 2 million tons are wasted before it is reaching to any needy. In this race, the Americans are in lead in wasting food as per the survey by the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation.
Coming to India and Indians in the survey we get to know that we waste the food as much as the United Kingdom consumes. And this figure it shocks us when we know that in India too many people are there who don’t even get stomach full of food once a day.
In India over 20 crore people out of 130 crore sleep without having a proper food or not getting food, why all these scenarios and surveys I am explaining because here in India people are wasting food every day, even some people think wasting food is not a big issue and it shows their status about how wealthy they are and they have enough food and money to do whatever they want.

We can see in India wasting food in the functions like marriage, birthday party, and big occasions etc. In this time we prepare varieties of food and people fill their plate like they will eat everything but by the end they won’t finish half the food and they leave the rest of it in the plate without having it and many people do this without feeling any guilt and shame.
But according to me and by looking at the condition of our poor 20 crore Indians, wasting food and water is like a crime. By having knowledge how important food is to survive more than how effort fully those food grains are grown by the farmers after that also wasting food is like sin.
Here I like to share with you all some of the tips to avoid wasting food
