Everyone acts shocked and outraged at how much food we waste, where “we” could mean Americans or humans in general.
Then they act like I’m weird for eating fruit’s peels. Citrus fruit peels contain all the fiber and nearly all the vitamin C of the fruit. They’re happy to eat it when slathered with sugar and fat, so they don’t have a problem eating it when turned into doof.
I’m not saying fruit peels are the biggest source of waste, but how can people point fingers at others so quickly without realizing they are accusing themselves? Did past generations waste so profligately?
Maybe I’m just grumpy from how much litter I see and pick up every day, and the mindsets behind the huge numbers of people who must pollute to attain levels we see.
