So the big day has come and gone and now you, as the host, have a fridge brimming with leftovers. How on EARTH are you meant to manage all of this food AND maintain your health journey?!
So the big day has come and gone and now you, as the host, have a fridge brimming with leftovers. How on EARTH are you meant to manage all of this food AND maintain your health journey?! For some of us, the temptation (especially for those chocolates and desserts!) can get the better of us, so instead of keeping the fridge stocked with everything, and allowing you the opportunity to potentially overeat – I’ve compiled a few little tips and tricks that I have learned over the years to prevent overeating for days after and food going to waste.
These are just a few ways that I would recommend dealing with leftovers. You can portion, store and freeze, just make sure that you keep track of how long it’s in the freezer or fridge for, as you don’t want to get sick.
There are also charities that will take your leftovers and ‘food scraps’ and take them to those in need, however, you will need to have had a business dinner or have a cafe, restaurant, or grocery store. Alternatively, you can look up your nearest food bank if you have unopened items or canned goods left over that you haven’t used.
Enjoy the big day as much as you can, and don’t worry about the leftovers until you need to – there are plenty of strategies to deal with them in the least wasteful way possible! Also, just remember – YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! Most of us have difficulties dealing with leftovers and overeating for days!
