Please do not waste your food.
I have seen instances when food was wasted/thrown into the Garbage because:
The food is not warm.
The food doesn't suit their taste buds.

What lead to this situation?
Is it negligence?
Was the food left in the refrigerator for days together and left to decay?
The amount of food one eats in the developed countries for breakfast, is the food a person eats in Africa for the whole day. [Forgot the magazine, which gave this fact, and hence unable to give reference]
I am sure everyone of us has received the e-mail of a child crawling to a food camp in sudan and a vulture waiting near by to eat the child once it died of starvation. Please think of this when you waste your food. We are blessed to eat a square meal. For those who were lucky enough to escape the gory picture, here it is: (click on image for a enlarged view)
And then, there are these instances were people celebrate their Birthdays where the person is literally bathed in all sort of food items, like in this video below:
Despite our (Sree's and mine) comments mentioning the importance of food, the person never even bothered to reply. The amount of food wasted could have lasted at least two days.
I reiterate: Please do not waste your food.
