I don’t know about you , but when we’re out to eat, and I’m full and I put my fork down….. I will sit there and pick at my food until the waiter comes and takes it away. Same with the bread basket or the chips and salsa. So my new motto is to ruin it. Once I’m done ( and if there isn’t enough to take home with me as another meal) I will ruin my dish.
And I know I’m going to hear, there are little children starving in third- world countries … but lets face it… my 2oz of left over spaghetti isn’t going to them, its going in the trash… ok.
So pour salt and pepper all over it, pout your water on it .. it works, and people will look at you funny but … who cares people look at me funny when I’m being just “me” lol 😛
Now if your out with other people and they want the extra bread, just put it on the other side of the table so then its not staring you in the face…. lol. Be considerate, but think about your health too. P.S. also when you start making these little changes you’ll get the “one breadstick isn’t going to kill you” line from your friends .. believe me I’VE EVEN SAID IT … but if my friend was allergic to it, I wouldn’t be trying to push it on them, look at it that way and maybe if your friend needs an explanation, explain it that way too… “I’m on a special diet and I intend to stick to it” .. most likely they will understand. 🙂
