TINKLE DIGEST - February 2015
meant, but took the lesson at face value—I must finish everything on
my plate if I want to be a good girl.
As the years went by, I became less of a waster and would only serve
myself as much as I could eat. But I had still not truly understood what
my grandma had said when she asked me to respect my food. That
was, until I tried growing it. Before you start imagining me plowing a
field, let me tell you that growing food was restricted to a balcony
garden and plastic pots for me! I started off with sprouts because they
were the easiest, and then went on to herbs and finally to tomatoes. It
took me several days of watering, tending and caring to receive the
fruit of my labour, literally. And all that for just one tomato!
When you think about how much time, effort and love it has
taken for your food to reach your plate—from the farmer to
the transporter to the vegetable vendor to your parents who
bought it, cooked it and served it to you—you finally see food in
an entirely different way. It is not just something on your plate that
you need to finish. It is something you respect because it makes you a
stronger and healthier person!
On that note, let me leave you to enjoy the Foodie issue. Check out
some of the best stories and features in this issue on the right hand
side. Also read some of the great feedback we’ve received from all
over the country in ‘Letters to the Editor’ on page 96.
