I confess, until recently, I have been someone who threw away the heels of the bread. I know, I know, it is horribly wasteful. My hubby would even eat them, but just the thought was disturbing to me. I just didn’t understand why anyone would want to eat that!
Ok, so true confession. I know in my head that it is just bread, no different than any other bread. But I can’t get past the look of it. Do you think this reveals something about a deep seeded food shallowness? Is it possible I am too focused on appearance and am missing out on some great food because its looks don’t meet my standards? Doesn’t the Bible say it is what is on the inside that matters? Pray for me readers…I need some help being delivered from my food sins.
Then I had what Oprah would refer to as a lightbulb moment. What if I just didn’t have to look at the heel of the bread? What if I turned it over and the heel just disappeared? So that is precisely what I did. I made a grill cheese sandwich with the heels flipped over…and fed it to my kids. Baby steps people. Still, if my baby steps towards shallowness with food healing can help just one other mom, it will have all been worth it.
