Food is our basic need and essential for our survival. In spite of it being a crucial need for our sustenance, there are many people who do not have access to safe and nutritious food on a daily basis. As per a study published in 2011 by FAO, each year approximately one-third of all food produced for human consumption in the world is lost or wasted. This not only affects a country economically but also puts an unnecessary strain on the environment.

As such, it has become essential to keep consumption habits in check. There are several ways to avoid food wastes such as buying only those food which we need, planning meals ahead of a visit to the grocery/supermarket, using leftovers in innovative recipes, storing food in sealed containers, etc. Along with reducing our food waste, we also need to be mindful of the fact that everytime we are contributing to this global crisis, someone somewhere is struggling to meet his/her daily nutritional requirements.

Take that much food item on your 'thali', what you can consume. Better to cook food according to the need, so as to save wastage of Annapurna.
