yes i do know personally of some who do not eat left overs at all. but for me, i'm fine with it. like some have said, it's a waste to throw it away and i don't mind it being left overs. but i try not to have rice as left overs as it's a humid country and the rice can get spoilt quite fast. although rice cooked at lunch doesn't spoil by dinner usually, i still feel a little off. it's either i keep the rice if the refrigerator or throw away what's left. i try not to keep it in the fridge as i want to give my children freshly cooked rice at least. as for the other dishes, the most i'll keep them is a day. as in if it's cooked during lunch, then it has to be finished by dinner(which it usually is) and not a day more.

It actually tastes better re cooked but I agree Rice is a No No, even in a non humid Country, some of the toxins that get in there can make you very sick. I freeze rice.

i have eaten re cooked rice before, as fried rice though and long before i was married. it was different to freshly cooked rice. it had its own distinctive taste i felt. it was good. but i've never frozen rice before. i've only just put it in the fridge below.

My parents and my grandma don't believe in wasting foods. And to tell you the truth, I love food too much to throw it in the trash, but we only eat food leftovers that actually taste good the next day. Because some foods don't taste so tasty after it's been sitting in the refrigerator for hours or overnight. It loses it's original yumminest. We don't throw these foods away, we will just cook only enough food for that particular meal so it won't be any leftovers. But on the flip-side, if it's certain foods that still holds it's ground after sitting in the refrigerator overnight, we'll eat that the following day, but I personally don't like to eat foods that has been sitting around for more than one day. In most cases I would consider that gross. Foods that I will normally eat the next day are pizza, lasagna, chicken (although it's best eaten after cooked) barbecue meat, spaghetti, dressing and turkey, broccoli and cheese, homemade chili, just to name a few. To me, food is at it's best right after it's cooked. It's nice, fresh and tasty.

If it's not spoiled yet, I do eat it. Specially if I'm the only one who took a bite from it anyway (which is almost the case). But if it would be at someone else's house I'd probably have my doubts eating leftovers too. I really don't like wasting food so I make sure that it seldom gets spoiled. And some food are best served cold anyway. Like pizza, spaghetti. I 'm just careful with dishes that have sauces cause I don't like to have food poisoning or something.

This is how I eat in my household. Everyone has their plate and we scoop up the quantity of dish we want to eat. So we avoid leftovers by eating this way. If there are still food from the dish left, it is still clean to eat it because it's not like 10 people has plurged their spoons in it. Think about it as ice cream being served in stores. The leftover from the dish, I do eat sometimes the next day or pack it for school if it's something I like.

In my family, we were taught by our parents that we shouldn't waste food, that includes left-over food. What I mean here is, left-over food that is still good to be eaten. Not that kind of rotten left-overs. To provide food, we need money. And money is something that we earn with efforts. So my parents want us, their children, to appreciate their efforts to provide food for the whole family. That's the whole point. They don't, and never, suggest us to eat rotten left-overs. As long as the left-overs can still be eaten, we shouldn't waste that away.

If I cook something the night before work I make enough so that we can take left overs in our lunch for work the next day. I don't like to waste food and I find it much cheaper than eating out somewhere for lunch every day.

hi marketing! i will respond now coz i have nothing to write. hehe anyway, yeah i eat leftover foods, especially if i really liked it in the first place. i don;t have problems with left overs. i either just reheat it or turn it into something else. like i transform it, add some more ingredients and make it into another dish. my husband on the other hand does not like reruns (that is what i call leftovers in the house). but when i re-do the dish, he will eat it. hehe creativity to make things work. take care girl and God bless you!

Yes, I will eat the leftovers. It is not a big problem. I can add some new ingredients and make it delicious. It is a shame to waste the food in my opinion. Because today there are still many people who are starving. We have a saying here: Don't complain about when you are full. I love China

I don't want to waste food, and my husband will always eat our leftover foods the next day. We had chicken for dinner last night and there was some leftover, so that's what we had for dinner tonight.

I do not like to waste food, if there someone is left over the food then I'll eat it no matter who's eat it before. It depends on how long the food will be spoiled, if the smell is rotten and the color has changed I will not eat.

I do. Things are almost always left over and I end up eating it. I hate throwing food away. It feels so wrong. I don't get disgusted by it or anything, I mean I ate the day before nothing changed the day after. If it's been in the fridge for too long then I may discard it but I really try to eat up before reaching that point.
