Breakfast: Rolled oats with banana, coconut, almonds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds
Lunch: Egg sandwich
Dinner: Sautéed potato, cauliflower and pickled herring
I am so glad that not so pretty photos are not banned, the poor egg sandwich would stand no chance of getting through in case there was a ban. It did taste good though, bread, egg and sauce, can't really go wrong.

Do you recall your parents threatening to punish you if you didn’t finish your meal, and reward you if you did? The famous carrot and stick approach, and carrot was probably one of the foods we did not finish. Those days went as we grew up, well not for everyone.
A restaurant owner in Saudi Arabia is fining diners who don’t eat everything they order. “Fahad al Anezi, of Dammam, said customers often order a large quantity of food as a status symbol at his establishment, the Marmar Restaurant. Al Anezi calculates the fines based on the amount of food left over, and said he has received support from other Saudis for his idea.
Wastage is bad but if someone is willing and able to afford it I wonder if a fine will discourage them. Wastage is good for Al Anezi though, he makes money twice from his food, or three times if he sells the left overs! So while he is doing this to reduce wastage, silently he may be hoping for more wastage. Talk about a screwed up incentive structure!
