Day 2,065: I'm not normally one to photograph my food....
Sunday, September 13, 2015
I'm not one to normally photograph my food... but... I have been experimenting with different sized crockery recently as I do believe that reducing the size of your plates does fool your brain into thinking you are eating more.
Today I prepared wholewheat pasta with a home made bolognese sauce and a Caesar salad. As I served it up, something struck me. The pasta was now in a side salad sized bowl and the Caesar salad was in a main meal sized bowl the size of my pasta portions of old!
Just in case anyone is interested, the whole meal contained: Calories 427, Carbs 45, Fat 10, Protein 32, Fibre 8. And it was delicious!
I would recommend trying out different sized crockery - you don't have to buy a whole new dinner service - I bought single plates and bowls from Amazon that have been absolutely perfect to help me get used to healthy portion sizes.
Have an amazing, healthy, happy day!
