Use a smaller plate, you will have leftovers to eat later, will reduce calories and will not provide as much demand on the production of food


“I have learned the secret of being content no matter what happens. I am content whether I am well fed or hungry. I am content whether I have more than enough or not enough”. Phil 4:12

The global increase in obesity rates over the past 30 years has been paralleled by an increase in the portion size of many foods. A friend of mine who runs a small business making kitchen cupboards says that the cupboards he takes out of older houses can often not be reused, because our modern plates don’t fit!

Items available at fast food restaurants are estimated to be 2 to 5 times larger than 2 decades ago!

Here are a few suggestions on how to shrink that portion size
– Use smaller plates! Use the smallest plates you have in your cupboard. Psychologically the helping will feel bigger!

-Fill up your plate with healthy stuff, like vegetables or salad.

– Fill the plates and then put the leftovers in the fridge. If you leave them on the table everyone will come for seconds, hungry or not!

Enough is enough. Eating too much is bad for your body and bad for the planet…..
