Think Small, Save Big

The size of our plate plays a large role in how much we eat. Studies have shown that the bigger the container, the more we are likely to consume. The bottom of the bowl is a useful mental cue for us to stop eating and check if we’re full. It turns out that smaller portions can be just as satisfying.

This week, enjoy your meals on a salad plate or in a small bowl. If eating food out of a package, put it on a plate first. This simple step can make all the difference in calories consumed.
