Be wise about portion size
We’ve all been to restaurants that heap food on our plates. But that doesn’t mean you have to do the same at home.
Far too often, these massive servings mean we overeat, waste or do both.That’s why, in our homes, we’d be wise to avoid these heavy-handed helpings. Being smart about how much we serve our guests and families is essential, as plate remains are seldom saved.
Plus, it’s easy to take seconds if you’re still hungry after the first serving. Using smaller plates is an easy way to avoid serving too much. And when you’re at a restaurant, ask how large the portions are and order accordingly! For more tips visit my website American Wasteland.
