Beautiful Food Presentation = Less Consumption

I read what someone had written in another thread, adn realized that it's totally true! They wrote:

"By pouring my energy into the CREATION of the meal, I don't worry so much about the CONSUMPTION".

I thought about that, and paid more attention to what I do this week, and it is totally true! The more beautiful the presentation is, the less I eat. So I bought some new pretty dishes (in a smaller size, which also helps), fun dipping bowls, and chopsticks to jazz up meals, along with sprigs of mint, lime, or whatever else is in the meal!

Just thought this might help others. : )

Most definitely true for me. If I sit down and eat a beautifully prepeared meal instead of eating quickly leaning over the kitchen sink, I savor every bite and remember that I ate.

What a great idea. My husband and I are eating out less and this could also be a date night with flowers, a candle and a festive table cloth. Thanks.
