Do your best to incorporate a variety of color on your plate. For a healthy fix, scoop in greens, reds, and yellows. If meat is your fancy, add in your favorite protein to seal the deal. Your meal just became a bit more festive!

Avoid large plates

Using a large plate or bowl instantly increases your chances for a heavier meal. Opt for small to medium-sized plates for your foods. This helps you portion what you’re eating, and promotes a well balanced diet. You’ll be surprised what a good-sized meal can do for you.
