Rethinking food preparation
Tuesday, April 16, 2019
Hmm, I'm not turning this into a series but there is a series of steps I'm taking.
My latest focus has been on portions. My food choices and preferences are healthy. I've become more aware of portions.
I measure my ingredients and happily have one serving of this, one of that and I either skip or lightly touch any dressings in my salads. Perhaps one and a half servings. After all it's healthy! In the end I have a large bowl full of good food that perhaps would be just as good if I split it in half.
I'm thinking single serving when I'm putting "multiple single servings" together which makes more than I should have! My new bowl is now half the size of the old. I'm not going to cram it full and I am not going back for seconds, just because the food is healthy.
I recently cringed and bought a few frozen entrees of the diet kind to help me recalculate sizes. Experiment of one, shall I say? Years ago they were my go-to lunches at work until I decided my own cooked food was free from chemicals and better tasting. I am not looking forward to eating them but dissecting them!
The experiment continues.....
