Hello everyone and thank you for visiting.. Bowls are becoming the new plates.. and there are many reasons for this change. My analysis of this current trend is that we have now found a way to eat delicious foods on the go. Main courses, soups, salads, and deserts can all be served and eaten in a bowl! It is convenient and an easy way to take to work and eat on the go. I recently have used a “hot insulated cup” to transport my food. The bottom line is that it is convenient. Another great benefit is portion control. When eating on a plate, its difficult to “eyeball” portion controls.
Portion control is what we all struggle with. It’s very difficult not to go for that second scoop of your favorite food.. don’t lie! It’s true..
Practicing better dieting habits, portion control, leads to better nutrition. We have a bad habit of drinking sodas, sweet teas, energy drinks and alcohol with our meals. In reality, we should consume liquids 25-30 of water before or after a meal.
Order soup! Now, this can be tricky, but creamy soups are not the number 1 choice.. your choice should be bone broth, miso, beef, chicken, vegetable or fish stocks based. Rich in vitamins and minerals, they are also a delicious start to a great meal.
Salad in a bowl, chili in a bowl, fruit in a cup or bowl, it is all a great way to measure or portions.
Eat three times as much vegetables as protein. I personally need to eat 5 small meals per day, eating lots of vegetables and a protein. If I go for longer than 4 hours without food, I get a sick feeling in my stomach.
Thank you for visiting, remember “make a memory every day and don’t apologize for who you are!”
