chicken salad, cole slaw, and macaroni salad all mixed together to make one serving
topped with pecans
1 slice of muenster cheese
1 glass of ice water
Place all the food on your plate. Put everything else back in the refrigerator, so you aren't tempted to have a second serving of anything.
Well, you can have more water!
Drink at least a 1/4 to 1/2 of the water before starting to eat. I usually drink 1/2 of the water first.
Eat a little bit of everything - slowly. Enjoy your meal.
At this point make sure all of the water is gone or at least most of it. Save one or two blackberries to finish your meal with a sweet berry.
Eat the berry and finish all the water.
Do the dishes and you are done!
Why do I eat like this?
- I need to relax during lunch time. Two years ago I would stand at the counter and eat my lunch and rush back to work. Never took a break.
- I don't want to overeat, so that is why I set the food on the plate (and make it look pretty). Then I put away the other food before I start to eat.
- I think food should look pretty - like a quilt!
