I hate measuring everything out. It makes you feel like you're not eating enough especially when it's on a plate that is large. So, I went to the storage unit and grabed my plates and bowls that are smaller probably the recommended 9 inches instead of the 12-15 inches that plates tend to come in now. The dishes I have can't go in the microwave, due to little metal on the edges but that is fine. They are also not recommended for dishwashers but I don't have one of those. So, this way I don't have to measure out but oz's or grams I can just kind of have my meal on this plate if it doesn't fit then it I probably don't need as much of something or not.
I tried it today, I had my cousin over and we used the bowls but they are not deep bowls for the pasta and I had it filled and I thought it was enough, I was full by the time I finished. Now I know that if I had it on the larger Corel plates I would have put a lot more pasta on that plate and probably ate too much. I'm now a true believer in what you see on your "full" dish helps control your portions or not if you use a larger dish.
