Cut Foods Into Small Pieces To Fool Your Eyes


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I often cut up food that I am eating into smaller pieces so that it looks like I have more to eat, which satisfies my eyes. My children have been fooled by this for years when it comes to me serving them a favorite food, so why not do the same myself? If I have a high calorie item that I'm eating for example, pizza, I just cut it up smaller so it spreads all over my dish. This will save you calories and will also help you to savor each small piece.

    Great advice! It's said that we eat with our eyes first.
