Trick Yourself With Size & Colors!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Did you know that the colors red, orange & yellow can actually make you desire to eat something? On the other hand, the color blue can suppress your appetite. Size also has a lot to do with perspective. If you fix & eat your meal off of a small plate, you feel like you are eating more than if you put it on a large plate. Soooo,,, eating your meals off of small, blue plates can trick your mind into thinking you're eating more than you are!

    The blue plate is a new idea for me. Thanks. I'll give it a try.

    I love this idea. Could I ask restaurants to serve food on smaller blue plates???
