When I make a plate of food, I make sure to put the most delicious things on the bottom, covered by the less delicious things. Ex. salad with cubes of meat and cheese at the bottom. This motivates me to eat all of the veggies or whatever's on top before eating the yummy stuff. If the yummy stuff is on top, I eat it first and then I don't always want to eat the veggies and other healthy stuff.

Some cultures spend more effort in food presentation than Americans. Try having several colors of food on your plate. Sweet potato, tomatoes, spinach, meat. It's like having technicolor food. You tend to appreciate what you're eating more
Work on your presentation. Food taste better when it looks good on the plate. Play around with diffferent plating options. Creative presentations can get you engaged with your meal and you won't think of it as less or healthy it will just be good food!!!!140
Presenting food with more interest to make it more appealing and desirable to eat; I reuse the containers from salads purchased at Subway - the portion size is perfect for me, and it fools me into thinking I'm getting a'fab' salad from somewhere better than my own kitchen.
