This Sparked Me!

emoticon Using a small plate for a dinner plate instead of the usual size. That way portions are smaller but your plate is full and you think you are eating the same amounts.

    This is one of my favorite tips! I use a small salad plate from my mom's good china, and it makes dinner the right portion, plus it is really pretty to look at as well.
