Secrets of Success

Presentation Matters



When I first tried changing my eating habits, some of the food I was making seemed so unappealing and bland that it felt like a punishment. I started dressing up my meal presentation, as if my simple lunches were something I might get in a nice deli or cafe. It was the same food, but now I was looking at it as something to look forward to rather than a less appealing alternative to what I really wanted. As a bonus, my smaller portion sizes look right.

    Presentation does matter. Last night I put cottage cheese and blueberries in a crystal stemmed dish and topped it with some sliced almonds. My husband asked me to make him one! - by DULCIMERQUEEN
