Size Matters

You may have read about the trick to use smaller plates to help with portion control.   Here's last night's supper as illustration.  Hubby's on a 10.5" plate.

Compared to mine on an 8" plate.

The coleslaw and pineapple portions are the same.  On the other hand, I made my sandwich with 1 slice of bread instead of 2.  It also used an ounce less meat.  I also skipped the butter on my sandwich and put some of the slaw on my sandwich after the photo.

Difference between the 2 meals?  230 calories.
