  • Ways to eat better In the new year

    To help with portion control, use the smallest plate that will hold your food.

    At mealtime, serve from the stove instead of putting a serving bowl on the table.

    Make double vegetables and serve them first, to take the focus off meat.

    Switch to whole wheat pasta.

    Eat vegetarian one night a week.

    Cut back on butter or margarine – newer whole-grain breads are tasty on their own.
