While I was re-organizing my kitchen, (clearing out the clutter), I came across our gorgeous China that was sadly, collecting dust. I decided to purge the rest and only use China.
Not only do I feel special at every meal, but I have lost weight! The sizes of antique China dishes are considerably smaller than almost all modern dishware. Smaller portion sizes come naturally on these delicate little plates. And, they're so fun!
I am a firm believer that meals should be enjoyed. China can transform any meal into an elegant event. Even if you're dining alone, I challenge you to break out the China, and cloth napkins if you have them, and sit at your table to eat.
When we treat a meal as an experience, we naturally slow down, (which is great for digestion and full signals), and we can easily eat smaller portions.
I haven't thrown out the food scale yet, but I also can't tell you exactly where it is.
I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences relating to China. Do you use it? So you think it helps with portion control?
