Plate like a French woman

Plate like a French woman!

“French women eat smaller portions of more things, and American women eat larger portions of fewer things. So plate your meal like a French woman! For breakfast, eat a slice of toast, a sliver of butter, a bit of jam, and a fruit—like half a banana—plus coffee or tea. Variety, color, and presentation go a long way toward fooling the stomach into thinking you’re eating more than you actually are.”
