I often get asked about portion control.....

We love to rush our meals and inhale snacks on the go, but this can prevent us from engaging our senses and registering when we have had enough to eat.
 
It takes approximately 20 minutes to have the feeling of fullness, so if you eat quick, you will typically over eat.
 
By slowing down, you may just cut portions in half naturally!
 
When we stop eating when we are actually full, this is called intuitive eating and should be our guide for portion control.
 
If you are eating due to stress, boredom, emotions, holidays or celebrations, you may need to portion your food first because you are eating while distracted and not paying attention to feelings of fullness.

Vegetables....

As much as cavemen, vegans and everyone in between argue about the best diet for long term health, the one common denominator is a diet rich in vegetables. The bulk of your daily carbohydrate intake should come from non-starchy vegetables, 1-2 servings of fruits and limited grains to keep up nutrition and keep down your inflammation and waist line.
