Served Up!

Serving sizes. Just what constitutes a proper serving size? I don't think many of us know! We live in a society where food servings are huge and out of control. We don't even realize just how much we are consuming!

If you want to know about how much a serving size REALLY is (and want to get control of it) read this article! It's fairly easy to estimate even when you're dining out. You don't have to carry measuring cups with you! ;)

I know that scaling down isn't always fun or easy. However, we can train ourselves to be satisfied with less. In fact, we sometimes eat so much so fast that we don't have time to realize that our body IS already satisfied until we are so full that we regret it. We really do need to scale down and slow down!

Grace and peace to you, my friends! Be mindful of your serving sizes and serve up good food and nutrition to yourself! Take your time, eat slowly, and enjoy your food! Learn to be satisfied even with smaller portions and savor whatever it is that you're eating. Be infused! God bless you!
