A Full Week of Full Plates: Tuesday

It is time for day two of my full week of high-volume eating documentation. I would much rather have an entire cake than a small sliver. If you agree, I hope this inspires you to keep your plates full by making food choices that maximize portion size and nutrients for the amount of calories they contain. Believe me; your satisfied belly will thank you.

A Full Week of Full Plates: Monday

I would like to take the opportunity to provide a visual account of my high-volume style of eating. Each day over the next week, I will be posting examples of every meal I prepare to give you an idea of how making choices to get the largest portion size for your macronutrients can result in satisfyingly full plates (and lots of them). It does take some time and effort for food preparation, but it is well worth it. I assure you, when those plates are empty, your stomach will not be. If nothing else, please enjoy the food porn!

They beg to be drowned in condiments that make such a mess of our fingers that has no fathomable remedy other than savagely licking them clean. Like most potato products, they urge us to have another…and another…and another…and we just cannot refuse.

Must we let these devious little starch-bombs have the upper hand, or is there a way to have large portions of fries without sending our blood sugars into a spiraling tizzy?

Jicama to the rescue…

Small Portions Leaving You Crabby?

Mayo-based salads have been a long time favorite of mine. Combining meat, eggs, or any other protein source with vegetables and plenty of creamy dressing is certainly more satisfying than a bowl of plain lettuce. The issue, however, is that the rich dressing we may be mixing generously into our salads can accumulate excess calories. There are two options: reduce the portion size to three bites, or try this…
