More Green For Less Green

Living more eco-friendly for less money


Portion Size- The Stealth Saver

  1. Portion size matters. Keep your meat portions to the "right" size (3 oz/size of a deck of cards) and fill the rest of your plate with cheaper things like big salads, other veggies, fruit, and starchy things like pasta, rice, potatoes, beans, bread.
  2. Since we cut back on meat, sides are fair game for eating all of. Hey, they're cheap, fill up!
  3. Serve your food on small plates. You'll take less when there isn't all of that empty space to fill.
  4. Protect your leftovers. My husband used to eat into the entrees we'd meant for leftovers, so we now either portion that out right away (before serving) or decide together how much of the main course needs to be left untouched.
