Today’s post is one of my go to “food rules” and it is to simply UPGRADE your current diet and DOWNGRADE your plate. If you are eating an egg sandwich for breakfast add some spinach take away the cheese and have a fresh squeezed carrot juice with it and voila you have upgraded your meal.
What do I mean my downgrade your plate? Well, simply order an appetizer when you eat out or buy some really pretty smaller dishes for your home cooked meals. You are more likely to eat what is in front of you so this is a great tool for portion control and you will really have to check in with yourself and your hunger level before you get up for seconds or ask the waiter for more food.
Check out some other UPGRADE ideas:
B- instant apple cinnamon oatmeal to plain whole oats with cinnamon and sliced apple
L- chicken cobb salad to a grilled chicken with avocado tomato and lettuce on a spinach wrap
D- Chipolte burrito with brown rice to a make your own rice rice bowl with greens, peppers, beans, avocado and protein of your choice
