Sunday Brunch- Optical Illusion



Using small dishes serves as an optical illusion tricking your brain into thinking you're eating more than you are.  The results are satisfaction and consumption of fewer calories. 

P
ictured here: brunch for two with just 2 sliced figs, half an avocado drizzled with a touch of soy sauce and lemon juice, 2 tablespoons spicy hummus, 1/4 cup lowfat honey pear New Zealand style artisan yogurt, 2 small pieces European style whole grain bread, 3 oz gruyere & rosemary asiago and an arugula salad dressed with fresh lemon juice, olive oil and shaved parmesan cheese.
Strive for quality not quantity.
