It is fairly common knowledge that Americans waste a lot of food and that portion sizes are larger than they used to be, and we have an obesity problem. I’ve been aware of this for a long time but never gave it much thought. This morning I became acutely aware of this whilst having breakfast at Denny’s. I ordered an omelette sandwich, has browns, juice and coffee. I ate half of it and could not finish as I was feeling stuffed; there was enough on my plate to feed two people ! Also, there was a family of five at the table next to mine; when they were finished there was food on every one of their plates. Lesson learned from this: I intend to be more mindful of what and how much I eat thus alleviating my own obesity problem…..
