The mind is a lousy master but a wonderful servant.
From "Want Smaller Portions? Try Smaller Plates," Spirituality and Health Magazine (September/October 2005):
Tracy Adler, a restaurateur in North Carolina and former out-of-control snacker, is on a crusade against childhood obesity. To this end, she has created bowls with a four-ounce capacity. Written around the rim is, "YUM YUM time is..." When you get to the bottom, you read, "over." Adler is so serious about her mission that she serves her restaurant's desserts in these dishes, and has partnered with local charities and hosted a fundraiser to send one overweight child to obesity camp. You can probably create your own dishes with nontoxic materials, but if that's too hard, check out yumyumdish.com
