Clean your plate

Opinions differ about whether it’s best to eat everything on our plates or to stop when we’ve had enough. Some say that eating all the food put in front of us can make us obsessive or encourage overeating.

However, I grew up on a farm with 4 brothers and subscribe firmly to eating everything I am served. I think it’s a principle that we can apply to most areas of our lives – i.e to learn to manage ourselves, set achievable goals and to finish what we set out to do.

Serving up a healthy portion at each meal and finishing what’s there is a way of learning to take responsibility for ourselves and our decisions – and to complete what we start.

If you are trying to cut down on your calorie intake, just eat from a smaller plate. There’s lots of psychology in eating, as in everything else, and when you see you’ve finished what’s on your plate, you know you've had enough. It's about making the right choices in the first place.

Learn what and how much is right for us, be satisfied with what we choose and tidy up after ourselves. Clean our plate.

Job well done every time.
