I have never bought a 'set' of dishes. There were sizes that I knew I would never use. The cups were too small for a decent morning cup of coffee. And the dinner plates were too large. I have always bought only the dishes I knew I would use in the size that was suitable for my family. Corelle has ideal luncheon size dishes that can be bought from open stock.

And one of the benefits of smaller size dishes, is serving control. The plate looks fuller and you are tricked into thinking you ate a big meal. Great for the waistline.
I've tried this before but just looking at the small plates
I had got me depressed and I ended up eating twice as much. Have you started using the small plates in a moment of your life were you were very happy?

I very rarely am unhappy. I pretty much roll with the punches if I am having a problem. Then I bounce back. I have been using the smaller plates for so long. It started with the kids. And as they began to leave home, I just never stopped. Since I didn't have large dinner plates, only smaller luncheon ones. Now I only use paper ones. Including bowls. I don't want to spend my last days on eath cleaning. I have been considering plastic forks, knives and spoons. The only reason I am hestiating is because of the cost. I HATE using the cheap ones like you get for take out. I may have to go to BJ's or Costco's and get the restaurant size box of the good ones. And I mean the really good ones. I don't want them breaking in my mouth while I am eating.

Thumbs up Fat free, low carb, heart healthy.

I eat a lot of black turtle beans, the best tasting bean ever. And I make cream cheese out of yogurt by draining it over night and adding dry onion chips.

And Brussels sprouts have helped me lose 70lbs in one summer.

I gave up counting carbs and limiting the food I eat, I just fill up on fibrous plant foods.

Congradulations. Keep up the good work.
