The WooFood team joined the festivities to share the message that many local restaurants are helping the community maintain good nutrition when eating out. WooFood certified restaurants make the healthful choice the easy choice by offering menu items that taste good while being rich with vegetables and light on less healthful fats and meats. The WooFood booth also featured information about ways to make portion control easier at home by eating from a small plate or bowl instead of a large one. It is amazing how the same portion looks larger on a smaller plate. This little trick helps you feel more satisfied with a healthful portion size. When dining at WooFood certified restaurants, try “Dinner Now and Tomorrow’s Chow” to avoid overeating. Half of your order will be packed up for you to take home before your meal is served. This helps you avoid that temptation of just one more bite!
It was a great day to celebrate healthful lifestyles.
