The LaRue County Extension Office offers 25 tips to eat better in the New Year:
• To help with portion control, use the smallest plate that will hold your food.
• At mealtime, serve from the stove instead of putting a serving bowl on the table.
• Make double vegetables and serve them first, to take the focus off meat.
• Switch to whole wheat pasta.
• Eat vegetarian one night a week.
• Cut back on butter or margarine – newer whole grain breads are tasty on their own.
