These new cooks err on quantity like restaurants do,.I had a nice tomato cucumber salad then they brought this plate covered with penne pasta in tomato sauce and tomatoes and Zucchini.Then two slices of garlic toast. there must have been at least three cups of pasta. I ate as much as I was comfortable with and did not touch the garlic toast. "For dessert we had cheese cake. Nice lunch just way too much pasta. Don't they know the sight of a heaping plate of food sort of stops one's appetite? It did mine as that much pasta eaten would shoot up my blood glucose too high. It was delicious but too much food so I ate what was a normal portion and left the rest. One original graphic and post by P Hatley both copyrighted 2016

I believe that every person should eat what she/he feels. The right fit.

Mmmm. Cheese cake. We had that the other night. I have been hungry for stuffed green peppers lately. I think they might be good with some zucchini mixed in the rice maybe. Garlic toast is so yummy!

@Hatley I'm surprised they don't get it. It isn't like it's something out of the ordinary in retirement centres.

Glad you make sure that you eat the right amount so that blood-glucose problems do not arise.
