Downsize Your Dishes
Small plates are essential in the clean eaters’ kitchen because they help keep portion size under control and calorie overload
to a minimum. This is particularly important during the holidays when temptation is everywhere.
A good portion control trick for cocktail parties, when we all can go a little crazy over a pan of hot dip, is to stick to something in a self-contained package. These Mini Crab Cups do the trick. Two little cups have just over 100 calories, and the creamy lump crabmeat filling will feel like anything but deprivation.
