An Easter goody

March 30, 2010

Just in time for Easter, there’s more good news about eating chocolate.  All I can say is…bring it on Easter Bunny!

Jesus Christ, Super Sized

March 23, 2010

If there was any doubt serving portions have gotten larger, here’s some food for thought.   A Cornell University researcher analyzed dozens of famous painting of the Last Supper (yes, that one) and found food portions have grown larger in more recent ones.  Just how much larger? 

Over time, the size of the main dish has grown 69 percent, the size of the plate 66 percent, and bread portions23 percent in the images.  The study is published in April’s International Journal of Obesity.

While I don’t think the study holds much weight and is timed to conveniently coincide with Holy Thursday, it’s definitely something to think about when you sit down to Easter dinner next weekend.
