things i should have taught my children, but didn't
eat dessert. i never really voiced it, but i think it is important. it signals your brain that one is through eating. this is the best idea i have ever read. it cancels out the eat dessert first idea, unless one does not want to eat anything else after the dessert. of course, that doesn't mean one should eat the whole jar of cookies...just one cookie or if, like me, one is on weight watchers, half a cookie. just a little sweet to tell the brain that this is the end of the meal...no more food...finished.
oh and btw, dessert has 2 's's' as in strawberry shortcake. no one wants to eat a desert...too dry.
