Last time I went out to dinner with my siblings, I ended up eating spaghetti with meat balls and my husband some pizza, all what we are not supposed to eat if we want to lose some body fat. On the other hand, my siblings stuck with their diet and they had just a salad. Of course, nobody forced me to eat my spaghetti and I enjoyed it. But.. next time I saw them, I decided to invite them over and prepare a nice salad for everybody, after all they set the example. There are lots of vegetables in this salad and is garnished with a beautiful Salmon “rose”. Presentation is clue, we eat with our eyes. We had a lovely time and we all felt really good, satisfied without overeating.
