This is a beautiful bowl of spaghetti with delicious vegetables that I was lucky enough to eat for lunch in Salo Italy. Yes it's appeared before on my IG.
What struck me even more than its culinary perfection was the serving size. You may think it looks large in the photo. In fact, it was on the small side, by our standards anyway. However, it was at this point I realised just how oversized our portions are. This was actually the perfect amount!
I bought my lunch today in between meetings at a food court in Collins Street, Docklands and while tapping away on my laptop I was secretly checking out people's food choices and portion sizes. I was shocked to see the volume of crap people were putting away. I was amazed at just how large our portion sizes have become, and moreover just how expected they are. It made me remember my bowl of pasta in Italy and how far we have strayed from what we really need to what we are demanding as consumers.
I thought it was so sad to see such massive amounts of food, so cheaply produced being slammed away so quickly with not even a look away from the mobile phone, the laptop, or the magazine.
If nothing else Europe has taught me to enjoy great food at a much slower pace and certainly made me reconsider my serving size!! #pasta#italy#salo#spagetti#portionsize#lunch#portioncontrol#supplyanddemand#greedy#europe#travel#realization
