Maybe its a mothering instinct, maybe i just like to see everyone fed and happy. The thing is though sometimes when I over cook, I also over eat.
If you are of a generation that had to 'finish what is on your plate' then like me you are likely to over eat even though you know you are far too full to fit anything else in (well maybe except pudding because we have an extra stomach for that ... right??)

Its not always easy sticking to our healthy eating goals, but just using simple tricks one step at a time can really make a difference!
