For my family tree-and they all branch differently , choices are more important than portion control.
I would have the grilled tilapia, steamed broccoli, cucumber salad, and mac and cheese.
I'm a sucker for mac and cheese, corn bread and red velvet cake. I would allow myself to have 1 small portion of what I love vs going without. I like to enjoy my food and not resent the fact that I did not choose at least 1 thing that I absolutely love because it isn't good for you.
