Use a Different Utensil

In an effort to lose weight, I have cut out snacks and I am having difficulty eating three servings of dairy and fruit each day. This morning I pulled out a clementine to eat for breakfast, but I was tired of cereal and milk. I decided to eat a cheese sandwich.

When I opened my Butter Bell, (see http://wp.me/pKNzn-yB) I noticed the butter was almost gone. Instead of spreading the butter with a knife, I used a small spatula to scrape the remaining butter out. I also used a different cheese slicer because I did not want a thick slab of cheese.

There was plenty of butter for my small cheese sandwich!
