Red is my favorite color. It’s bold and passionate. It’s the color of some of my favorite fruits and vegetables—radicchio, beets, strawberries, and apples.

And now there’s another reason to love red: A recent study  found that using red dinner plates decreased consumption compared to using blue or white plates. The authors of the study believe that the color red is  associated with “danger” or “stop”, which is a mental cue that influenced eating behavior. Pretty cool!

So now that the holiday season is upon us, it will be very easy to find red plates. Maybe we should give it a go? After all, we KNOW how dangerous this time of year can be!
