I skipped the whole recipe concept and just acquired a taste for what was healthy, along with taking care to use reasonable portions. My only spices to liven up plain, homecooked foods have been e.v. Olive Oil, salt and pepper. Though, I'll use some salad dressing to liven up cabbage and lettuce.
I use smaller forks and spoons (which usefully slow down my eating so I'm more aware of when I've eaten enough), and serve my meals in smaller serving bowls (mine are 10 oz. Corelle bowls), which are close enough to my serving size that I never need to measure portions other than filling up the bowls so they're level with the top.
My BMI's gone from high normal to low normal, a net change of some 35 lbs, which led to a major improvement in my blood lipids chemistry which was my main objective.
