I’m trying to decide if these plates have a future as a diet aid.* Visualizing the eventual chyme-ish fate of a bolus of taco salad might just induce me to eat less. . . on the other hand, the dreamy blue watercolor palette makes me think of snowflakes, not chyme and gall. And I think I’ve done too many dissections for a medical illustration to have much of an effect.

*you can preorder them, but at $750, that’s one pricey diet dish set. . .
