Eating: The Clock Method

Here’s a cool trick I just learned that is used to know where food on your plate is:

Use the Clock Method!


“Your veggies are at 12 o’clock. Your meat is at 3 o’clock. And your pasta/salad is at 6 o’clock.”


And so on and so forth. It’s a pretty neat trick, and people at restaurants use this trick for people with visual impairment so they don’t have to scramble around on their plate trying to figure what food is which, and what it is exactly. Since a clock is almost universally distinguishable, it’s easy for everyone to know what it means and use it.
