Digital Kitchen Scale

Take the guesswork out of portion control with a digital kitchen scale.  Great for measuring ingredients for recipes or ensuring you have the right potions on your plate. Using a journaling app?  Make it more accurate by measuring your portions.

 

Portion Management Dish and Stemware

Not fond of measuring with a kitchen scale try portion guided plates and glasses.  Plates will be 8”-9” in diameter and have pre-measured sections to guide the portioning of vegetables, starch or grains and protein elements of the meal.  Stemware will often be marked with decorative notations to indicate particular volumes.  Check out the Portion Control Plate at www.diabeaters.com or www.slimware.com for examples

Gravy separator

This measuring cup strains pan drippings from solids and then allows fat and non-fat drippings to separate. The spout draws non-fat drippings first when pouring.  Stop pouring just when the fat layer is about to pour from the spout.  Make great tasting gravy with fewer calories.
