It’s no secret it’s a struggle not pack on the pounds around the holidays, so when I came across the Healthy Steps line of portion control kitchen tools from Jokari, I was thrilled. Each tool serves a specific purpose, making it so easy to stay within reasonable portion sizes during meals. For example, the Portion Control Starch Server is a spoon the size of the proper amount of cooked starch such as potatoes or rice, while the Portion Control Vegetable Server is a slotted spoon measuring one-half serving of cooked vegetables. Not only has using them helped me maintain my normal weight over the past few weeks (so far) but these handy tools also make great holiday gifts. Check out the website here.
