You are pretty busy and half the time you wish for the solutions how to simplify your life, but you just don’t have the time to look for them. And that’s where we come to the rescue.
What is it about?
I did mention before that I work full time outside of the home, right? Well, let me tell you something else – when I walk into the house, I often have just about 15 minutes to get the dinner table ready while keeping an eye on two young and restless. I don’t have the time to measure portions, because my dinner is only one out of 10 things I do between 7 and 7:30 pm.
I need to watch my portion control
Jumbo measuring spoon. This one is by Healthy Steps, but if you don’t know what that is, just look for the serving spoon. The website refers to these two as a starch server and a vegetable server.
Besides the fact that these servers are pretty, green, and make me feel happy, they also have built-in measurement of how much you can eat. One starch server measures a half of a cup or 1 serving of potatoes or rice (It also has a measurement inside for half of the portion). One vegetable server is 1/2 of serving, so scoop twice. That means my dinner tonight, just might, be one scoop or brown rice and two scoops of steamed broccoli. Severs are dishwasher saves and hit resistant (up to 400F).
And just think about it – one spoon gives you the perfect amount of starch, two spoons provide the right amount of vegetables and all that’s left is to add a protein – dinner is served!
