Heathly Steps: Portion Control Kitchen Tools Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!

My husband and I have been trying to eat healthier, since he got the news that he has high cholesterol. A big part of eating healthy is portion control. If you have visited a restaurant lately you will have noticed how big portion sizes have become in America. I will usually eat half of my meal and bring home the other half to eat the following day. Portion sizes can be measured easily with this set of kitchen tools I am excited to tell you about!

Healthy Steps is a line of kitchen products designed to help you prepare properly portioned foods at home and gives you the tools necessary to enjoy the foods you currently eat in a more healthy manner. I received the 3 piece serving set to review and we love it! It is made very durable and is stylish as well! These serving pieces give you a guide of what portion size to serve for different food groups such as proteins, starches and vegetables. Now you won't have to guess how much a serving size should be or get out measuring cups to get the right amount! Simply use theses tools to serve!


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Pre-portioned serving pieces for precise serving sizes

The Healthy Steps Portion Control Serving Set provides portion control for serving cooked meals right at the dinner table or straight from the stove. Their stylish appearance is perfect for serving guests and family alike. Since portion sizes are tucked away on the heads of the tools, no one will know you are measuring!

Serving Set Contains:


  • 1 slotted spoon for vegetables
  • 1 solid spoon for starches such as potatoes or rice
  • 1 spatula for protein

  • How to use:


  • Choose the appropriate tool for the food group to serve.
  • For vegetables and starches, fill the spoon but do not heap.
  • For proteins, use the spatula head as a guide for the proper portion size. Serve proteins in portions equal to the size of a deck of cards. Our spatula head mimics this recommendation.
  • Heat resistant to 400o F / 204o C. Dishwasher safe.

  • Benefits of Serving Set


  • Portion distortion is a real problem as serving sizes in restaurants continue to grow. Using this set helps teach proper portion sizes right at home.
  • Portion control is an effective way to manage and maintain a healthy weight.
  • Serving sizes are based on USDA dietary guidelines.
