Easy Portion Control At The Bar

Try A Portion-Marked Glass When Drinking At Home. This will help you keep track of how many ounces you’ve knocked back. I like the discreet ones by Wine-Trax.

Game Changer Kitchen Gadget (PS- It’s one of Oprah’s favorite things, too!)

Those of you who know me know that I am obsessed with Oprah. If she told me to jump off a bridge, I would do it. Luckily, this didn’t require such extreme measures, but rather just a little counter space.

This is the BEST new gadget I have seen in years. The Tfal Actifry makes everything tastes like you fried it, but you didn’t! It is dishwasher safe and makes no mess whatsoever. You simply put the food you want to cook in the well, use a spoonful (they provide the special spoon) of oil or marinade (the pic above shows roasted cauliflower and carrots with a tablespoon of Soy VeyVery Teriyaki  marinade- 30 calories), follow the provided chart to set a cook time, and press start. It cooks super fast and can hold a lot of food. It can be used with everything- veggies, potatoes, pasta, meat/chicken-even frozen foods! (my son has been eating soggy chicken nuggets for 11 years, who knew?). And me- I haven’t roasted veggies in the oven since I bought it.

PS- I repeat, there is no clean up other than putting the nonstick cooking pan in the dishwasher. It’s a faux frying miracle!

The coolest, frozen way to snack healthy I’ve seen yet! These all natural, freeze & eat, bite-sized ices are all natural, super low cal and gluten free. It’s a bite-sized popsicle, without the mess and melt!

PS- You can use them in smoothies and “healthy” cocktails, too!


A Middle Eastern bread and my #1 bread substitute! A single piece is HUGE, only 100 calories, and so soft. Use it for wraps, apps, pizzas, and snacks. I buy 5 bags at a time and freeze!


The BEST tasting, sugar-free chocolate bar, ever! Unlike other sugar-free chocolate, ChocoRite contains no Maltitol (which, if we’re being blunt, causes gas and bloating), but uses GI-friendly stevia, instead.


The almost-perfect protein bar: No junk ingredients, no sugar added, low carb, and gluten free! They’re super chewy and, did I mention, over 2 ounces? That’s a pretty hefty weight in the protein food department.


These freezer-aisle souffles are DELISH! Each has 140-200 calories, less than 1.5 grams of fat, 3-5 grams of fiber, and are a satisfying size. Volumize them with steamed veggies and mash it all together. It isn’t pretty, but it’s good!


A stick contains a half serving of fruit and a half serving of veggies, which also means one-third less sugar than other fruit strips. Each one has 15-20 calories versus 45-60 in other fruit leather strips.


The first non-aerosol oil sprayer! Cook without the extra calories! EVO gives you control-freak control over how much oil you use when cooking.


An amazing, sweet snack that feels like a chip, but is just strawberries! Go ahead and eat the ENTIRE 130 calorie bag!


Tastes like sauces that contain double the calories! This marinade is 45 calories per serving, yet the flavor is so bold that a little goes a long way.


Craving salt or spice? These are vegan, gluten-free, and Non-GMO. You can throw them into a lunch bag or your purse for a little extra oomph. Don’t let the seaweed thing freak you out. They are a great alternative to chips and they pack quite a crunch.


Big, delicious flavor without the fat! Buy several flavors and give your taste buds a varied treat! Splash on tuna, on greens, or on fresh veggies for an extra kick! (I like to put mine in a spray bottle for portion control.)
