Fresh is best. Team up Healthy Steps portion control kitchen tools with the freshest ingredients straight from the garden to serve simple, wholesome meals every time and make sure everyone is getting their proper portions.
President and CEO of Healthy Steps by Jokari, Doug Taeckens, shared three tips for simplifying meal-making this summer plus a delicious recipe. “Summer is the best season for enjoying nutrition-packed, simple-to-prepare recipes, along with plenty of fresh produce. Enjoy this recipe from Healthy Steps today.”
• Control your portions – The keys to eating right are easy; fill half of your plate with fruits, vegetables or salad and control those portions on the other half of the plate. If you serve too much food, you eat too much food. The Healthy Steps Portion Control Serving Set does all the work for you. Serve the perfect portion sizes of protein, vegetable and starch right from the stove.
• Keep it fresh – Seasonal ingredients straight from the earth offer not only the best vitamins and nutrients, but they deliver the best taste. Plant your own or visit your local farmers market for fresh-from-the-farm goodness. Healthy Steps Produce Saver keeps light away from your potatoes and onions, preventing them from sprouting. The breathable fabric allows produce to breathe and extends the shelf life of onions, garlic, mushrooms, beets, potatoes and more. The bag is labelled so you know what you have stored, while a handy drawstring closure provides easy access to the vegetables.
• Measure recipe portions – Raw almonds are loaded with healthy mono-unsaturated fats. The new Healthy Steps Nut Bowl and Scoop makes it easy to enjoy nuts in portion-controlled servings. Just use the bowl’s lid to scoop nuts from bulk packaging into the nut bowl. The bowl measures one or two servings – just right for a healthy snack or to measure and top off a dinner with a proper portion of nuts.
