portion control plates

Everything in moderation: You’ve heard the motto before, but how often do you still pile your plate sky-high? Take the guesswork out of portioned eating with the Slim & Sage plate. The easy-to-understand design makes it easy to eat sensibly without feeling like you’re depriving yourself. The 9-inch porcelain plate is simply designed: one-fourth of the plate for lean protein, one-fourth of the plate for whole grains and one-half of the plate for vegetables. Plus, the discreet design is perfect for both casual eating and everyday entertaining.

You can buy your own set of four Slim & Sage plates or enter in the comments for a chance to win one. Just let us know, in the comments, how you control portions. The contest starts at 10:00 a.m. EST today, and ends on Friday, August 2 at 5 p.m. EST.

We’re giving away one set of Slim & Sage plates to one randomly-selected commenter. You must include your email address in the “Email” field when submitting your comment so we can communicate with you if you’re a winner.

You may only comment once to be considered and you don’t have to purchase anything to win; a purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Odds depend on total number of entries. Void where prohibited. Only open to legal residents of 50 U.S. states, D.C. or Puerto Rico, and you must be at least 18 to win. For the first day of the giveaway, all entries (answers) must be entered between 10:00 a.m. EST on July 31 and 5 p.m. EST on August 2, 2013. Subject to full official rules. By leaving a comment on the blog, you acknowledge your acceptance to the Official Rules. ARV of each prize: $99.

    I like to keep it simple and use a good 'ol fashioned measuring cup!

  2. Wendy says:

    Use bread plate as a dinner plate.

    Measuring cups/spoons, and a kitchen sale!

  4. Dee says:

    I use different-sized scoops (ice-cream type scoops) to keep a handle on portion control. These plates are a great idea. I have only ever seen some that look like they were styled for a very young child. These would not be embarrassing to use!

  5. Peggy says:

    I use measuring cups and a small scale, also eat my meals on smaller plates

  6. Dale says:

    If it's a food I love, and know I have trouble with, I only buy one serving.

  7. Anie says:

    I find that making a point to be aware of portions dramatically helps me to keep my portions in check

  8. pinky750 says:

    I try to use my eye to control my portion control. It doesn't always work though. That's why I would love to have these plates!

  9. Joni says:

    I control portions the old fashioned way…measuring what I can and eye-balling the rest. I'm probably not that good at it, because when I mindfully do the 1/4,1/4.1/2 portions my plate looks dramatically different from what it usually looks like.

  10. josie says:

    I control portions by serving only half of what I want to actually eat. I figure if I am truly hungry for more I can get up and serve another plate. The act of having to get up and get more gives me pause as to whether I really need more or if I am getting more out of boredom.
