you to eat "family style" and still be portion conscious, as these serving tools are already sized to dish out your perfect serving. With a slotted spoon for vegetables, a solid spoon for starches and a spatula for protein, you won't find yourself guessing anymore.

Slimware - $37.50 for a set of 4 plates
Slimware plates are quite possibly the sneakiest portion tool we've seen! Masquerading as stylish dinnerware, each pattern features 3 areas (swirls, flowers or leaves) that subtly show the diner where to place their food. Vegetables fit in the largest area, carbs/side dishes in the medium area, and protein in the smallest.

Measure Up Bowls - $13.99 - $19.99
Cereals, fruit, soups, pastas, salads... the Measure Up Bowl is perfect for anything you'd regularly eat out of a bowl! While the outside of the bowl is a classic white porcelain, the inside has pre-measured ridges showing you 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 or 1/2, 1, 1.5 and 2 cup increments (depending on the size bowl you're using). No more guessing!

Wine-Trax - $28.50 for set of 2
Wine is be a tempting treat... and over-indulgence can be easy, but with Wine-Trax you'll know exactly what kind of "pour" you're getting! These glasses have 3 frosted lines measuring 4, 6, and 8 ounce pours.

Salad Dressing Lid - $7.98
A salad can be a great lunch or dinner, but all too often a heavy hand while dispensing dressing can ruin the best of intentions. This lid screws onto the top of most store-bought plastic salad dressing bottles and dispenses one 2-tablespoon serving at a time. Just squeeze the bottle to fill the top serving chamber, remove the dressing lid and pour a proper serving over your salad! Want to make your own dressing? Here's a similar tool that comes with a dressing cruet and the portion top!

Pasta Baskets - $8.50
Whole-wheat pasta can reduce the risk of stroke, cancer, diabetes and heart disease... but it's important that you don't eat too much of it! With the Healthy Steps Pasta Portion Basket, you can measure, cook and strain one serving of pasta with one utensil. Four of these collapsible, silicone baskets fit in one pot.
