Calorie Bargain: #Slim & Sage Plates
The Why: The plates are really beautiful. I was impressed. I’ve seen other portion-control plates that aren’t anywhere near as attractive. Plus, Slim & Sage plates are easy to use. The design is accurately described by the manufacturer as having a “gentle curve and gorgeous interlaced lines” that is “ideal for everyday use or casual entertaining.”
The Health Bonus: According to the company, they “collaborated with leading experts at Harvard and Stanford, read the available research on portion control and #diet and distilled it down to evidence from Mayo Clinic, Harvard, NIH and the American College of Cardiology, on which our patent pending products are based. The result? Plates that can help reduce caloric intake by up to 59%.”
How It Works: The 9-inch porcelain plate’s geometric design is divided as follows: one-quarter for lean protein, one-quarter for whole grains, and one-half for vegetables.
The Price: $99 for set of four plates.
