on-the-go portion control.
let's be real, food is everywhere. it brings people together, it brings comfort and it creates memories.
so why should we have to restrict or say no to dates when we are on a plan?
most restaurants have gotten pretty good with listing their nutritional values on their sites, which makes it a lot easier to track your macros.
but what if they don’t?
you can’t bring measuring cups with you everywhere, BUT what you didn’t know is that you already HAVE measuring cups attached to you…
use these tricks to measuring the food on your plate without anyone knowing!
fist = 1 cup
rice, pasta, fruit & veggies
palm = 3oz
meat, fish & poultry
handful = 1oz
nuts & dried fruits
2 handfuls = 1oz
chips, popcorn & pretzels
thumb = 1oz
nut/seed butters & hard cheeses
thumb tip = 1tsp
oils, mayo, butter & sugar
there you have it. go out, indulge & still be able to track!

java the pump.
make time for breakfast.
we hear it all the time "I'm always on the go in the morning and never have time for breakfast".
yet one of three things happens...
1. you have time for coffee
2. you stop for coffee & a donut
3. you don't eat until the afternoon and you grab everything in-sight
excuses lead to a bad routine and we don't want one of those!
here's a quick fix for your grab-n-go coffee routine
don't eat it all at one time.
you purchase your favorite snack, but it comes in a package with the "serving size" listed. what we think is a serving, sometimes isn't actually a serving.
how do we fix this? we re-package our favorite snacks according to their serving size!
not only does this help you from over eating, but it's great in a pinch or when you are on the go!
seal it & save it.
Ever buy something and think you'll use it all? Yet you forget about it and in a couple of weeks you find that it's now gone stale?!
Wasted money and wasted food, who wants either of those?
We have this cute little hack for you!
on the go snack-pack.
