An ice cream serving is usually 1/2 cup. Put it into a 1/4 Measuring Cup & eat it from there. It satisfies my taste buds & tricks my fat craving demons all at the same time. If I want more, I dish up another 1/4 cup. It feels like I'm eating seconds but really it's only 1 serving
Equipment Needed: 1/4 Measuring Cup, spoon
Buy extra measuring cups and keep the cup in the container so it's always handy. For example, I keep the 1/2 cup measuring cup in my oatmeal box, and I use it for the scoop. Plastic measuring cups are cheap and this keeps me honest and on track.
