Eat Ice Cream From A 1/4 Measuring Cup


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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

    Great idea!

    I do that too! I also usually add 1/3 cup of a cereal (I have been loving Trader Joe's Twigs, Flakes and Clusters) adds a nice crunch and lots of fiber so that I feel full

    Good idea.! For me, it doesn't take a very big portion to make me satisfied. emoticon
