One upcoming product that caught my eye was the Flavor Magic portion control sheets -- dry marinade sheets that are pre-cut to reflect the recommended portion size of fish, chicken or beef.
Rather than weigh foods or eyeball portions, you tear a 4" by 3" sheet, place your protein of choice on it, and let it marinade for approximately 20 minutes (the time it takes for the spices on the sheet to transfer over to the piece of food.)
At that point, you simply rip the sheet off, throw it out, and cook your protein to your liking.
It's quite an inventive tool, as it takes care of portion control and healthy flavoring in one easy step that does not require cleanup.
The sheets are available in a variety of flavors -- each providing only four calories and one gram of sugar, and ranging in sodium content from 120 to 160 milligrams (a mere 5 percent of the recommended daily maximum value).
This is precisely the creativity that is desperately needed in the nutrition field.
For more information, please visit the Flavor Magic website (NOTE: You may begin ordering the product via the company's website on November 17.)
I truly wish these innovators the best of luck and hope their product catches on.
