It’s a simple solution for those struggling with portion control: invest in a 4 to 6 inch cast iron skillet. Whenever you’re cooking, load up more than 1/2 of the skillet with veggies, and the rest with a lean source of protein. This way, you’re automatically limited to what you can fit in the skillet— which equals no-brainer portion control! No measuring and no fussing required! And all you have to do is pop the skillet into the oven to broil!
My favorite combos? Load up a cast iron skillet with broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, then add 4-6 egg whites; top with sliced tomatoes and broil at 450 degrees in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Or arrange a salmon filet with a mixture of veggies, then season with fresh herbs and spices— whatever you prefer! Broil at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the salmon becomes flakey. Really, the possibilities are endless… and easy to boot!
Bonus: this is also a great option for those cooking for one! Or, if you’re a busy mom with a picky family who maybe won’t eat the same things you do while dieting, this is a great solution as well!
