Shopping basket crisis can you help?

So my Amazon basket is adding up so I thought before I completely broke the bank (I am meant to be saving after all!) I would like to know your opinion on a few things.


I am extremely interested in buying a portion plate. I am aware it’s an added gadget I probably don’t need however, I think it will really help to re educate myself about food. If I see the correct portion size in front of me then hopefully the visual will help install it in my brain! The plate will help with this until I don’t need it any more. Portion size is a key thing especially when your granny installed the need to finish your plate!

So have you ever used one?

See one?

Have no idea what I’m talking about?!


I am also keen to invest in a spiralizer. I bloody love vegetables (like a lot) but sometimes you get bored of eating them the same way. I also like eating them throughout the day raw or cooked. This gadget looks fun and quirky. It also allows me to eat more veg when I try and cut back from too many carbs.

So I ask the same questions:

Have you ever used one?

See one?

Have no idea what I’m talking about?!

Please let me know your thoughts, suggestions or whatever you like 🙂

It is all greatly appreciated.

  1. I know what a portion plate is. I have never used one, but it seems like it would be a helpful way to teach yourself. I’d say go for that one.

    No earthly idea what a sprializer is.

    Quick question. In the UK, do you say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Christmas”?

    • We tend to say Merry Christmas 🙂 but Happy Christmas works crops up also 🙂

      Thank you, the portion plate is staying firmly in the basket.

      As for the spiralizer basically it’s a tool to turn you’re veg into the shape of noodles/spaghetti etc.

      They are really funky and aren’t too expensive.

      I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2015 is all you hope it will be x
