Chocolate & Candy

Those things can be downright addictive, not to mention overloaded with sugar and calories. These better-for-you versions will be your new BFFs!

Muffins & Cake

Can’t trust yourself to stick to a single serving? Instead of baking a full batch of muffins or an entire cake, whip up one of these portion-controlled creations in the microwave!

Ice Cream

Really? We're expected to stop after 1/2 cup of ice cream? Not gonna happen. That’s why we LOVE eat-the-pint ice cream with super-low calorie counts. Single-serving novelty bars are also great for portion control… We even have DIY versions!
