Healthy Reminders

It’s all too easy to load up on carb-rich side dishes or pour a giant glass of wine without even thinking about whether the portion size is appropriate. Sometimes we need a gentle reminder of what’s healthy. That’s what Wine-Trax offers. Created by designer and entrepreneur Gail Curtis, Wine-Trax is a line of everyday glassware and dinnerware with frosted lines for measuring drinks and food. The beauty of Wine-Trax is its subtlety. The frosted rings on the glasses (marking 4, 6 and 8 ounces) are discreet and elegant. Cereal/snack bowls use the same convention to measure 1/3, 2/3 and 1 cup (and come with a resealable plastic lid). For the dinner plate, Gail designed frosted lines that divide the surface area according to food portions recommended by dietitians and wellness professionals: 1/4 plate for lean protein, 1/4 plate for whole grain and starch, and 1/2 plate for fruits and vegetables. Gail was inspired to create Wine-Trax because she wanted an effortless way to track portions without interrupting the enjoyment of a great meal. Each piece in her collection offers a visual reminder that can help reinforce wellness goals every day, without bringing measuring cups and scales to the dinner table.

    Greetings! We are thrilled to be featured on Daily Grommet today. I’ve tried a zillion diets, books, weight loss programs and clinics and have finally realized the key is portion control. My elegantly designed dinnerware sets a beautiful table and allows you to monitor portions discreetly, without the need for measuring or weighing. If you have any questions, I’m here to answer them!

    I gave Wine-Trax glasses to a couple of friends who are also wanting to be aware of their portions--we all think they are great for drinking (and measuring at the same time) juice, wine, soda, or any other beverage.

    Received Wine-Trax trio as a gift and I've used them every day since. Super easy reminder that healthy eating should consist of mostly veggies and smaller portions of protein and carbs. Keeps me on track with my cereal servings too. The sets make great gifts, easy, elegant and practical. I know I sound like a commercial for them but they are such a wonderful product.
