I don’t know about your kids, but my kiddos like to do as much for themselves as possible…pouring their own drinks, saucing their own food, etc. (of course that doesn’t always apply to cleaning and chores).
Low sodium tamari (we use that since it is a gluten-free soy-sauce substitute) makes an appearance at our dinner table quite often and for the longest time that meant over-poured tamari aka tamari rice soup.
I wished I could remember for sure where I heard this tip (I think it was at the Healthy Lifestyle Expo last year). Put the tamari / soy-sauce in a spray bottle.
It works like a charm. There are no tamari spills anymore and you tend to use MUCH less in general since the tamari is evenly distributed on the top of your rice. That is good news. Even better news is the fact that using a spray bottle for your tamari results in putting less sodium in your body.
Do you have any fun food tips? Any tricks your family uses?

I love that!
I make my overnight oats in my “almost” empty peanut butter jars. That way, I’m sure to use up all the peanut butter in the jar & it’s so good in overngiht oats.
That is a seriously awesome idea…it is next to impossible to get out those last bits of PB. Brilliant!!!
We use the small airline onboard luggage approved toiletry spray type bottles for tamari, apple cider vinegar etc … works a treat, even and gentle coverage. Only came about this by accident when wanting to take some small quantities with me on an interestate trip.
I am loving these ideas!
I plan to try this soon: putting cinnamon and turmeric in salt shakers to keep on the table instead of salt (I got the idea from Kripalu yoga center in Mass.)
Oh that’s a good one Angela…I like the idea of putting spices in salt shakers!
