Measure! Measure! Measure!

This Sparked Me!

Any snack items (nuts, dried fruit, trail mix)I bring into my house, I immediately measure into containers with the correct serving size. I find it is too easy to grab a bag of something and eat several servings without even realizing it. Plus the containers make it easy to grab and go as well.

    Great tip! Even my hubby has found that he likes to have pre measured snacks so it is helping him with a little portion control, too.

    I do this as well! Great tip. It's so much easier to grab a little baggie and go with a busy lifestyle, too!

    My measurements include a handful of them.
I love all kinds of nuts,so have to be careful on that hands full.
