Single Serving Size

This Sparked Me!

I use snack size zipper bags to make single serving size packages of snack foods such as pretzels. Since my family doesn't like brown rice, I cook a large amount and freeze single serving sizes for me. I do the same with cold cuts

    Great idea! I do this for my children all the time for their school snacks. Why I have not thought to do the same for myself emoticon makes total sense since I hardly ever think of myself least of all first! Thank you for the tip!

    Just yesterday I cooked up some brown rice in my small crockpot, then divided it into smaller portions. I put several servings into the refrigerator for eating this week, and I froze the rest for future use.

    A single serving of rice is the size of the snack size bag? That must mean that we measure a serving after it's cooked. Is that right?

    That is a great idea, I love those little baggies, they are good for lots of things!
