I refuse to pay more for less. Those cute little individual packages of snacks for kids and other controlled portion needs are every where! They are bad for my budget and the environment. I just measure out 100 calorie servings or 1 serving size and store them in tiny reusable bowls with lids. The kids love to help and it might take me 20 minutes a month. It also helps to make sure i do not grab the whole box of cheese-its when watching a movie! 432
I also pre-cut celery, carrots and other fruits and veggies so they become a quick and covenant snack.
Cutting up and washing raw veggies as soon as I get home ensures I'll always have healthy snacks in the refrigerator!
Veggie trays at the grocery store are easy and convenient when first getting used to raw veggie snacks, but I always seem to have whatever vegetables I like least in the assortment go bad and stink up the refrigerator! This way, I get what I want, and slice, dice, & wash as part of grocery unpacking
