Dividing Food Into Servings

This Sparked Me!

I always divide my food into single servings. For example, with Kashi cereal, I will divide the entire box into serving sizes, put them in zip baggies and put them back into the box. This way when I am getting ready for my day at work, I just grab a bag and I am good to go. I do the same thing with Wheat Thins, etc. It works great and I always know what I am eating and how much!

    I do this trick too!! I do it with my lunch meat, pickles, & veggies too. I weigh it all, put in zip bags, write the weight or portion size on the bag with a sharpie, and throw it in the drawer of the fridge. In the morning rush to get to work, I just open the drawer and grab one of everything and I'm out the door in 10 seconds! It's a huge time saver and the weight or portion size is right on the bag so easy to plug into Sparkpeople to keep track of calories! emoticon

    Hello,

It is good to see that I am not the only one that use portion control.
