Adobo peppers always come in cans that have roughly a cup of peppers in each- yet recipes rarely call for more than 1 or 2 as they are so hot. Unless you make mexican every night- you're going to be wondering what to do with the ones you didn't use. With this trick you'll never throw away extra peppers- and you ALWAYS have some handy when you need them.
When you use what you need- wrap the rest individually in little twists of saran wrap making sure to get all the air out. Freeze and they will keep forever- always right there at your fingertips!

Do you have leftover roasted vegetables like onions, zucchini, bell peppers or eggplant? Don't throw the leftovers out! Instead mix these vegetables with some freshly cut herbs and olive oil and serve whole wheat warm toasted rolls or Nature's Own 100% whole wheat English Muffins or bagels. They really are 100% whole wheat!
Before sitting down to eat I put all leftovers away. This ensures that after I'm done eating my portion controlled meal I wont be tempted to nibble as I'm putting away the leftover food from the meal. This is also a good time to pack my lunch for the next day if the leftovers will be used for my lunch.
