Avoid Seconds

This Sparked Me!

To avoid eating seconds, before eating dinner I pack the leftovers in individual sized containers to take to work for lunch. Since all the leftovers are already packed away, it is hard to go for seconds.

    I'm not the one who eats the leftovers for lunch... so I ask the "boys" to put their lunches together immediately after serving up dinner so there are no seconds. They are limited to their lunch size by the container it goes in. If there is only enough for one of them it is first come first serve and if there is more than that they put them in the freezer. I realized it is working because on Fridays and Saturdays we are all more tempted to have seconds.

    Kind of like a TV dinner - only one serving per sitting! - Great Tip!
