I have found the more I cook, the more I eat so I've started weighing + cooking single portions.

I cannot believe how much money we have at the end of the month now that we cook at home more often. We have saved money AND can control our portions, calories, etc. It's more work, but home-cooked food tastes the best. Double the recipe and freeze half for the nights you don't want to cook. Save the meals out for the rare special occasion.
