Keep The Measure With The Food

This Sparked Me!

I have several sets of measuring cups around. I keep a 1/2 C measure right in the bag of frozen blueberries I get at BJ's. I do this with granola, too (1/4 C ). Saves time and I'm less likely to overdo the portion size if the scoop is right there.

    The best part is you don't have to use actual measuring cups.... Find items around the house/kitchen that can substitute. For example:
-The 5 oz container that Dannon Greek Yogurt comes in is about a cup.
-The scoop that comes with drink powders is about a tablespoon.
