Have you ever notice that if you look at your reflection on the outside of a spoon it's like a mirror, but if you look on the inside of the spoon, your reflection is upside-down? Don't believe me -- grab a spoon and check it out! Also...
Could this be a metaphor for some of our lives -- what appears to be alright on the outside is actually upside-down on the inside. Food for thought....
In order to simplify meal preparation, I keep several often used veggies chopped and stored in 5 cup containers in the fridge. When I begin a recipe, it's great to have the onion, celery, bell peppers, etc all ready to go!
Purchasing matching containers helped motivate me to do this and the inside of my fridge looks tidy and organized.
Most people hate having to weigh and measure their food portions. To save time, get a plate that has three section in it. The largest section should be for your salad/veggies serving, one of the smaller ones is for your protein serving and the other one is for your carbs/starches.
No fair piling on the food though it has to fit inside the section neatly
