Every week I use 1 cup and 2 cup glass bowls with lids to set up lunches and snacks for the week. When I cook dinner I do not put the leftovers in a big bowl to be forgotten, I measure an appropriate lunch time amount and put in a glass bowl with a strong sealed lid.
This ensures we use up our leftovers and there are no trips to fast food since what we have available is so much better anyway! (I did get my glass bowls at the dollar store, well worth the investment!)

Eating sugar snap peas instead of chips or other high carb snacks has helped me stay on track to healthy eating. Using a scale and portion control has taught me to serve healthy portions not just serve.
using 1 cup containers to pack for lunch is key to portion control for lunch too.
