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.
I invested in smaller reusable container for taking my lunch. First I make a larger portion of a recipe, like my breakfast oatmeal, or black bean and corn salsa, and then I package it in the smaller containers so it's ready to grab when I'm off to work. Exact one cup size containers keep me from cheating, or adding just a little more. 9
