Saving Time On Lunches Etc.

This Sparked Me!

I do my big grocery shop on Sunday then put everything pre-measured into ziplock baggies with the calories written on the front so we can mix and match to get our calories for the day. It takes an hour or so, but then everything is grab and go of a morning!

I bought a cheapy scale at the grocery store and always use the online "how many calories does ____ have?" to get exact measurements. And I swear by my measuring cups!

    I do that on Saturday mornings, although it takes me more than an hour. It's well worth the time to make a once a week mess in the kitchen for weekday meals on the table in within 10 mins.

    I also like to have things ready for the week and use plastic containers or baggies way to go

    I do something similar but I really like your idea for writing the calories on the bags. Thanks for sharing this tip.

    I never thought of listing the calories on the front of the container! What a terrific idea. Thanks!
