Cooking For One? Make The Same Recipe But Immediately Separate One Portion And Freeze The Extra Portions



I have tons of trouble with portion control when I cook. So, when I make a recipe that results in 4 servings, I try to immediately weigh out one portion to use, and freeze the rest in single portion containers - I label them with the recipe name & date using masking tape & a black sharpie.

More Information:

This method insures that us single folks don't get bored eating the same thing over and over! You will eventually have a freezer stocked with many varieties of homemade single portion entrees, labeled and ready to roll. You can also write the calorie or carb count on the label!

  • That is exactly what I do, and it works great. I always have healthy food handy if I don't feel like cooking at any time. I just go to the freezer and there it is. - by GROEDER
  • I feel the same way. It would make life so much easier if I would do my own frozen dinners! - by RIGBIT
