Storage Containers - Portion Control



A lot of the food containers now come in "measurement cup" sizes. This makes it easy to control your portion size. If you know that one serving is 1/2 cup or 1 cup use the corresponding container size. Some of the larger containers (i.e. 2 cup) have markings on the side - 1/2 cup, 1 cup etc. These containers are great when you make a large recipe and want to freeze a serving for lunch.
