Keep The Measure With The Food



I have several sets of measuring cups around. I keep a 1/2 C measure right in the bag of frozen blueberries I get at BJ's. I do this with granola, too (1/4 C ). Saves time and I'm less likely to overdo the portion size if the scoop is right there.

  • The best part is you don't have to use actual measuring cups.... Find items around the house/kitchen that can substitute. For example:
    -The 5 oz container that Dannon Greek Yogurt comes in is about a cup.
    -The scoop that comes with drink powders is about a tablespoon. - by KIMBUG725
