These are all great ideas! I also make extra servings of the foods I like and then store them in snack sized bags or freeze them in those Snap Lock??? containers. The other day I tried so hard to make falafel, but I wanted them to be more substantial, so I added ground turkey to them. I was able to make over 20 of them, so when they cooled off, I put two or three in each little snack bag and froze them. That was about a week ago. I got tired of eating them on the second day anyway! But today, I needed something quick to put in my lunch box, so I just took a bag of three out of the freezer and popped it into my cooler. It turns out I wasn't that hungry, so I popped them into the fridge for tomorrow.
I took the time last week to measure out servings of almonds, my Kashi cereal for the morning, the bread crumbs for salads, and little snack bags filled with carrots, broccoli salad, and a string cheese. You can put the "recipe" in your recipe book on Spark, or "Group" them on your nutrition planner so when you grab a quick bag of whatever, you save time.
Have a great journey!!
