Weight-Loss Tip: Pack Your Leftovers Right Away

Healthy Eating Tip: Pack Your Leftovers Right Away

If you've been cooking more and eating out less in the New Year, you've probably realized not only how much money you're saving on dinner, but on how just making a bit more can save you money, time, and calories when you bring those leftovers to work for lunch. But one problem with making a huge serving of delicious dinner is that all that food can tempt you into eating more than you'd like to. The solution? Box up your leftovers at the same time you're serving dinner.

Have your lunch container ready (we like these BPA-free options) when you're done cooking, as soon as you serve out your dinner; portion your leftovers into your lunch container. You'll be less tempted to go back for seconds that you don't really need or to graze later on in the evening when you're finally packing your lunch. For more healthy lunch to-dos, read our tips on bringing leftovers to work here.
