Portion Control & Budgeting

Hello there,

I wanted to talk about food shopping & food portions today.  I’ve taken a notion recently to watch what I eat, or moreso how much of what I eat. 
I bought a digital food scale in Lidl last week & began my mission to weigh my meals.  I was mortified at how much I’d been piling on my plate & scraping into the bin.  Basically I was piling on weight & throwing money away.

I went food shopping today & had blinkers on to sweeties, chocolate & crisps.  I was intent on buying essentials to cook proper meals with.   
Like the soup mix in the bottom corner of the above photo was £1 & I’ll get maybe 4 bowls from it.

There’s 4 other options.  I’ll be a soup making queen in no time.

When I used to buy a bag of frozen chips I’d shake a random amount of them onto a tray & into the oven they’d go, then into the bin the ones I didn’t eat went.  So this time round with my trusty scales I’m weighing out what I should be eating.

I bought sandwich bags & got busy weighing & filing up the freezer.  I won’t feel bad about having chips now seeing as I’ll be having a normal portion & not weighing them out with my eyes like I used to.

I’m going to make a massive effort not to buy things I really don’t need & check how I’ve done in a month.  Hopefully I’ll be richer, lighter & healthier. 

Thanks so much  reading.
