You know the drill. You go to cook pasta, rice or even just make popcorn and you end up with way too much. Nobody ever seems to really know what a portion of anything looks like – and that makes it tricky to cook the right amount!
Leftovers of grains end up sitting in the fridge and going bad, while you run out of spinach because it always shrinks more than you expect when you cook it. This makes it impossible to budget because who knows how long that packet of quinoa will last? Certainly not me!
That’s why I created this easy guide for common ingredients so you never end up cooking twice as much pasta as you actually need again.
Plus, when you’re cooking the right amount for you to eat then you end up overeating less often – after all, once the cooked food is on your plate it feels like a waste not to eat it all!
Get your printable now and keep it in the kitchen for whenever you’re cooking – I laminated mine to prevent spills from ruining it, but sticking it to the fridge is also a good plan!
