    Fruit and Vegies - Natural Portion Control

    By Brenda Kohlmyer

    Cooking for one person sometimes seems challenging when so many things in the grocery store are packaged for two or three or six or eight servings. One way around this is moving to a diet that relies on fresh fruit and vegetables. Natural portion control is built into apples, pears, tomatoes, avocados, potatos, celery, jicama, and a host of other items you'll find in the fresh section at most grocery stores.

    Frozen fruit and vegetables are also a great way to maintain portion control in your everyday cooking and snacking.

    • Take a cup of frozen raspberries to work as a mid-morning snack.
    • Measure 1/4 cup of frozen corn to cook with dinner.
    • Blend frozen strawberries into a glass of milk for a late night smoothie.
