There are multiple food options available to me
from supermarkets and fast foods and restaurants
and bakeries and the cooking I do at home.
I overbuy, and I overcook.
I've not been able to control these behaviors,
....although God Knows I've tried....
and this makes the issue of Food Storage essential for me.
When I was a child, I frequently heard people say that
their eyes were bigger than their stomach.
Although, of course, I understood what the saying meant...
some of my overweight and obese relatives clearly had very large stomachs
and generally ate as much as their eyes caused them to put on their plates.
Well... that saying hold true for me.
What I buy and what I cook...
is far more than the amount that should go into my stomach.
Since I haven't been able to control my behavior at the initial level,
...I overbuy and I overcook.,
I've had to address it at the next level..
the level between obtaining the food and ingesting the food.
Storage involves delaying that food ingestion.
My success at weight-loss and at maintenance of that weight-loss
requires that I don't eat everything that I buy or cook.
Sometimes I have to throw food away,
but my preference is to store it away for another eating occasion.
Food Storage is a really big issue in my life,
and making that task into a simple and easy Habit
has become essential for me.
I've addressed my food storage methods in several videos
which are located under Tips & Tricks of my RECIPE section.
Dealing with Leftovers - involves storage of leftover solid foods.
More About Dealing with Leftovers - involves storage of leftover liquid type foods.
Storing Cookies - involves storage of leftover small baked items like cookies, and cookie dough.
The video below demonstrates my technique for storing fruit and cream pies.
