- Keep mini bottles of wine on hand or single-serve boxes of apple juice to make marinades, sauces and dressings.
- Prowl grocery store salad bars so you can buy small amounts of the whole grains and vegetables only you will eat.
- Buy items that are individually frozen (sometimes labeled IQF) so you can pull out a single piece of chicken or just a few shrimp.
- Plan ways to use things up: Use the rest of those canned beans in a salad or mix the remains of the coconut milk with broth for cooking rice.
