Default Nuts management- egg carton solution!

So after eating too many nuts, I took an empty carton of eggs, measured out 15 nuts into each space, and voila! Like a pill box.

Just please be sure you wash that egg carton thoroughly (if it's plastic). It's not recommended to reuse egg cartons for food use:

Quote:
Is it safe to reuse egg cartons?

Eggs are washed and sanitized before being packed in clean, brand new egg cartons, eliminating bacteria that may have been present on the egg shell. While the cartons and eggs are clean after they are processed, there is still the potential for the eggs and carton to become contaminated via cross-contamination, either at the store, during handling, and/or storage in the refrigerator at home. The Egg Safety Center would recommend discarding egg cartons in the trash and not reusing them.

A safer option would be to use the plastic ones that out around now (for easter) at the dollar store, and places like walmart or kmart, if you can brave the candy section.

Or a plastic ice cube tray would work, if you put plastic wrap or foil over it to protect it.

How did you settle on 15 nuts? Likely because it is about a ounce, right?
I have the same problem, hard to stop once you start with them.

How many nuts are in a serving deprends on the size of the nut. You get 28 pistacios, 28 almonds, 20 peanuts, for example.

Yucky, those egg cartons aren't very enticing. You're better off buying a kitchen scale and measuring your ounces out for real.
