How many times have you gone to the grocery store, stacked your cart sky-high full of fresh, yummy produce, ready to conquer a week full of temptation, only to end up letting those apples rot or that lettuce wilt?! I know I’m not the only one guilty of produce neglect!! Next time you stock up on fresh fruits and veggies, wash them as soon as you get home and set them in a visible, easily accessible bowl. Leaving those crunchy greens beneath all of your other refrigerator clutter is a surefire way to let them wither away! The more visible those healthy choices are the more likely you are to choose them over their fatty, processed counterparts.
Now… I dare you to take it even a step further. Take an extra 10 minutes after washing your produce to pre-portion out those fruit and veggies into containers to have on hand. Having easy grab ‘n’ go snacks will you keep you out of the drive-thru and on track with your healthy living goals! A little preparation sure goes a long way!
What’s your favorite way to make sure you stick to your healthy eating goals? Tell me what you do to prep for the week, and how you make sure you’re getting all of your servings of fruits and veggies!!
