Healthy Eating Shortcut!

I realize this is not an EARTH SHATTERING post- but I have been doing this for the past few months and it has made my life so much easier... not to mention healthier!
On Saturday or Sunday I go to the store and stock up on fruits and veggies (Costco is usually my spot for this), I spend 20 minutes or so washing and chopping all of them- then I store them in plastic containers so I have them easily accessible throughout the week. (IF I find a good deal, I also like to make a brisket in the slow cooker and have the meat for several meals that week). I find myself going to the fruit and veggies instead of snacks for me and for the girls, I use the veggies instead of chips or crackers, if the girls want a snack or yogurt I have it all right there, I can throw the veggies in whatever I am cooking for dinner, etc... For ME, this has really revolutionized our eating! (yes, we eat other fruits and veggies also, yes I try to use organic whenever possible, yes I realize the longer they are in there the less nutrients you are eating...but I say...at least we are increasing F&V intake!!!)

  1. I love the bright colors! My daughter's school calls it God's Rainbow and she is eating those brightly colored fruits and veggies with a smile. YAY for making it easier on the Mama. Thanks for the tip.

  2. I totally agree! Having it all prepped and planned saves money because you aren't throwing out food...and encourages you to reach for a healthy snack! I can't believe someone would have something negative to say about this...haha...but it takes all kinds. :) Love your blog, btw!
