To be perfectly honest, even though I love fruits and veggies, taking the time and effort to eat healthy foods during my busy weeks isn’t easy. By the time I get home from my long days at my internship, the last thing I want to do is spend time chopping veggies for dinner (or to pack my lunch for the next day!). But I’m always trying to be conscious of what I put in my body, and I know that getting enough fruits and veggies is super important.
This year, I started a new habit that’s really been helping me save time during the week and stay healthy. Every weekend after my grocery haul, I spend an hour or so washing and chopping up veggies and fruits for the long week. And you guys, the habit has stuck. In today’s post, I’m going to share a little behind-the-scenes peek at how I set myself up for a successful week of snacking!
One: buy produce that your family likes
I’ve been buying lots of grapefruit (so cheap here in NC!), these sweet baby peppers, and lots of seasonal fruit.
Two: wash and chop
I always make sure to wash all my fruits and veggies really well before cutting them up. Look at this gorgeous grapefruit!
Three: store for easy snacking
Tada! Now I have lots of healthy snacks already prepped and ready to eat. This helps me stay on track, and I love that I can just pop some fruits and veggies into a smaller tupperware and toss them in my lunch bag for the next day. If you have any tips for making healthy eating easier that works for you, let me know!
