Wash, Cut, Grab & Add

This Sparked Me!

This is my motto when trying to eat more fruits and vegetables. After shopping I bring home my produce for "processing". Meaning I "wash" and "cut" up as many fruits and vegetables as possible. This way I'm more prone to eat these when I'm hungry because I can just "grab" vegs and "add" to my soups and salads, and "add" fruit to my smoothies and cereals/oatmeal.

This equals less waste as I eat the produce I buy.
This saves me money.
This ensures that I get my daily recommended servings of fruit and veg. emoticon

    I like having fruit and vegetables prewashed, cut and ready to go. I do this "processing" routine with meat also- I trim the fat and tendons off, then wrap portions and freeze or refrigerate as necessary. This way when I go to fix a meal it's all ready to go! emoticon

    Great idea. Also a little side of peanut butter to dunk your celery in would be new twist.Thanks for the thought.
