When I bring home veggies from the store, I wash them, cut them up or slice them, put them in baggies and put them in the fridge. Then when I want a quick snack, everything is ready and a lot more accessible.

It's true. The times I take to prep all my veggies after I get home from the store & before they get put away, the more I am apt to cook with them or snack from them because it takes less time when I want to cook or eat. Takes just a bit of time at first but pays off BIG later....104
Every veggie possible to prep is ready for a meal, cooked or not...snacks, sandwiches, salads, soups and new recipes!
I plan my meals, I plan on 1 - 2 servings of fruit and veggies with each small meal. I eat 4 - 6 small meals a day. Everyday without fail I am eating my produce. I also have veggies ready for a snack on the go.
Prepare your produce (wash, cut up, etc....) and place them in clear containers in the fridge. This makes it easier for preparing meals and finding healthy snacks when the fruit and veggies are all cut up and ready to eat.
