when I buy fresh fruit, I always prepare it, (peel and dice) then put some in the fridge, some in serving size bags in the freezer. I use the frozen servings in lunch boxes, they keep the food cool and thaw by lunch time. For snacks, I only let them partially thaw, enough for comfortable eating. These are expecially good for hot weather snacks or refreshers at work like construction where you need extra liquid and cooling.
Melons like watermelon or cantelope are great this way Use the more solid fruits as ones like oranges tend to get muchy. A great way to get vitamins, liguid, fiber, treats, healthy and cool off at the same time

My newest treat is to blend 1 cup non fat yogurt into 1 dissolved (and chilled but not set) 4 cup package of light jello. I pour into 4 to go containers and chill to set overnight. I particularlly like orange and strawberry; reminds me of a creamsicle but so much healthier !
I go out to eat once a week or so and bring home half ..I always get pretty much what I want. I noticed that when I brought home leftovers and the fat was cold & congilled..made me think I will seperate as much as I can before I warm them up from now on..thus cutting down on some of the fat.
