I have found the easiest way for me to eat my fruits and veggies during the week is to pack them all on Sunday. I spend about an hour or so cutting up carrots and other veggies and bagging them in serving sizes. I then take my apples/oranges or whatever fruit I have on hand and I put them in groups in the fridge. This makes it easy to grab my healthy snacks each day as I run out the door.

As soon as I get home from the grocery store I go ahead and prep my veggies for snacking.
I wash the fruits & veggies, cut them if necessary and store them properly for freshness. Then when I'm craving a snack I have everything already clean and ready to go! This makes healthy snacking convenient. Sometimes I just need a snack- quick! This does the trick!
The number one thing that worked for me was cooking ahead on weekends so that I have food prepped for the week, having breakfast ready the night before, packing my lunch & snacks, and have dinner menu planned ahead of time. It keps me from the drive-thru & mindless eating!
