Using Containers For Sliced Melons, Fruits And Veggies
Members Were Sparked
When I buy a canteloupe, honeydew melon or watermelon ~ I slice it up and store the prepared fruit in the fridge a plastic lidded shoe box container from the $1 store. The fruit is ready to go and makes meal prep a snap. Also works well for storing prepared veggies such as carrot and celery sticks

I keep tupperware containers of precut fruit chunks and veggie slices in the fridge - ready for when the snacking urge strikes. Cubed melons, grapes, apple slices, even cut up a half dozen plums today...also, bell pepper slices or zucchini strips etc. If you are concerned about the the item(more)
to prevent the items from turning if you are slow to go through it or you are cutting up a large qty. use a vaccuum sealer and the small pkgs are handy to grab and go!
Keep fresh fruits and vegetables washed and ready to eat in the fridge. It's so much easier to grab a cookie than to cut up a honeydew melon. Cut the melon in advance. Keep it in a plastic container. Do this with all your fruits and vegetables and snacking on something healthy becomes much easier.
Prepare raw veggies and fruit before it goes in the fridge.
After getting my groceries and before my fruits and my raw veggies go in the fridge I wash them up and prepare into bite sizes. ie carrot and celery sticks. Apples washed and put into the fruit bowl. Watermelon, cantelope, honeydew melons cut up and put into containers so it's ready to eat now. NO excuses to grab cookies, chips, junk food. 211
