Plan Snacks You Enjoy, And Improve Veggie/fruit Counts!

Choosing a few snacks that are enjoyable, healthy, and easy to fix. I repeat the snacks each day. Seems like I'm never hungry since trying this.
I have chosen to eat (each day) one fresh apple, one raw carrot, one medium banana, and if calories permit, 5 dried prunes, a cup of fresh snap peas. I don't have to decide, it's my plan...easy to carry with me, too. Takes care of the desire for crunchy and sweet stuff. Choose foods you enjoy!

One thing to do, to get your five a day, is to use -those- as your snacks throughout the day. Adding fruits or veggies to your meals, plus a fruit or veggie snack here and there, makes those servings add up. Personally, I enjoy a kiwi or some celery here and there. Add in some baby carrots with a bit of hummus, and it doesn't seem so difficult to get five in anymore!
