Healthy Snacking Tips - Fruits and Veggies

Our family is trying to eat more fruits and veggies.
One way we're accomplishing our goal is making healthy snacks as easy to grab as chips.

Way back in college I learned that commercial kitchens do the prep ahead of time.

Grab and go is our new motto.

So, just like in the college cafeteria, I'm now taking seedless grapes off the vine and putting them in water in the fridge.

Same goes for carrots.
(Well, not the vine part.)

And, I sometimes cut up celery sticks, etc.
Every few days, just change the water out.
(But, it's even nicer when they're all eaten!)

Sure I could chop carrot sticks, but the baby carrots were free with a coupon. Score!

What are you doing to ensure that you eat your fruits and veggies?

Totally agree - if I have something prepped I will be as likely to grab that as a snack as I would chips. I have never stored my fruit or veggies in water - will have to try this!
