Have you ever felt like reaching in the fridge for a snack only there was nothing there ready to eat? Maybe you're in a time crunch or maybe you just don't feel like rinsing and cutting up the fruit or vegetables. When that happens, what do you grab? Do you grab that old slice of cake or some cookies or chips because all of those things are easier? There's one easy way to fix that behavior.
You could be super ambitious and prep snacks and meals for the week but if you are new to food prep, it's best to start slowly. Otherwise, the task could be overwhelming. Living a more nutritious life is not a diet and it shouldn't be hard work. It is a change of lifestyle. Eventually, eating nutritiously becomes habit. Until then, give yourself as many "wins" as possible, even if they are small. Nothing says VICTORY better than needing a snack, going to your fridge and grabbing some of your favorite fruit and simply eating it, with no work. It's satisfying and you can feel great about it because you made a great choice. YAY YOU!
