Just yesterday I embarked on a three 3 week effort to get in great shape before Memorial Day weekend. I’m trying to increase my physical activity, and get myself on a strict, fruits/veggies/protein only diet (bye bye carbs :(). One day down, and I’m feeling great!
I have no problem eating healthy, I just don’t like how it always seems to be so inconvenient to do so. Whenever I feel a healthy streak coming on, I get ambitious and buy a ton of fruits & veggies- but many times they end up going bad because I’m too lazy to cut them up or wash them when I’m in the mood to snack- and in turn I end up eating junk food #fail.
I recently discovered a way to avoid that problem, so I spent Sunday afternoon doing just so…
I pre-washed, cut and bagged everything!
Now my fridge is stocked with fruits and veggies, ready at my fingertips. It makes healthy snacking at home much easier, and packing a healthy lunch simpler as well. I’m ultimately saving money since nothing goes to waste, I’m filling up on healthy foods, and not feeling as guilty about snacking since I’m avoiding more tempting, junk food options.
I wish I were this ambitious about healthy eating all of the time, but you never know- maybe it’ll become routine and stick. Here’s to hoping!
Happy snacking. 😉
So inspiring!!! I started the 30 day shred this week, so it is always nice to aee other ideas for eating healthy. Also like to known I’m not the other one suffering 😉 Your refrigerator looks so healthy. Congrats. :/
Thanks for reading, Julie! 🙂 I completely agree- it’s always nice to find others working towards similar goals for support when trying to diet! Good luck with your shred- I’m hoping I can stick it out till Memorial Day!
i just discovered your blog and it seems great.
About the bags, this is genius!!! i never thought about that.
And it’s perfect because i’m going in holidays next week, and decided to eat only fruits & veggies for the last week before bikini!
Thank you so much for sharing this idea 😉
You’re welcome! So glad I could help. I love bagging fruits & veggies, I just bagged some fresh grapes & cherries last night! Thanks for reading, I hope you come back! 🙂
