I was visiting my parents yesterday and was reminded of the fantastic habit of having cut up vegetables in the house. Growing up, there were always cut up carrots, celery, radishes and peppers in the fridge. When one went grocery shopping, the vegetables were immediately cleaned and shredded and sliced to have available when a hunger craving presented itself.
Yesterday, promptly upon our arrival, the container of pre-cut vegetables was placed upon the table and we immediately started snacking, enjoy the colours and flavours. 10 minutes of work after grocery shopping can make a big difference to get more vegetables into the system.
What a great reminder for all of us.
