You’re back to work and back to school, and you need to make sure that you have healthy snacks on hand so that you can fuel yourself through the day. Sugary snacks may give you a quick energy boost, but they will leave you crashing very soon, seeking the next sugary snack, until the next crash… and so goes the cycle. By the end of the day you’ve consumed a bunch of non-food that causes you to gain weight, and even worse is detrimental to your health. And by consuming this stuff, by default, you haven’t eaten real food that builds your health.
Introducing the VEGGIE BOX. This may sound simple, but it requires some planning and organizing.
Get yourself some reusable containers that are large enough to hold a decent amount of veggies. A container that holds 10 carrot sticks isn’t going to do it. If you’re hankering for a snack you need a snacking quantity of veggies.
I save some greens boxes and packed these veggies in these greens boxes. They are easy to transport and provide a decent amount for snacking on throughout the day.
Pick up a variety of vegetables that you enjoy, including some that require little or no prep work like snap peas, grape tomatoes, and baby carrots. Others that require cutting/peeling are cucumber, cauliflower, celery, peppers, radishes, green beans, and kohlrabi.
Enjoy these on their own, or bring along a dip like guacamole or hummous.
MAKE SURE YOU PLAN: Add these veggies to your shopping. Then set aside a time to prep them. Make it a priority because your health is a priority!
