Stick To Whole FoodsOne of the tempting conveniences we are faced with on a daily basis when it comes to snacks and meals are: packaged foods. They are cheap, quick, and found just about everywhere. The problem with these foods is that as a way to be affordable and more filling, many of them include peanuts and a variety of other nuts. The easiest and most widely available alternatives are whole food based snacks - this includes sliced veggies and fruits. Pre-packaged containers of ready to eat produce are becoming more available, even in gas stations and corner convenience stores.
- Clean and chop all the carrots, sweet peppers, apples, oranges, celery, and cucumbers you would want to eat during the week.
- Use a simple mixture of lemon and water on the apples and any other produce that might brown.
- Portion them out in easy-to-open containers so family members can grab them when the urge hits.
