One way to ensure you get your five to seven servings of fruits and vegetables every day is to pack precut veggies as a healthy snack or accompaniment to your lunches at work. To save yourself some trouble, wash and chop a large quantity of vegetables on Sunday night, then store them in the fridge to dole out each day.
Though some vegetables, like cucumber, may not keep for a whole week, many other chopped vegetables will stay fresh for days. I like to mix carrot sticks with celery spears and sliced red bell pepper. You can also wash a few sugar snap peas and cherry tomatoes on Sunday night and store those too; they don't even need chopping! Just 15 or 20 minutes of work, and you've got portable salads for the week.
