Plan Ahead to Eat Healthy

June is 'National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month'!  Celebrate by planning ahead to eat healthy and adding more color into your diet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iweiwEYFk14

A simple way to add more color to your meals is prepping your ingredients ahead of time. Make a plan to wash, prep & store the fruits and vegetables you’ll need for the coming week, so you’re prepared for healthy meals and snacks.

1. Keep sliced vegetables in a container in the fridge for a quick and easy snack (carrots, cucumbers, peppers.)

2. Pack sliced fruits or vegetables when you're on-the-go to help avoid fast food and vending machine temptations. Grapes are a great no-mess option.

3. Before grocery shopping, create a meal plan for the week and make a list of all the items you will need to buy, including quantity.  Include a variety of colored food.
