When it’s time to snack, what do you reach for?

Believe me, I like junk food just like anyone else.  But I know it makes my body feel lousy, so here’s what I bought at the supermarket.  When you find fruits on sale, buy a lot.  Get everything washed so when you feel the need to snack, something is already ready for you to grab.  You will eat what is convenient.  Make fruit convenient.

Also, you can “guilt” yourself into eating the fruit.  “If I don’t eat it today, it will go bad and I don’t want to waste the money.”  Unlike potato chips, fruit must be consumed right away, so choose it instead of something fattening and unhealthy.

Here’s to more fruit this week!
