  • + prep as you put away

    If the good stuff is there and ready when you open your fridge, you’ll eat it.  If not, you’re more likely to reach for processed packaged food. So after shopping at your local farmers’ market or your organic grocer, devote a half hour to washing and prepping – before you even put the stuff away.  Rinse carrots (peel if they’re not organic) and stash in a glass container full of water to keep them snappy. Wash blueberries, drain them very well, and store in a dry colander so they have plenty of air around them. Hard boil a dozen eggs. Wash and spin greens and store in a dry salad spinner or a plastic bag. It really helps your habits when everything is at hand and ready to pop onto a plate (or into your mouth).
