A couple weeks ago Mr. Eight started eating healthier, and part of that entailed pre-making his lunches and dinners for the week. The fridge is full of little Ziplock containers! It worked really well for him though, having a portioned meal ready to go, and no excuse not to eat it.
I decided this week I would try the same thing with myself and the kids. We went to the commissary on Monday and bought a half cart full of just fruits and veggies. I brought it home and proceeded to chop up and slice everything I could. I separated grapes and carrots into little baggies, as well as steamed and roasted a lot of the veggies I bought.
I made enough egg salad avocado sandwich mix (a recipe I'll be sharing soon) for two days of lunches, and even made a tropical smoothie, enough for 2 or 3 servings. I hard boiled eggs for breakfast, and chopped up celery too!
The next step was to ensure that I knew what was in the fridge and what needed to be eaten. We're really really REALLY bad about buying food and letting it spoil in the fridge. I hate taking out vegetables or meat only to find something underneath it I had forgotten about and had let go bad.
This has really helped me stay organized! If you have the same problems I have then give it a try and let me know!
