Keep sliced vegetables on hand

One of the easiest ways to consume more veggies is to eat them raw as snacks. The key to making it simple is to pre-slice a bunch of different vegetables, such as bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, and any other favorites, for the week at one time.

Then you can grab some of the veggies and your favorite dip — such as hummus — while sitting at your desk or watching a movie for an instant healthy snack. In addition, you can throw whatever cut veggies you don’t use as snacks into a soup, pasta dish, or salad or some scrambled eggs.
