Snack Tubs

A quick post to share something that really helps me (and DH) stay on plan - snack tubs. I learned this trick from the McDougall Discussion Board. Once or twice a week, I fill 3-cup Gladware containers with a variety of fruits and veggies, all cut up and ready to eat. The usuals are grapes, baby carrots, and grape tomatoes, but I sometimes include strawberries, celery, or any fruit or veggie that's not too messy.

Now, when I get hungry, I just pop one open and munch. The key is that it's easier to eat this than to get a bad, but oh-so-tempting snack.

Keda, thanks for stopping by. I wish I could take credit for this idea, but it came from TominTN on the McDougall boards a while back. BTW, his wife is a Star McDougaller: http://drmcdougall.com/stars/karen_barron.html. Hope it helps!

I did this this past week and am LOVING it. So simple, but so practical - I never would've thought of it.
