are what you should buy if you’re looking to increase your intake.
1. They are pre-cut so no prep work required (not that vegetable prep takes a lot of time but it’s one less barrier).
2. Lots of variety.
3. Container is large enough that it can’t hide in your crisper where you may forget about it.
4. Increased cost and shorter shelf life should encourage you to eat them up (nobody likes wasting money or food).
So consider picking one of these up the next time you’re at the grocery store as a quick way to add more veggies to your day. If cost is an issue, consider doing it every other week or once a month.
