|Ignore the onions, they were for another project.|
The solution...my own personal crudités...
As I am not a fan of the processing of baby carrots (treated with chlorine), I start with one bunch of organic carrots with the greens still intact (I hear they taste better that way). I cut those into smaller pieces and leave the skins on. Next, I chop two orange bell peppers. I typically cook with red peppers, but found that the orange were sweeter and juicer when consumed raw. Lastly, I quarter baby cucumbers - you may know them as pickling cukes.
|I may be obsessed with nut milk...|
All these veggies are divided up into five sandwich bags, so I can easily stash them in my lunch bag as I'm dashing off to work. I found storing the pre-made bags in a meatloaf dish helps to keep the fridge tidy.
Add a scoop or two of oil-free hummus and you have yourself one tasty mid-afternoon snack!
Keep it healthy!
