I use to do this all the time but for some reason, probably work, I stopped. Well! I started back today. Since I gained two pounds, whether fat or muscle, I have to get back to a healthy lifestyle of eating if I am ever going to reach my goal of losing 20 more pounds this year. I sliced carrots two ways, circles and stalks, put those in a bowl with a lid. I washed and cleaned a stalk of celery but only cut it in half and put it into a ziploc bag. I chopped a couple bell peppers that I got from the garden, put those in a bowl with a lid. I sliced a can of black olives.,put those in a bowl with a lid. I diced up several cucumbers I got out of the garden, put those in a bowl with a lid. I chopped a couple of red tomatoes, I got from the garden, put those in a bowl with a lid. I also chopped a white onion and put it in its bowl with a lid, since an onion stinks up a plastic bowl it has its own! Now if I want a salad with lettuce I will wash and chop it as I go since lettuce rots fast after its been washed. But I can make many raw veggie dishes with just those veggies and different homemade sauces, maybe a little quinoa added , yum! Do you pre chop and clean veggies for future meals?

Nope,I do it as I need it I prefer keeping veggies uncut until I need them. I keep head lettuce in a Tupperware lettuce keeper that I've had since I was a dealer and the lettuce does not 'rot'. As far an onions, ugh....not in y fridge!

I don't. I usually make the salad all together in one bowl. but you have given me an idea.I hadn't even thought about chopping up my salad ingredients separately. I'll try it your way. I make a lot of raw salads, my better is trying to lose a few pounds due to his diabetes. .

Although people prefer to do it on the spot , if I don`t do it ahead of time and I come home from pushing mowing or painting at a rental house, I wont stand and cut veggies I will grab a bag of chips because I am hungry and tired.
