Just because you CAN eat tons of fruits and veggies, doesn’t mean you should.
I may not be popular for pointing this out – however, fruits have CALORIES too!
I meal prepped yesterday and I decided it was HIGH time I start measuring my fruit. YES, MEASURING fruit.
I added 1/2 c of strawberries and 1/2 of a large apple. This is the equivalent of about a serving of fruit. Plenty for my breakfast.
Had I not measured, I would have easily added another 100-150 calores worth based on the size of the container.
Fruit isn’t free. There are still calories associated with them.
Binging can still happen on free foods. And I’d rather choose strawberries or an apple over chips any day, however, making mindful choices and being conscious of how much I am eating is a whole other behavior that I work on.
How do you handle your fruits? Do you weigh or measure?
Ps-these meal prep containers ROCK.
