Stock Your Fridge with Carrot and Celery Sticks for Healthy Snacks

Here’s an easy tip for eating healthy: always keep carrot and celery sticks on hand for healthy snacks and recipes.  It takes a little time and effort, but having the carrot and celery sticks washed, peeled, cut and ready-to-eat will encourage healthy snacking.  Having a low-fat dip available doesn’t hurt either.  Remember to put these on a prominent shelf in the fridge so they are easy to access.  To keep them fresh, use a food storage container and place a damp paper towel over them before putting the lid on.  It’s wonderful to have these ready for use in salads, soups and other recipes as well.

[…] This time of year, I make homemade soup on a weekly basis.  There is something so warm and comforting about a bowl of homemade soup, especially if it is loaded with noodles.  I’ve recently discovered how yummy and satisfying egg noodles are when added to my chicken noodle soup.  Just serve a hearty wedge of bread alongside it and you have a light and healthy lunch or supper to warm you when it’s chilly outside .  The leftover noodles not used in the soup are deliciously silky with some butter and parmesan cheese – another comfort food!  This version of my chicken noodle soup really cooks up quickly if the noodles are already cooked and placed in a container in the fridge with a little olive oil to keep them separated.  It also helps if the carrot and celery sticks are already prepared.  See my earlier post on: Storing Celery and Carrot sticks.

    I think I’ll try this option. Another source I read states that the best way to store veggie sticks-such as celery-was to keep them covered in water in a plastic container in the refrigerator, and change the water on a daily basis.
