Today was co-op day. That's the day I get a basket of fresh fruits and veggies to fill my fridge, fruit bowls, and window sill. Today I was unloading my produce and realized that I had a couple of large carrots and a half-dozen oranges that really needed to be eaten soon.
So I cut up carrots and 4 of the oranges and left them on the counter to see what would happen.
An hour later, we had this. One cup of carrots emptied, and most of the oranges. I cut up the remaining two older oranges. I think all that is left is a few carrot sticks in a cup.
The lesson here? If you cut it up, they are more likely to eat it.
For that matter, so are you.
It's a whole lot easier to turn this:
Than it is to make THIS look like something you want to eat.
