We all know we need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but usually we just don’t want to. Well, according to a study in Environment and Behavior, there are two things you can do to increase the chance that you’ll snack on something healthier than a Heath bar.

Researchers Gregory Privitera and Heather Creary found that participants were more likely to eat healthy foods like apples and carrots when 1) they were stored in clear containers and 2) placed in plain view.

I guess we can’t hide behind the out-of-sight, out-of-mind excuse anymore!

What’s this means for you: Simply stock up on transparent bowls and fill them with fruits and vegetables and arrange them either at eye level in the front of the fridge or in the middle of your table so they’re in your line of vision.

That was easy and painless, right?
