You want a quick fix, right? Truth be told we all do. We know what we should be eating - more fruits and vegetables and whole foods, more food made it home, less take out, etc. - to maximize our health. But we also know, all too often, life gets in the way. We don't make it to the grocery store or traffic keeps us from getting home in time to pre-heat the oven. Next thing we know we're turning to take out.
To help you put an end to the vicious cycle we wanted to share some tips on how making a few small changes in the kitchen can set you up for healthful eating success in 2018. You can read the whole article from Real Simple here - 9 tricks to changing up your kitchen for healthier eating
- or you can read the 3 simplified changes below...
- Clean off the counters - get rid of old newspapers, mail, appliances you don't use daily or don't support healthy eating (toaster vs blender); go ahead and leave a fruit bowl though!
- Downsize your dinnerware - eat dinner off your salad plates, pour yourself a drink in a tall skinny glass and leave the large serving bowls for special occasions
- Portion and snack control - make a big pot of something but freeze half of it right away, stash warehouse food purchases and snack foods in locations other than the kitchen so they're not easily accessible
