Convenience is easy. Easy is nice, but not always better. It’s time to say goodbye to processed goodies & whip out the knife & cutting board. Spring has sprung and we're cleaning our cupboards! Find out how to align your kitchen with your goals.
It’s easy to eat what’s convenient. It’s why we love fast food so much: it’s on our way home & we don’t have to cook it. Fast food isn’t the best option, so why keep a kitchen full of ‘fast’ foods? Kitchen audits are a great way to make sure you only keep foods that will help hit nutrition goals.
Precision Nutrition has a list of things you can do to help transform your body, but let’s focus on ways to transform your kitchen:
1)If you don’t want to eat don’t keep it around! Not saying Ben & Jerry’s is bad, but not having a carton in your fridge makes you less likely to eat it. 2)Have fresh healthy foods out in plain sight, like fruits in a decorative bowl on the counter.
3)Try a meal plan service, particularly ones marketed to athletes. They’ll offer more protein and fibrous veggies.
4)Log meals. Knowing what you’ll eat each day for a few days removes mindless eating: you’ll know exactly what to eat & when.
5)Keep chopped, ready to eat veggies in the fridge. Prepping make them easier to cook and can be a great snack with hummus.
Get your kitchen aligned with your goals. If you keep minimally-processed foods at home, that’s what you’ll eat!
