Are you gonna eat that?!
Sometimes we just eat without thinking. But does that really help us in the long run? Well, it can, but only if we are stocked up appropriately in the pantry and the fridge! There’s a thing called the law of human nutrition that goes like this: “If a food is in your possession or located in your residence, you will eventually eat it.” Even if you don’t plan to eat it, or you don’t WANT to eat it, if it’s there, you WILL eventually eat it. So, because of this very real law of human nutrition, if your goal is to be healthy and lean, you HAVE to stock your home with foods that will help you stay on a healthy eating program and you MUST remove all the foods that aren’t part of that plan. Fill your shelves with a variety of better, healthier choices to make staying on the road to health easier. Say goodbye to highly processed snacks (think chips, fruit and granola bars, crackers, cookies, etc.) and switch them out for raw, unsalted nuts; avocado, whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, high quality lean meats, etc.
It shouldn’t feel like rocket science, but it may take some trial and error before you get the hang of picking the right foods for your meals and snacks. Read labels, choose foods that are the closest to their natural state (not processed) and are free of fillers, pesticides, chemical processing and artificial colors, sweeteners and flavors.
