Once you have your kitchen organized, how are you going to maintain it?
Here are a few tips to help you maintain your masterpiece:
Do dishes immediately after meals. (Your future self will thank you in the morning!)
Purge old and expired food regularly. Consider reviewing everything in your pantry, food storage cabinets, fridge and freezer quarterly.
Keep healthy food stocked and at eye level.
Place an inviting basket of fruit on the counter. Its visibility may tempt you to eat it, rather than sweets and treats.
Pre-washed, cut & proportioned vegetables and fruits in plastic baggies in the fridge make grabbing on-the-go lunches a breeze.
Remove healthy pre-packaged snacks from their boxes and put them in small baskets or bins in the pantry for ease of access.
Create a deli box in your fridge, by adding everything you need to make a sandwich.
When your kitchen is clean and organized you are more likely to choose to eat healthy. Additionally, eating healthy away from home takes planning and organizing. Stock healthy options like nuts, energy bars, and fruit in your car, purse, and/or office so you have something to eat on the go.
