Boost Your Nutrition Plan: Kitchen Clean Out

Following the Farrell’s nutrition plan is essential to seeing results. No matter how hard you workout during kickboxing classes or what color band you use on strength training days, what you put into your body is more important.

Follow these tips to get your kitchen in shape to see big success:

  • Remove any clutter. Whether it’s food clutter or a stack of mail, research has shown that the less clutter in our environments, the better choices we make. It also helps with the age-old saying “out of sight, out of mind,” that way you don’t grab something to eat just because you’re bored and “see” it on the counter.
  • No more soda or juice. The family members may not agree, but you’re also doing them a huge favor by removing all soda and juice, which can pack a TON of sugar and artificial chemicals. Stick to the H2O and flavor it if you need a little something more.
  • Goodbye junk and processed food. Get out the garbage bags (or if it’s safe to donate, get a box) and get rid of the junk and processed foods. We’re talking chips, cookies, frozen dinners - anything with ingredients you can’t pronounce or that have labels with too many ingredients listed for a simple meal. Yes, there are some “processed foods” such as pre-chopped vegetables, but you’ll know the difference by reading the labels.
  • Check every location! When cleaning out the kitchen, remember ALL the locations that you may keep food...yes, even the hiding spots to keep the kids out of the candy. Check your fridge, pantry, cupboards and even your office if you keep snacks and meals there. If it’s there, you’ll eat it eventually, so just get rid of it!
  • Read carefully. Hopefully you are all pros at reading nutrition labels by now because of the program, but we still urge you to be careful with some foods that label themselves as “healthy”. Make sure to double check all labels and look at the amount of sugar and fat. For instance, sweetened yogurts, breakfast cereals and peanut butter can all be an unhealthy choice based on the kind you have.
  • Don’t forget the condiments. When we typically clean out our panty or fridge we tend to forget about the smaller items, like condiments, spreads, salad dressings and other garnishments for meals.
What next? After you’ve done your kitchen clean out, it is time to restock with healthy options. Make sure to keep it simple. Don’t think you need to buy every kind of fruit or vegetable. Only get the items you like and know you will eat. Pick four fruits and vegetables you like and stock up on those. Purchase lean meats and whole grains. Keep snacks simple and something you can prep for the week so they are easy to grab and go.
