With summer right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about eating healthy and getting in shape. One way to get on the right track is by organizing your kitchen, which will help you to save time, money and eat wisely. When you stock up on healthy foods and they are easy to find, and you are more likely to eat and prepare healthy meals. Here are some easy ways to get rid of foods that are bound to sabotage your diet from blackdoctor.org:
Fish, Meat and Poultry
Trash: Bacon, pulled pork, any cuts of beef that have a lot of fatty marbling, fried chicken and fried fish.
Stash: Skinless chicken breast, lean ground turkey, turkey hotdogs, fish or shellfish. Poultry and fish are the leanest animal proteins you can eat. If you cannot imagine your life without steak, choose lean cuts of grass-fed meat.
Trash: Sauces, gravies, spreads or dressing containing mayonnaise, sour cream, cheese sauce, cream and any condiment with more than 4 grams of sugar per serving. Also avoid condiments where high fructose corn syrup is listed within the first five ingredients. High fructose corn syrup triggers your body to store more fat.
Stash: Fresh garlic, salt, pepper, low-sodium soy sauce, wine vinegar, virgin olive oil, apple butter and balsamic vinegar. You don’t need to kick ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce and salad dressing to the curb. Look for versions of these common condiments in the organic section for products that don’t contain high fructose corn syrup.
