Clean Out Your Pantry – Tips From Dietician Sharon Richter
When it comes to Spring Cleaning, it’s helpful to start in a small area where you can make big progress. Why not combine two goals with one?
Clean out your pantry – and improve your health – by following these Spring Cleaning Tips from registered dietitian Sharon Richter:
Step 1: Empty everything out of your food pantry! It’s okay to start with a mess. You’ll be surprised to find what’s hiding in there!
Step 2: Throw away anything that has expired – anything that has been open for more than a couple weeks – and anything you know you’re not going to use.
Step 3: Organize everything by category! Snacks, meal starters, nuts and dried fruits, oils/dressings, cereal and carbs, are good places to start.
Step 4: Check the labels. Here are a couple ingredients you should avoid: hydrogenated oil, HFCS, MSG.
Step 5: Make sure you have plenty of portion-controlled snacks readily available and at the front of the pantry as you tend to eat more of what is eye-level or easily accessible.
Tip: Stock up on Dark Balance Bars!
