Do you want to eat healthier? The key can be behind the door of your fridge. When you’re hungry, you grab what you see–the quicker the better. Why not plan for those moments and fill your refrigerator with healthy foods that will satisfy your cravings. Here are some tips for bringing the Chaos To Order in your refrigerator:
Whittle it down. 25% of the food we purchase, we don’t even eat! Use up what you have before adding more.
Have a “Mustgo” Night. Regularly make a plan to prepare leftovers in the fridge &/or freezer for a meal when everything “must go”.
Plan Ahead. It makes so much sense in the kitchen to plan meals ahead. So often we wonder what we can make for dinner at 4:30. Take the time once a week to plan meals. It will save time, energy and money, not to mention you can opt for healthier choices when planning–no impulse eating.
Don’t over-purchase. That indulgent trip to Costco can be more wasteful than you think. If you’re buying in bulk and not eating it, you’re really not getting a deal.
Organize! When you come home from the grocery store, before putting things away, wipe down the fridge and weed it out. Doing this regularly will help you to know what’s in there, what you need, and what you can use for planning meals.
