101 DFN… 5 Ways to Stay Sane in the Kitchen

101 Days From Now, I am in the best shape of my life! We are embarking on a 101-day challenge beginning with goal setting and then phased mile markers along the way to create permanent lifestyle changes. If you are just joining us, be sure to check out the first post here. You can find all 101 DFN posts in the “+101 Days From Now” link in the header menu.

Erica is here as our first 101 DFN featured writer to share some great ideas to guide your nutrition goals.

So here we are, charging into Phase II.  Our goals are in mind, our routines are being put into motion, & most of us will be hitting up the grocery store in a health minded fury.  For some the first weeks are the easiest because we start with the best of intentions.  For others it’s the hardest because we just don’t know where to start!

#1.  Clean out & Organize:

Seems daunting, but it’s super easy & worth it!  Take 15 minutes to open your fridge & pantry.  Take a good look & clean out everything outdated or spoiled, consolidate things you have 2 or more of, & take out anything that will tempt you from keeping your goals.  i.e.: The stockpile of ice cream, soda pop, Oreos, or Doritos hiding out.  Then organize what is left so that you can glance into the fridge/pantry & know exactly what  you have.  It will make it so much easier when you are putting together your grocery list or just looking for a quick snack!!jaw_20130918-IMG_5195 Continue reading 101 DFN… 5 Ways to Stay Sane in the Kitchen
