How To Keep A Healthy Kitchen

We get asked all the time “What’s the secret to having loads of energy and keeping up a fitness routine?”. Well the answer is more simple than you would think and the best part about it is that not only will it do those for you, it will also help you get in great shape! The trick to all of it is diet, and more to the point, a healthy diet.

In today’s day and age it can be difficult to eat healthy when you’ve got to work all day, keep a social life at night, exercise and still find time to unwind yourself. Well we can’t teach you how to make breakfast, lunch and dinner magically appear without preparing and cooking food but we can help you stock your kitchen so you’ll always have some healthy eats around to help keep your hand out of the crisps bag.

 

There are two types of shopping you’ll have to do to keep a healthy kitchen. The one that’s tough is buying foods that can spoil and that you’ll general buy the day of use or 2-3 days after. The easy shopping is for food that can last on your shelf for months at a time. Keep your cupboard stocked and you can whip up a healthy meal any time.

First keep some beans around the pantry, any type will do really. They are healthy, full of fiber and can be put in anything from the classic chili con carne, to curries, bean burgers or a healthy big brekkie. One the same side keep some rice around, preferably brown rice as it’s healthier and will keep you fuller for longer than white.

 

We’ve got one word for you. CANS. Get those shelf’s full of cans and thanks us later. Canned tomatoes go with pretty much any sauce, canned vegetables can be chucked into anything just like beans, canned tuna or salmon makes a quick and healthy snack and canned fruits can be a sweet treat.

Finally for the pantry keeps some veg that can stay awhile. Onions and potatoes have long shelf lives and are versatile as well as tasty.

 

When it comes to the fridge what you should focus on is vegetables. We usually don’t get nearly as many vegetables as we should in our diets. It can be hard when you can get a chicken parm the size of your face but really, that’s too much meat in one sitting.

Keep your fridge stocked with things that are green. Broccoli, asparagus, green beans, sprouts, capsicums (don’t worry, you can pick red and yellow ones too), zucchini, cucumber, lettuce and bok choy. Greens an easy go to but don’t forget about eggplants, cabbage, cauliflower and tomatoes.

Get as much as you’ll use before it goes off and make sure to have veggies with every meal.

As far as meats go chicken breast is packed with protein and lean in fat and so are most types of fish you can find. It may be tough but try and limit red meat more than anything above. It sure taste great but will hurt your waistline as well as your wallet.

 

This is by no means a comprehensive list but keep it all in mind the next time you stop in to do your regular grocery shopping. You’ll quickly find that a healthy diet will do amazing things not only for your figure but for you energy, mood and bank account!
