What you have in your kitchen’s pantry can weigh heavily on the success of your fitness goals. I would recommend that you plan a day to take charge, clean it out and make it healthy. You can even make it a family activity. You want to stock your pantry with dried herbs, spices, pastas, grains, canned good, and even fresh ingredients like garlic, onions, shallots, and any root vegetables that you don’t have to refrigerate.
This will make cooking healthy meals that are flavorful and less caloric easier than ever. One important key to having the best healthy pantry is to make sure that it is a cool, dry, and dark place that is far enough from the stove so that the heat won’t dry out some of your ingredients and make them lose flavor.
KEEP YOUR PANTRY ORGANIZED
- Every week, review your meal plan for that week. Double check to make sure you have everything you need for that week
- Rotate items as you use them. Keep the oldest things in the front so that you can use them sooner than later and they won’t go bad.
- Keep a list of things you used up so you can replace them.
