Having a well-stocked pantry and fridge is like money in your health’s savings bank. If you have it, you are more likely to eat it. Therefore, the goal is to reduce the number of foods you keep on hand that are not healthy and replace them with healthier substitutes.

Change is a process so pace yourself! Set a goal to avoid stocking items with the following:

  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils
  • Foods with dyes and numbers (i.e. red #40)
  • Flavor enhancers (i.e. MSG)
  • Artificial sweeteners (i.e. aspartame)

Make an “instead of…” list! Here are a few examples:

  • Chips –> popcorn
  • Granola bar –> nuts and dried fruit
  • Cookies –> dark chocolate
