Part of eating healthy is putting yourself in a place that allows you to make the best decisions easiest. Browse our other articles for tips on portion control to learn to live in a tempting household!

Remove the Excess

High fat and high sugar foods are problem areas that you can do without! Donate anything you can to your local food bank and save the healthy treats and or pocket the cash for social outings and other events.

Chop and Bag Snacks

Resealable baggies are great for chopped veggies and other snacks. Take them on the go and make a habit of portioning each bag out! It's easy to make snacks a part of your routine that will provide energy and a bit of joy in your day!

Stock the Fridge with Success

A trip to a local farmer's market or any produce section can get you vegetable-minded! Keep that positivity going when you get home by pre-chopping your produce and placing them in clear containers for use later so you don't have to groan over the effort of cooking yourself up a meal.

Pre-Clean and Cut Fruit

A great breakfast idea and something for anybody in the family to snack on, fruit provides energy, satisfies sweet cravings and can be a real healthy boost to somebody's day!

The Power of Protein

If you find yourself way too busy to heat up a pan some days, precook your chicken breast and cube it! Store it in your fridge and add it in to salads and other dishes for a full dish!

Chop and Bag Snacks

Resealable baggies or small clear plastic containers are great for chopped veggies and other snacks. Take them on the go and make a habit of healthy portion control easy! It's easy to make healthy snacks a part of your routine that will provide energy and eliminate the frustration of not knowing what to snack on during the day.

Ditch the Supersize

Some swapped out plates can seriously make a difference when you're looking at your latest creation or favourite meal! Consider reducing your plate to a more lunch-friendly size to help out with portion control.

Try Something New Every Day

The frying pan is far from the only tool you have in your kitchen to prepare hot foods! Try using leaner options to cook like grilling on the barbecue, broiling, steaming, or using indoor grills that allow any excess fat to drip away from foods.

By being mindful of the method you use to cook and trying new healthy recipes regularly is a great way to stay motivated to live healthier lifestyles for you and your family!

It's important to give yourself time to eat healthy, but that doesn't mean it should take long! Save yourself the effort with the tips provided and see your cooking habits change for the better. You have the power to make your skinny kitchen a positive and delicious environment!

Remember that what we stock in our kitchens determines our food choices! Avoid shopping when you're hungry and be sure to take the time to do weekly meal planning and follow your grocery list to stay on track with healthy choices!
