It’s easier to make good food choices when you can see what you have and it is simple for you to grab and eat, instead of spending a lot of time preparing your food. That’s why having a healthy refrigerator can help you see the benefits of healthy eating habits. Not sure where to start? Begin with a clean out. Get rid of out-of-date and processed foods and be prepared to get fresh for a healthy diet. The refrigerator is one of the hardest working appliances in your home- and a clean refrigerator promises to keep food fresher.
Clear it out and begin fresh, wipe the inside with 2 tablespoons baking soda and 1 quart hot water. Rinse with a damp cloth, and then dry with a clean towel. Do not use soap or detergent, because they can leave behind a scent the food will absorb.
Now you are ready to start the stock up. Here are few suggestions to get you started.
Luckily, most of these are also part of the Mediterranean Diet – Opa!
