Step 1. If you have chips and cookies in your house, you can hardly resist them when you are hungry. And the worst part is that many people consume these snacks at night. When you go to the store, try to buy only the things that you need. Buy more vegetables and fruit and no sugary snacks.
Step 2. Be sure you have all the ingredients you need before you start cooking. If you miss one ingredient, you may be tempted to order takeout. Make a complete shopping list when you go to the store and don’t forget about the school lunch items.
Step 3. You can start an herb garden and bring a little of the outside in the house. This way you will have fresh live foods and also save some money. It is more convenient to have your own herbs than buying them.
Step 4. Buy yourself pots, pans and the utensils you need to make cooking a fun activity. Don’t use supersized plates. A standard plate will help you with portion control. You don’t need electronics in the kitchen, such as television, tablet, phone or laptop. Keep the ones you use for cooking, like blenders and mixers.
Good luck with your new healthy lifestyle!
