Yesterday I talked about foods that you “need” to have in your life. This “need” is not a healthy physical requirement but a physical/psychological addiction. If you choose to eat healthy, you may uncover such a “need” food.
If you knew that a certain food could help you stay healthy, would you eat it? If you knew that a food was harmful, would you stop eating it?
Time! Yes, “time”. Do you take the time to plan your menu and shopping list? Do you take the time to cook, really healthy foods? Do you take the time to prepare healthy snacks, so that you are ready when you are hungry? Do you take the time to eat? Do you take the time to exercise?
Isn’t great when all the family is home! You cook all week. When everybody sits down to dinner, the table is full with large bowls and platters of food. Many of us are on a “see food” diet.
Veggies and Fruit are hidden. We keep them in the refrigerator while we keep cookies, cakes, candy on the counter. What do eat? You eat what you see and what is easy.
The kitchen is where it is happening in my house. I know it is often the place where friends gather at parties. The kitchen is the place. Could this play havoc with your diet?
Do you keep your cookies, pretzels, crackers in a see-thru container? We often have a big see-thru pretzel container at work. When I see it, I want a pretzel.
Do you buy at places like Sam’s Club? Do you buy bulk foods and supplies?
Many homes now have good cupboard space and bigger pantries than homes from years ago. Nature abhors a vacuum. If we have the space, we usually fill it. We are people of stuff. Some of our “stuff” is too much food.”
A couple of days ago, I talked about our big plates. Today let’s talk about big glasses. That would be drinking glasses. Let’s also talk about coffee cups too.
Did you know that clutter can effect your weight?
