15. Spring Cleaning

Simply Living Healthy – 40 tips in 40 days

IMG_2131

Today’s tip sounds simple.  Spring cleaning: get rid of junk.  All those sweets, hidden halloween candy (okay does anyone even have any left?), chocolate stash, chip bags.  Get rid of them!

 Have a sweet-release party and invite your friends to eat everything up and make your pantry healthy again.  The fact is, if it’s not in the house and accessible you won’t eat it.  You won’t have a niggly voice in your head tempting you saying “just one chip”.  You will have newfound willpower! (Likely because you won’t have the choice of bad food!)

Once your stash is cleaned out, don’t buy it or bring it into the house.  If you are craaaaaving something, then go out for it.  Only buy a small portion that you can consume on the spot.

Fill your home with fruits and veggies and healthy whole food options.  By replacing everything with healthy options you are also more likely to only eat when you are hungry…i.e. when did you last overeat on apples?

You’ll have no choice but to eat healthy (at home anyway).  And sometimes that’s half the battle.
