How to Guide: Making Over Your Kitchen

The Hungry humans’ Law – if it’s in your pantry, you’ll find a reason to eat it, no matter how many times you promise yourself that you are not going to, that throwing it out would be a waste, that you’re saving it for someone… etc. etc. Time to throw out the rubbish with all those excuses. So what stays and what goes?

You know what junk food is by now – dump the candy, cookies, ice cream, chips, soda, and anything else that comes in a packet and has ingredients on the list that you do not immediately identify as a product of nature (an apple, a piece of meat, almonds).

If I asked you to go to the store and pick up some Preservative 220, Humectant, acesulfame, TBHQ or Monosodium Glutamate could you do it? No! So out they go. So what’s left?

It’s easy to throw out the “pure poison”. Much harder to give up the products that make your life easier – like frozen TV dinners, sugar ridden sauces, and so called ‘health’ products like crackers (MSG), most cereals (fructose), snack bars (fructose), gluten free alternatives (read: empty calories to trick you into thinking it’s healthy), fruit juice (fructose). Here’s the problem – if you convince yourself to keep it, you’re denying the basic knowledge you now possess that it is junk food. How long will it be before you’re back to your old eating habits?

And while reading the nutritional information on a product for fat content, sugars etc. can be effective, it is considerably more so to simply look at the ingredients. If there are more than 6, or includes something that is not a product of nature, don’t buy it!

It’s time for REAL CHANGE. Be brutal and start fresh. A single ingredient should be enough for you to eliminate a food. Imagine how great you will feel once your body is free of this stuff.

Don’t go easy on your cupboard, get rid of ALL the junk, prepare REAL food to replace the convenience of what you’re throwing away and remember, knowledge is power – read the ingredients, find out what you’re putting into your body.
