Simple kitchen organization ideas that make it easy to grab healthy even when its hectic!
When it comes to establishing healthy habits for your family, you need to think like a marketer! Merchandize your fridge to make it easy to choose healthy foods even when it’s hectic.
Once a week, for 15 minutes, wash and prep veggies for the week ahead. Store your produce in glass containers, so you can easily see what’s inside, then stack your containers on the shelves of your fridge. Use the crisper drawers for cooking essentials, like garlic and onions. You’ll reduce food waste dramatically if you can easily see what’s on hand. And you’ll be more likely to choose the healthy option if it’s ready and accessible.
