A New Year with a New Kitchen
January 9, 2017
If the end of 2016 has you feeling down, a new diet and a new kitchen might be just what you need to make 2017 your year. Kick off your new year with some kitchen inspiration to help you make healthier meals at home.
The best way to remove those bad food habits is to do a clean sweep of your pantry. That secret snack drawer filled with leftover holiday candy needs to go. Once you’ve cleared out all the bad stuff you can start making a list of the good stuff that will replace it. If you don’t already have a system in place, now’s a good time to assess your pantry organization, and determine if you need to add new shelves, bins, or cabinets.
Don’t think the contents of your fridge are off the hook. Think of this sweep as the perfect excuse to finally empty out all those leftover takeout containers. Now’s a good time to make sure your fridge is still in fighting shape. Are drawers and shelves still functional? Do you have enough of them? Is it keeping your food chilled? Do you have enough room? If the answer to any of these questions is no, add new fridge to your list of 2017 upgrades.
Now that you’ve purged all the “bad” from your kitchen, it’s time to bring in the “good.” New appliances can help to motivate you to cook more, especially if you’re in the habit of eating out. New storage can help to keep you focused on eating healthier, instead of trying to keep everything organized. New tools like juicers or slow cookers can open up a whole new world of quick and easy meal options.
Kick off 2017 with a new kitchen and a new you. Schedule your overview now!
