Your Kitchen: Where Healthy Begins

Since this is National Nutrition Month, this is a good time to set goals for eating better, and adding a little physical activity into your lifestyle. But, you may be asking “Where do I start?” The best place to start the journey of eating healthy is right there in your kitchen.

Before you begin moving towards the path of healthy eating, you need to know what you’re working with. You would be setting yourself up for failure if you didn’t have, at least some, or all, of the ingredients needed for a healthy kitchen.

It’s nearly impossible to prepare healthy, nutritious meals with unhealthy ingredients — unhealthy + unhealthy = unhealthy; this is a simple concept to understand. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that your kitchen is stocked with essential healthy, ingredients first, before starting your journey.
