Quick and Healthy Tip For Your Kitch:

February 1, 2011

If you’re anything like me you buy healthy foods with the best of intentions, but sometimes they get lost in the “twilight zone” of your fridge. Here is a quick and easy tip to get you on the road to eating healthier and cooking more often in 2011: Pick a simple bowl, or something that can store food, and put it out on your counter. Keep healthy foods in it: tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, fresh herbs, etc. and make sure you take all food out of any plastic bags/packaging. Fresh fruits and veggies may keep a little less longer than they would if in your fridge, but by keeping certain foods this way, you are constantly seeing them – so you’re reminded on a daily basis to look up a recipe, not waste your money, and eat better. You’ll be way more likely to make a fast snack or whip up something quick with enticing, fresh ingredients. I did this by accident: I had nowhere to keep this serving piece, and kept it on my counter temporarily until I could decide where to put it – turns out it made the decision for me ;) Sounds very simple and small, I know, but sometimes its the little things that make all the difference…and it sure beats finding your healthy foods three weeks later, tucked behind milk cartons and take-out containers, sporting green fuzzy mohawks.

Any favorite bowl or dish will do, but if you like this piece from Crate & Barrel, you can find it here: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/dining-and-entertaining/specialty-serveware/cambridge-2-tier-server-with-plates/s447625
