Is your fridge making you fat? In the following tips, Dietician Dawn Jackson Blatner says there are easy changes you can make to your fridge to help reduce your calories and eat healthier...
1. Do Not Hide Healthy Food
Often people use the crispers at the bottom of a refrigerator to store all the healthy stuff -- fresh vegetables, gorgeous fruits, lean proteins, etc. Instead, move what's healthy to eye level. Dawn says the crisper is what she calls the "RIP Drawer" -- where food goes to die. Cut up veggies and fruit, put them in clear bags and place at eye level. This is using the power of proximity -- if you see it, you will eat it.
2. Hide Your Temptation
Get your refrigerator working for you -- move your temptations, like alcohol and sweets, out of sight. Move condiments, beer and sweets to the crisper, where you'll forget they're there.
3. Stock Fridge with Grab-n-Go Items
Everyone's busy, and often grabbing a bag of potato chips is a lot easier than making something healthy. But there are easy things you can do to make healthy more convenient. Stock your fridge with hardboiled eggs, grilled chicken, roasted veggies and pre-cut fruits.
