28 Mar 31 Days of Healthy Eating: Tip 28 from Natalia Hancock
Happy National Nutrition Month! Today’s healthy eating tip is from another truly outstanding dietitian, Natalia Hancock. I first met Natalia over lunch at the NYC Michelin starred restaurant Rouge Tomate, where she worked as their nutritionist. Natalia is always full of words of wisdom. I hope you enjoy her tip today.
Make Your Home a Safe Zone
Avoid having a pantry and fridge filled with quick and easy to eat snack-type foods such as crackers, cookies, chips, ice cream, candy, etc. Stock your kitchen with healthier options such as, fresh fruits and veggies, nuts and nut butters, dried fruit, pop corn kernels, and plain Greek yogurt for example. My personal rule is that if I want a treat bad enough I have to make it from scratch. We all get the munchies from time to time and it’s hard to be unhealthy when you don’t have the option.
