Before committing to any new diet it is key that you remove any source of temptation that may well lead you astray.

For healthier sugars, use Stevia, maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar, birch xylitol and monk fruit.

5. Meal prep

6. Batch cook
Cooking up large batches of healthy fridge/freezer friendly meals is a great way to manage your workload and juggle feeding a family throughout a busy week. Having a nourishing home cooked meal to hand saves time and stress at the end of a long day. Prepare quinoa, rice, and roasted vegetables in bulk and dice all vegetables in advance to have them ready to cook. Cook chicken and fish in bulk to have ready to reheat for week.
7. Hydration Station
Make your kitchen a place to enjoy hydrating and replenishing your body with much needed fluids and electrolytes. Have fun with it by experimenting with different flavored waters infused with nutritious fruits and vegetables.

8. Treat yourself
Invest in kitchen gadgets that make life easier, cleaner and healthier. Swap to non-toxic cookware and BPA free containers. Buy mason jars in a range of sizes for storing portable snacks, granola mix and bars, trail mixes, etc. Purchase a spiralizer and get creative with veggie pasta. And of course, no healthy kitchen is without a good quality blender or food processor for those all-important detox smoothies and soups.
9. Have fun
If your kitchen is a place of dread, stressful cooking, catering for multiple dietary needs and a mountain of dirty dishes, it can be hard to find your motivation. Find ways to involve kids, grandparents or siblings in the food prepping process. Make recipes fun with your own little additions and experiments, play with flavors and combinations, make treats and laugh.
Make the kitchen a place you want to be.
