Thinking about eating better, but not sure how you'll manage the extra cooking, food prep, and new food rules in your kitchen? Don't let the details stop you before you get started!
I went to culinary school and worked in a world-renowned restaurant in Italy, yet I keep most of my meals super-simple. Doing this means I'll continue to feed myself the best foods possible, even when I'm taking on a reset, detox, or cleanse.
Here are my basic strategies for keeping my kitchen cleanse-ready, streamlined and inviting:
1. Pack your pantry with quick-meal basics.
If your cupboard contains little more than old herbs and spices, flavored vinegars, and random bags of flour, cooking up a fast meal won’t happen. But if you have quinoa, dried apricots, and organic chicken or vegetable broth, you can whip up a simple Moroccan-style tagine.
You can still use some packaged foods like gluten-free pastas, canned beans or canned soups for dinners (look for BPA-free cans), just be sure to check the labels so you’re sure to avoid any hidden names for gluten, soy, corn, dairy, caffeine or sugar.
2. Organize your kitchen.
