Detox Kitchen Raid And Food Prep Tips

Take time to clean out your kitchen & get clean eating ingredients ready

Success in anything is based on preparation and patience. It’s no different when you’re implementing new habits in nutrition and fitness. As I was reminded by a mentor early on in my career as a nutritionist and personal trainer, “set yourself up for success to avoid failure”. In the next 30-days you’ll be asked to “detox”,  giving up sugar, caffeine, alcohol, dairy, and wheat. This is just a suggestion, but if you take on the challenge you’ll feel amazing.

To ramp up for the KYG 30-Day Challenge, this is the first step. Follow the suggestions below for your very own “Kitchen Raid” and “Food Prep Day”:

  1. Open your cupboards and party. Remove processed foods with partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, and low fiber (less than 3 grams per serving) like crackers, cookies, cereals, candies, and snacks. Take the time to read. Then throw them in the trash. These ingredients aren’t doing you any favors.
  2. Open your refrigerator and freezer. Remove foods that are processed and high in fats, such as ice cream, frozen french fries, yogurt with added sugars, and cold cuts. Toss out alcohol and calorie laden drinks. It’s time to eat clean.
  3. Visit KYG winter shopping list and recipes. Fill your kitchen with foods that don’t come in boxes. Buy fresh fruits and vegetables, raw nuts, high fiber grains, and low-mercury fish.
  4. Load up on lemon to flavor the 60+ ounces of filtered water you need daily. Shoot for 1/2 lemon in each glass of water for 7 days straight.
  5. Place any foods you don’t want to dispose in the freezer. This way you can’t grab for it when your willpower is running low.
  6. Prep time. Chop up veggies and fruits for snacks and recipes. Marinate meats for quick preparation. Spend a day cooking 3 meals. Divide up into serving sizes and place in containers. Freeze half and place the rest in the fridge for a quick heat up during the week.

That’s all it take…a designated day to purge and prepare, and you’ll be on your way to a successful 30-Day Challenge. Good luck!
