Guilty of Eating Unhealthy Snacks?

So, let’s admit it guys, though we try to practice healthy snacking we all are guilty of having some unhealthy foods hanging around in our pantry. We do our best to avoid these “bad for us” foods and snacks but then end up grabbing them when we feel stressed, emotional, or just hungry when time only allows for open package and eat!

Sometimes bought on impulse or out of bad habits, we continue to allow these bad snacks to live in our home. The best way to avoid these types of snacks and start snacking in a healthy way?

Get Rid of Unhealthy Snacks

Now I know that goes against our basic instincts to not waste food. Many of us are conditioned to not waste things. This is not a bad thing, except when it causes you to eat or finish something that is not a healthy snack choice. Ultimately, you are not just wasting food, but also harming your body. And we all know how important a healthy diet is for a healthy lifestyle.

If you have unhealthy snacks in your pantry, freezer, etc., that will tempt you, don’t put yourself in that situation anymore! Healthy snacking starts by avoiding the bad stuff. Donate or dispose of unhealthy snack foods. If you consider how inexpensive unhealthy foods are, it helps put into perspective that the bigger waste occurs when we eat that food and compromise our health.

And on the other side of the issue, healthy snacks may cost a bit more but isn’t your future health worth it?

If you like to have non-organic snack foods (such as baking supplies or certain not-so-healthy treats) for company or holidays, find a place to store them that is “out of sight, out of mind.” You could place those things in a container and store it in a cool, dry place that isn’t in your kitchen.

For frozen foods, make a space in the freezer and store it inside another container or bag so you won’t see if every time you open the door.

These simple steps help in allowing you to make healthy snack choices and stay on track!
