How to Spring Clean Your Diet


How to Spring Clean Your Diet
Good4Utah

Out with the old, in with the nutritious. With winter weather behind us, now is the perfect time to do a bit of spring cleaning in your pantry. By purging “junk” food from your pantry, you take away much of the temptation to eat it. If it’s within reach, it’s easy to indulge – and even small nibbles throughout the day can really add up.Food to get rid of: Salty, high calorie snack foods, which are all around bad for your waistline: they’re high in empty calories and bloat causing salt. (i.e. a 150 calorie serving of tortilla chips is only 9 chips!)Swap salty chips for: Raw veggies with hummus or low fat dips, which are satisfyingly crunchy and have a similarly salty taste. Whole grain crackers (i.e. Triscuits) or popcorn with a string cheese Lightly salted nuts Foods high in added sugars.
