How to organise your kitchen to eat healthier?
Eating healthy becomes easier when you have a well-organized kitchen. You can have easy access to healthy food items, maintain good hygiene, and avoid unhealthy cooking habits in a well-organized kitchen.
Need help in organizing your kitchen for healthy eating? Check out the tips below:
1) Dedicate storage cabinets for specific items
Frantically searching for a specific ingredient or cookware in your kitchen can be a sore spot in your culinary experience. To avoid this, dedicate your kitchen cabinets for storing specific items so that you know where to look for when preparing healthy recipes.
Installing a modular layout is a practical way to create effective storage solutions in your kitchen space. At Kutchina, our modular kitchen solutions include ergonomic storage cabinets and accessories such as ladder units and corner carousels. Apart from functionality, Kutchina modular kitchens are aesthetically pleasing as well. Explore our modular kitchen designs here.
2) Discard food packaging
Packaged food items often come in various packet shapes and sizes which can take up more room in the storage cabinets than required. To use your cabinet spaces ergonomically, discard the food packages and instead use similar-sized storage containers.
Choose see-through containers so that you can easily see the particular food item that you are searching for. Using clear containers also helps you know when you are running low and need to stock up.
3) Keep unhealthy snacks out of reach
It’s quite tempting to munch on unhealthy snacks such as crackers and nachos when you keep them within easy reach. To break away from the habit, keep such food items in spaces such as top shelves or deep in the pantry which you cannot easily reach.
If you can’t keep without snacking every now and then, display healthy snacks such as fruits and nuts in a glass bowl. Keep the snacks bowl within easy reach.
4) Use separate knives and cutting boards
Use separate knives and cutting boards to cut vegetables and meats. It’s a good step to label the knives and cutting boards and store them in separate places to maintain good hygiene.
5) Keep a set of measuring spoons and cups
Choosing the right portions is an important part of eating healthy. To stick to the right portion sizes, keep a set of portable measuring spoons and cups.
