What You Need to Health-ify Your Pantry
When starting out on your health journey, it can feel like everything is weighted against you, especially your pantry. It’s possibly stocked with many things you’ve been advised to avoid, and not much left of what you need to be consuming. The best way to do this I’ve found, is to slowly stock up on the items to keep or add each time you visit the supermarket, and then slowly bin or donate the Items to remove once your pantry becomes more stocked. This doesn’t have to be a huge effort in one day, and can slowly happen over time.
