"90% LESS Fat"
"Made with Real Fruit Juice"
It's so easy to buy into boxes and bags of snacks with those temping words written all over them! Trust me, my pantry was always stocked with Baked Lays, Reduced Fat Cheez-Its, and Fat-Free Red Vines Licorice.
But, once I became more knowledgeable about what I was actually feeding my body, I stopped buying/eating those types of snacks. (I do scarf down a few Red Vines on my cheat days though.)
My everyday snacks, now, range from fresh veggies, Greek yogurt, sweet potato fries, hummus, etc.
And, for the past three years, I have stood by my rule that my refrigerator should be stocked far more than my pantry, and my body is so thankful.
A quick peek into my refrigerator (this was taken Monday, as that is when my meals are all prepped and ready to be grabbed for on-the-go convenience!)
You'll see I have my meals packaged and prepped for the week, a few individual Greek yogurts, green chile, cooked butternut squash, tons of eggs, water bottles, fruits, and a lot of vegetables.
I forgot to take a picture of my freezer... but I have a bag of tilapia filets, a lb of lean ground turkey and a few chicken breasts in the freezer, as well.
On the side door to my refrigerator, you'll find iced green tea, sugar-free coffee creamers, soy milk and condiments like mustard, apple cider vinegar and sriracha.
I keep it simple and free of temptation. Because I'm human, just like everyone else...if I have something in my house, I WILL EAT IT.... I repeat, I WILL EAT IT.
And the result of consistently keeping my refrigerator stocked more than my pantry...
...are these little babies.
Yep, I just posted a typical ab shot. But it's only to show and prove a point that I got them from eating clean and eating clean consistently. So, I'm proud! :)
xoxo God Bless & Stay tuned...
