Where is Danger Lurking in Your Kitchen?
Stop Trouble Before it Starts
-- By Mike Kramer, Staff Writer

Anytime is a good time to give your kitchen a healthy inspection. Nasty foods and hidden pitfalls are just waiting to tempt you into reverting to bad habits. They may even be disguising themselves in a "healthy" cloak. To have healthy habits and a healthier lifestyle, you first must live in a healthy environment.

Face it: No matter how motivated you are to get healthy, temptation is going to happen. It’s just a matter of time. And when it happens, you’ll need healthy foods and snacks within arm’s reach to come to the rescue. Not every day will be an easy one and the world won’t end if you have an occasional candy bar. But you sure don’t need to make it easy to take a step backward.

There’s no better time to take stock of what’s in your kitchen and be objective about whether it’ll hurt or help you later on. You may have developed an attachment to the cheesecake on the bottom shelf or the movie theater butter popcorn stashed behind the toaster, but this is no time to be sentimental. Your health is at stake!

Start with the fridge and pantry. Focus on replacing sugary and high-calorie foods with whole grains and lower-calorie alternatives.
