It's time to start making changes in your life. One step at a time, you'll become healthier and happier. The first step should always happen in the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the home; and everything starts from the heart.



Food is a huge part of diet and is essential to start a healthier life. I'm willing to bet your kitchen has some unhealthy things in its cupboards. Don't worry, everyone has unhealthy stuff in their kitchen. But it all depends on how much unhealthy stuff you have.

However, it's never too late to change! Follow our tips below to incorporating more healthy foods into your lifestyle.

Get Convenient Appliances

The first step to getting healthier is to make it as easy for yourself as possible. The easier it is for you to make a healthy choice, the more likely you are to make it. This can mean avoiding tempting junk food in the grocery store to getting fun new appliances that you'll want to use.

If you've never had a blender before, getting a high-tech blender will make your life a whole lot easier. You'll be able to create a delicious and healthy smoothie with the press of a button.

When buying appliances, only buy ones that you know you'll use. It doesn't make sense to buy a vegetable juicer if you're never actually going drink vegetable juice.

Keep Yummy Recipes on Your Fridge

Eating healthily will never work out if you force yourself to eat foods you hate. Keeping a list of yummy health-foods and recipes on your fridge will help motivate you. You'll be able to pull a recipe off the list and just get started.

The recipes can be for anything from a colorful salad to a baked potato. You can even add to recipes with specific ingredients that you use a lot. So maybe you find a recipe for a super green powder smoothie that calls for a specific powder. All this will help you plan shopping trips better and avoid the cookie aisle.

Start a Windowsill Herb Garden

An herb garden is a great way to make your kitchen healthier. Herbs can add flavor to even the blandest foods!

For your garden, start with herbs that you use often or that you are most interested in trying. Good examples include Basil, Thyme, and Oregano. It depends on the type of food that you cook as well.

After a period of experimentation, you should be able to find the herbs that work best for you. You should also figure out how many herbs you can handle growing without being overwhelmed. If there's too many, they will all end up dying and you'll be left with no herbs to use in the end!

No Distractions

The most important part of a healthy kitchen is not having distractions (at least to start). For the first couple of months, you should ban sugary and processed foods from your kitchen. This way you'll get into the habit of cooking and eating healthy.

After a few months, once you feel ready, you can slowly bring back snacks and junk food. But don't go overboard. If you don't want to bring back junk food, you don't have to. Whatever suits your lifestyle so long as you focus on putting healthy foods first.

Healthy kitchen, healthy life. Starting with the kitchen is a great way to make your lifestyle better. The kitchen is the place where you eat your meals, cook, and spend a lot of time. If the food that you buy is good for you, you'll be healthier already. That means that you can buy snacks that are healthy, like baked chickpeas or baby carrots.
