Must-Read: Clear Your Fridge of These Bad Foods
Food is unique. It’s one of the only things that we literally need to survive, but also we need to watch out because SO much of it is bad for us that we need to be able to separate the good from the bad. If you eat healthy and good, you’re going to enjoy a fruitful and long life. If you eat terribly and full of gross sugars and fat, well, you’re going to die a whole lot earlier, and during that life span you’re going to have a whole lot of health problems. The key, then, is knowing what foods you want in your fridge, and what foods you want to throw out as quickly as possible.
And so today we’re heading on over to Men’s Fitness where they have a list of what 12 foods that you have to get out of your fridge post haste. As in, you better dump these out or else you’re going to be having to start looking like a dump truck. Among the pieces of foods that you’re going to have to get rid of:
Deli slices may seem healthy enough, but they’re usually packed with added salt and nitrates, which have been associated with a higher incidence of cancer, says Kate Geagan, R.D.N. Stock this instead: Fresh chicken breasts and turkey meat Not only is fresh poultry lower in calories, salt, and saturated fat than lunch meat, it’s also less expensive: “Buy an all-natural rotisserie chicken, or chicken breasts, and roast or poach them all at once, then keep them on hand for the week,” Geagan suggests. You’ll get leaner, and going natural will help you reach long-term health goals, too. Your cardiovascular system will stay resilient (read: less prone to heart disease), and by avoiding nitrates, you’ll reduce your risk of colon cancer.
