Today I want to give you a few tips about how to set yourself up for success and make it easy and simple to make healthy choices.
Watch here or read below.
If making healthy choices is
• Too hard
• Too complicated
• Too much work
• Too time consuming
You are not going to do it or you are much less likely to do it.
The secret to setting yourself up to being successful is to make healthy choices easy, simple and quick.
Tip # 1 – Arrange your refrigerator to make healthy food choices.
One of the things I like to do is to make sure that my vegetables are front and center. I don’t put them in the bottom crisper where I don’t see them and then they go bad and then I have to throw them out at the end of the week. I put them in clear glass containers, washed, sliced and ready to eat, on the top shelves and in the front. That’s the first thing that I see when I open my fridge and that’s what I reach for.
By taking the time to do some prep on the weekend, I have vegetables all week that are ready for making:
because everything is prepped and ready.
Tip # 2 – What’s on your dining table?
I used to have a bowl on my dining table that was filled with chocolates. My sister lives in Switzerland and she used to send me huge bags of miniature Swiss chocolates, so amazingly delicious. I used to put them in a bowl on the dining table and guess what happened? Every time I passed by the dining table I would take a chocolate and another and another and would finish them in no time. Right now I have A bowl of fruit on my dining table. Beautiful fresh fruits that are washed and ready to eat.
If you see it you will eat it!
Choose the foods that are healthiest for you and make them more visible.
Tip # 3 – Kitchen vision boards.
Visuals play a very big role in your success.
I like to put images and pictures on my refrigerator, cabinets and kitchen walls that inspire me to live a healthy life. That can be pictures of women doing yoga, pictures of women walking or a picture of a delicious healthy meal, it’s like creating a vision board for your kitchen. Use your refrigerator to make your own vision board of a healthy life-style and every time you see it it will inspire you to make healthy choices.

These are great. I’ll be doing a bit more re-arranging in the fridge this week. Thanks.
So glad it was helpful.
I love #3, the visual tip! I do put recipes on my fridge that I want to try, but I think I am going to think about, seek and find an inspirational image. I do keep a bowl of fruit and healthy grab-and-go snacks in a bowl on my table! And, my refrigerator is healthy :).
Question for you: Do you have any thoughts on healthier, if not healthy, options for campfire treats?
So glad you were inspired by tip #3. I love roasting potatoes in the ambers until they get black and crusty on the outside, but soft on the inside, they have a smoky flavor that I absolutely love. And instead of putting scores on a stick you can try cut veggies and fruit, zucchini and pineapple are a great combo.
I LOVE this post, Rachel! Wonderful, practical and easy-to-implement tips!
P.S. If those chocolates were on my table, they would have been gone in an afternoon.
Thanks for all you do!
I love your energy, ideas, and support! Thanks for all you share! xo
Arranging food in the frig grabbed my attention. Mine is a mess as some summer company left much of their old food here….FOOD CLUTTER! I also have used feng shui to organize the frig and would welcome expanding this great idea with you, Rachel. To be continued…
Love this – fresh ideas with fresh yummy foods! Thank you!
So funny that I’m reading this today because I had already decided yesterday that I was going to clean out the fridge and reorganize. Now I know EXACTLY what to put on the top shelf! Recently I bought a spiralizer and I love having zucchini and squash already prepped and ready for salads and sauteeing! Thanks for another great post!
Love these ideas! I’ve just moved and have a very small space for fruits and veggies, so the thought of placing these front and center makes wonderful sense. Xoxo
I love the idea of the kitchen vision board! My frig already looks like the inside of the cooler section at the store, so why not the outside? Awesome!
I love these ideas Rachel as they set up the intention for healthy choices and are empowering! I am going to create a vision board for my vibrant health for my refrigerator! Thank you so much!
I love these ideas Rachel! Especially the one about getting your Veggies prepped and ready to go. Often by the time I am ready to eat, I am so hungry that prepping the veggies seems to big a task and a bowl of cereal so much easier. I will definitely try this!
