This Kitchen Clean Out Guide is straight out of my upcoming ebook on how to eat like your ancestors for clear, glowing skin, beautiful hair and radiant health. (Make sure you’re signed up for my newsletter for the details!) Do you think your ancestors had vegetable oils in their kitchen? What about MSG? Or artificial sweeteners? Hell no! When I begin work with a new client, the first thing I do is recommend a kitchen clean out. If something unhealthy isn’t in your fridge or pantry, you’re much less likely to eat it. Plus, replacing old staples like ketchup with high fructose corn syrup or soy sauce with wheat for better options actually makes a huge difference in overall health. Sometimes, the smallest changes produce the biggest results. We often don’t think that the small things made a difference, but trust me, they do. Especially if your kitchen has GMOs, soy, MSG, wheat, vegetable oils or any other toxic foods. The act of replacing these things with high quality products not only makes a difference in your health (your likihood of cancer, obesity and diabetes greatly decreases when you get the junk out of your kitchen) but it will also manifest physically and emotionally. Your skin will be clearer, your mood will be better and you will likely lose weight (if you need to).
Kitchen Clean Out
Step 1: Get rid of any products in your fridge or pantry that contain vegetable oils (corn, soy, canola, safflower, cottonseed, sunflower seed, etc).
Step 2: Get rid of any products in your fridge or pantry that contain wheat, wheat gluten, or anything derived from wheat.
Step 3: Get rid of any products in your fridge or pantry that contain sugar, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, rice syrup, aspartame, sucralose, splenda, or any other unnatural sweeteners.
Step 4: Get rid of any products in your fridge or pantry that contain processed foods. Granola bars, protein bars, frozen meals, crackers, “diet” foods or snacks, cookies, etc. If you know it’s not healthy and you shouldn’t be eating it, toss it.
Step 5: Get rid of any GMOs; the top 10 GMOs are soy, aspartame, inorganic meat and dairy, zucchini and squash, papaya, cotton, corn, canola, alfalfa and sugar from sugar beets. If any of these are in your fridge or pantry and are inorganic, they are likely genetically modified.
Step 6: Get rid of products with ingredients you don’t recognize or cannot pronounce.
Step 7: Get rid of any products with fake, processed ingredients like monosodium glutamate (MSG), sulfites, sulfates, carrageenan, food dyes (like red #40), butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), splenda, low-fat ingredients, fat-free ingredients, guar gum, modified food starch, “natural and artificial flavors”, soy lecithin, malt extract or yeast. Again, if it is unfamiliar, if you can’t pronounce it, if it is over 10 letters long, if a product has more than 5-10 ingredients, if it looks like it may have been developed in a lab, get rid of it!
