You have seen it on some of the reality shows on television. The dietitian or “food expert” comes into a home and starts throwing out the unhealthy foods in the kitchen. A Healthy Kitchen Check Up with a Registered Dietitian is not quite as dramatic, but just as helpful if not more so. Having a dietitian come into your home to provide such a service can make you feel like you have your own personal nutritionist, just like a celebrity.
During a healthy kitchen check up, the Registered Dietitian will come to your home, and evaluate the foods on hand in your cupboards, refrigerator, and freezer and on your countertop. Groceries are too expensive to throw out in this economy, so unless a product will cause you harm due to a specific health issue such as diabetes or kidney disease, you will be encouraged to use up what you have and purchase a different product on your next trip to the supermarket. Again, a real life healthy kitchen check up is not as dramatic as those on television, but are just as fun!
This service can really help provide you with ideas for healthy meals and snacks, tips on saving money at the supermarket, kitchen tools that can make meal preparation healthier and easier and staples to keep on hand to prevent swinging through the drive through at meal times. By having a stocked kitchen and easy to use pantry staples, you can stick to your meal plan and meet your health and weight goals in no time.
