  1. Trade cookies in the cupboard for bananas in the cupboard. Bananas love darkness so they keep longer, so put them in a bowl and slip them in the cupboard.
  2.  Apples go great in the crisper or serve at the table in a bowl!
  3.  Fruits like blueberries, blackberries, strawberries (don't hide them in the fridge drawers!) put them on the shelf of the refrigerated at eye level! Position them so they look irresistible!
  4. Strain grapes and leave them on the counter in the kitchen where your family passes often. Your family will eat the good foods first before all the junky packaged/processed foods. 
  5. Cut and wash vegetables and put a natural dip for easy healthy snacking.
  6. Make slushes out of frozen fruit,  water, milk or yogurt!
  7. Shop mostly from the outside isle of your grocery store
  8. If it comes in a package and you feel you need to eat it, check for unnatural ingredients.
  9. Stock up on natural foods that come in the ground by freezing or dehydrating.
  10. Lastly make treats with your kids that involve good food ingredients.
Have fun tricking yourself into eating better by following these tips and tricks!
