Pantry Purge

If I have it, at some point, I’ll eat it. If I don’t have it, I’ll crave it, I’ll wish I had it, but eventually the craving will pass.

If you’re like me, and you want to skip some of the things you used to eat that haven’t done well for you, then maybe you need to do a pantry purge.
I don’t like throwing food away but it’s better to throw it away than eat it just because you have it and then workout for months to try to burn it off.
Make your pantry purge part of your spring cleaning.

  1. White sugar
