I love when a client lets me into their pantry. It’s like snooping into their diary (not that I”d ever do that!). But a pantry is pretty revealing.
Imagine my surprise when I got to this client’s pantry only to find the majority of foods to be all spot on…healthy choices for a healthy lifestyle.
Then the truth came out: this client RARELY eats at home and the food in the pantry has been there for months. Good intentions in the grocery store stocked the shelves, but there was no follow through. The food sits there while the client chooses to eat out almost every day.
First of all, the expense of eating out would be high, but more importantly, the health cost is higher. While it’s possible to make healthy choices while eating out, it’s difficult to have a super healthy diet. Sodium content in foods is usually through the roof as well as fat, even with the best of choices.
