Spring Clean the Pantry

Is your pantry as healthy as you? If you take the time this spring to reassess fitness and nutrition goals, make sure your pantry matches those ideas, suggests an Idaho dietitian. After throwing away the junk food, restock with whole grains and replace vegetable oil and solid fats with healthier options, like canola oil. “These ingredients are so versatile and when paired with fresh produce, lean meats and whole grains can be transformed into delicious meals and snacks for you and your family,” the author writes.
