1) Donate/clear out any food in your pantry that is hindering your health goals.
2) Swap in replacement snacks and treats you can feel good about.
3) Try new and healthier alternatives for sugar and flour.
4) Get a few plates/bowls that are smaller than your typical dinner plates.
5) Stock up on some storage containers for cooking/prepping/storing

7) Inspire yourself!
