This week is a challenge that I both love  and dread all at the same time!  We’re going to raid our ENTIRE KITCHEN – getting rid of anything that we no longer need, use, or that isn’t serving our health and fitness goals.

So let’s get started!

  1. Let’s start with the pantry…. And go through every shelf and toss anything that’s expired, questionable (hey, it happens!), or is overly processed.
  2. Then, you’ll move to your kitchen cabinets and drawers and do the same thing.
  3. Lastly, you’ll put on your “it’s go time” face, and get busy with your refrigerator and freezer!

Personally, I like to do each area one at a time, raiding it and then giving each area a little scrub-down as I go.

Have a question about how long you should keep foods? Here’s an awesome chart you can download:

Once you’re done cleaning everything out, take a few minutes to assess what’s left and see what you need to restock in your kitchen!   This may not sound fun- but I PROMISE when you’re done, your soul will be happy 🙂

Are you in for this week’s challenge?  If you are, post up your “before” pic of one part of your kitchen so we can all hold each other accountable!
