Extend Spring Cleaning

SSM 13b

Extend spring cleaning to your cupboards, pantry, refrigerator and freezer. All of those not-so-great for you foods that snuck in over the colder months need to go. Replace them with healthy staples like protein powders, tuna packed in water, fresh fruits and veggies, light cheeses and dairy products, portion packs of almonds, and frozen fruits for thick protein smoothies. It’s so much easier to choose healthy snacks when you’re stocked up on the right stuff.
