Have you ever gone to the market in a really healthy mood and bought all sorts of fresh fruits and vegetables. Feeling excited to eat them only to find that 2 weeks later you're throwing these same foods away because they're rotten and no one ate them?
This is so common, but why does it happen? You want them, you know they're good for you, but they end up getting tossed.
The answer is simple, it is not part of your routine. You see most of us are creatures of habit. We are not really thinking about what we're doing most of the time. We're just following our normal routines, and the way we approach the fridge is no different.
Your fridge is set up in a specific way. Things have there normal place. But the problem is that if you do not eat these fruits and vegetables normally, you're not used to accessing those parts of the fridge. And to add to the problem, the crispers are usually frosted or hidden so that you do not see them easily.
So, what can you do to ensure that you eat the fresh healthy fruits and vegetables you buy? The first thing to do is to change where you put them. What do you grab the most out of the fridge? Put the fruit there, and move the other item. This is an easy way to automatically remind yourself that you have fresh fruit to eat.
Second, think about when you're going to eat these fresh foods. We eat in context. Meaning that we eat certain foods at certain times. Think about it. So, think about when you'll eat those bananas you bought; At breakfast, for a morning snack, while you're watching tv at night?
Finally, create routines. Intentionally eat these foods at the same times. Your brain likes what the same, and notices what's different. If you start eating those bananas every morning you'll soon find yourself needing them to get your day off to a "normal" start.
Remember that once habits are established, they tend to run themselves with no need for willpower. This is the easiest way to create a permanent permanent change in your body.
