Let's explore our kitchens. When is the last time you cleaned out the cupboards and tossed out expired items?

Do you know what ingredient names the food manufacturers use when listing sugar in their products?

Cleaning the kitchen cupboards can be a daunting task, but a very important one.

As you remove the items, check the expiration date.

Start four piles - 1st is for the keepers; 2nd to give to someone you know who will want it; 3rd is for the items to be donated to a food pantry; 4th is the trash can.

Just like the advice given for cleaning the bedroom closet - if you haven’t worn it in two years - donate it. Same goes with the kitchen. If you haven’t cooked with it in the past 12 months, pitch it.
