Your counter tops should be uncluttered and an easy place to cook and prepare meals. This will allow you to quickly and easily find things, and prepare your meals in an efficient and enjoyable manner!
Keep fresh fruit (such as bananas and tomatoes) and some vegetables (such as cucumbers) out on the countertops for quick and easy-to-reach smart options. An added bonus is that they decorate and beautify your kitchen. A basketful of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables will make you home look inviting!
Fresh baked whole grain breads out on the countertops can also give a kitchen a warm and welcoming feeling, while providing a substantial addition to any meal. Try to keep fresh baked breads made with whole wheat, rye or pumpernickel available to have with your favorite meals.
Keeping your favorite condiments and spices out on the countertops will spice up your meals in no time, without the hassle of looking through a bunch of drawers or cabinets. Buy a nice spice rack and put it to use! This will allow you to focus immediately on making your meals fun, healthy and delicious – foods that you want to eat. As with proper placement of fresh fruits and vegetables, condiments and spices can add a charming touch to the look and feel of your kitchen area.
