Eliminating Highly Processed Foods as Part of a Healthy Lifestyle

There are many things I’ve noticed when it comes to the needs and wants of homeowners ready to embark on a kitchen remodel or new build. High atop that list are ways to promote not just a healthier lifestyle, but also a less wasteful one.

When it comes to specifying appliances, are those appliances putting money back into your pocket? It’s not just about efficiency either. While the average Sub-Zero refrigerator consumes less energy than a 75-watt light bulb, it goes even further. By adapting NASA technology, Sub-Zero utilizes antimicrobial air purification. It literally scrubs air of mold spores and ethylene gas every 20 minutes allowing your fresh fruits and vegetables to stay fresh longer.

Did you know that a typical American family of four throws away $50 worth of fresh produce a month? That’s $600 a year. Sub-Zero products are built to last a minimum of 20 years – that’s $12,000! A luxury appliance that literally pays for itself.


With increased intentions around shopping local farmer’s markets, coupled with a commitment towards consuming and preparing fresh foods, the Sub-Zero difference helps maximize the effort. Looking to make small changes towards a healthier lifestyle?

Here are some tips to creating a sustainable plan (not a diet) around fresh living:

  • Make a pledge or intention with your family and try it for 60 days
  • Eliminate processed foods as much as possible
  • Menu planning is key – post a weekly menu plan the whole family can see
