Is your kitchen making you fat?

That is the title of an article out of the UK that asserts that the design of today’s kitchen is contributing to our expanding waistlines. Given that the kitchen has quickly become the epicenter of the home, perhaps all of the extra time spent there does equal extra calories being consumed. But I think correlating large fridges, islands, and pantries to weight gain is not fair. The fridge doesn’t make you eat bacon and bonbons. And you don’t have to stock you pantry with sugary, processed foods and drinks. A beautifully designed kitchen increases the efficiency of preparing food (hopefully encouraging home-cooked meals), and it’s up to the homeowner to fill their beautiful new kitchen with healthy foods and eating habits.
