My 6 Healthy Fridge Must Haves
One of the easiest ways to avoid eating junk is to not have it in the house, right?
...'out of sight, out of mind'
...same kind of theory goes for eating healthy food:
Keep your kitchen stocked with healthy foods & ingredients to ensure you eat healthy!
Here's 6 healthy essentials that I always have in my fridge:
1. Cole slaw
...& I don't mean the mayo-drenched kind at picnics and barbecues.
Just a plain bag of chopped cabbage and carrots.
Steam in the microwave & switch up your salad base from lettuce.
Mash some avocado into it with a little lime juice & seasoning for a savory & satiating snack.
2. PB Fit
I mix it with water to make my own peanut butter and keep it in a small cup.
WAY less calories than regular peanut butter, and has MORE protein!
Slice up some fruit & us the PB Fit as a fruit dip.
Drizzle over oatmeal, smoothie bowls, even popcorn!
3. SOAKED chia seeds
...emphasis on 'soaked'.
When they're soaked, they're easier to digest, AND the texture is SO satisfying, in my opinion.
Chia seeds are a great source of fiber!
Add to oatmeal, overnight oats, and smoothies.
Make chia pudding.
Honeycrisp apples are my FAVORITE. There's nothing better than one of these when they're in season and taste like you just picked it right off the tree.
A quick, healthy snack
Perfect for when you're in a hurry or on the go. *Don't forget to grab the PB Fit, too* ;)
Great boost of hydration!
I like to go for organic whenever possible, and I LOVE pineapple salsa. Perfect sweet & savory combo!
Pair with fresh veggie sticks for a super satisfying, healthy, & low calorie snack.
Super healthy & tasty salad dressing substitute.
Hot tip: make sure you read the label before buying...most salsas are super low calorie (10-20 cals per serving), so you can feel great about eating a good amount of it, but check out the sodium content before ya grab & go. I personally won't buy one that's over 200mg sodium per serving, because I know I'll eat a lot of it, and I don't want to have to worry about my salsa affecting my sodium levels. The other thing to keep an eye out for is added sugars. Don't let neglecting to do this easy step ruin what should be a healthy fridge staple!
6. Unsweetened almond milk
...any unsweetened plant or nut milk like cashew, coconut, etc.
Add to coffee, smoothies, oatmeal, chia pudding.
Add to baked goods recipes.
Stock your fridge with the good food & ya can't lose! ;)
