In preparation for our upcoming 7-Day Clean Eating Group, I thought I would share a short post with you on some basics to try to keep in your fridge when eating healthy. I try and eat healthy everyday, watching my portions and only using fresh ingredients and no processed foods as much as I can. I can’t really tell you what to put into your fridge, but I can tell you what I like to keep in mine!
I hate when my produce goes bad in the fridge, so I make sure to shop smart when it comes to the produce section. I only buy what I know my family is going to eat.
fruits (bananas, apples, pineapple, blueberries… If frozen fruit is on sale, I’ll stock up and use it in my daily shakes)
vegetables (bags of mixed greens, spinach leaves, zucchini, carrots…)
You can buy produce dips like hummus, salsa, and guac., but I prefer to make my own and I’ll be sharing some of those recipes during our 7-Day Clean Eating Group.
****Unless you have your meal plan with recipes planned out for the week, stick to a smaller amount. You can always make a trip to the store later in the week.
What do you or your family eat more of? For us, it’s chicken, ground turkey and lately shrimp. When I meal plan on Sundays, I always check what’s on sale at the grocery store so that I always get what is on sale and freeze what I’m not using.
shrimp or salmon (check your seafood dept sales)
Dairy & Non Dairy Products:
Remember that dairy goes bad pretty fast, so only buy what you can eat.
Greek plain yogurt
fat free cottage cheese
unsweetened almond milk
non-fat/low fat cheese
salad dressings (I usually like to make my own, but will on occasion have a back up in my fridge)
And those are my family’s simple basics! I’ll write up a post later today or tomorrow with the foods I keep in my pantry for a healthy lifestyle!
