Nutritionist: 7 Foods That Should Always Be In Your Fridge


By Joe Crowe

The secret to a quick meal that’s healthy and also tastes good lies in the contents of your refrigerator, according to nutritionist Nathalie Rhodes in HealthLine. 

Rhodes says these seven foods can always be found in her fridge:

Baby Spinach  Baby spinach is high in vitamin C, which is needed for collagen and vitamin A, which promotes youthful skin, and vitamin K, which is good for strong bones and digestive health.

Avocados   Avocados are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats that boost brain and heart healt, the nutritionist says.

Almonds  A healthy source of fat, protein, and nutrients. They also promote smooth, vibrant, stress-free skin, Rhodes says.

Lemons  They contain natural acids that act as a cleansing agent to flush toxins out of the system. They also contain vitamins E and B, magnesium, potassium, and beta-carotene. Many of the antioxidants are found in the peel, Rhodes says.

Blueberries  Blueberries are one of the fruits that contain the most antioxidants. The antioxidant anthocyanin is the reason the berries are blue. Choose frozen berries if you’re worried about fruit going bad in the fridge.

Kale - Use this superfood in everything, the nutritionist writes—eat it raw, cook it, use it in juices, smoothies, salads, sautés, soups, pastas, and grain and egg bowls.

Organic Pasture-Raised Eggs - One egg by itself contains 7 grams of high-quality protein, and provides essential amino acids, 5 grams of healthy fats, as well as iron, choline, vitamin B-12, and vitamin D.  Always eat the whole egg, the nutritionist noted. The yolk is the most nutritious part, she said. Rhodes says the bottom line is to load up your fridge with healthy, whole foods, and to make sure some leafy green is always around.
