10 Nutritious Snacks You Should Always Have In Your Fridge
Especially for people who work from home, the refrigerator is an extremely tempting monster in the kitchen. It’s mid-morning and you feel as though your breakfast was yesterday. Your tummy is growling and begging to be fed. Or perhaps the late night news is on and you simply want a little something to hold you over til the morning. It’s inviting to grab the sugar-laced stuff, however if you have good, nutritious choices in the fridge, then you won’t find yourself 5 pounds heaver in three months.
We are providing you a list of 10 great foods to keep in your fridge. Stock these foods and you will always be ready to have a delicious, guilt-free snack.
10. Edamame – snack food on steamed edamame which are filled with iron, calcium and other vitamins and minerals. It is a Japanese soybean which has a great nutty taste. You can get it fresh in the seafood area or in the frozen section already shelled.
9. Cottage Cheese – this delicious snack is loaded with casein, a protein that keeps you feeling full for a longer time of time. On it’s own, or combine it with fresh fruit for a little bit of sweetness, or almonds for a nice crunch.
8. Peanut Butter – not necessarily in the fridge, but a great, healthy snack. It is packed with healthy monounsaturated fats and folate, a B vitamin. But don’t buy the processed kind off the shelf, get the fresh kind in your deli department – they literally put the roasted peanuts through a grinder, no preservatives or additives.
7. Almonds – a handful of raw almonds provide a wholesome substitute for oily, crunchy snacks like potato chips and crackers). Have them in the fridge to prevent its natural oils from oxidation.
6. Milk – you should always get low-fat or non-fat milk in the fridge. A small cup of milk is quite pleasing and one 8 ounce glass per day helps to provide your daily dose of calcium. A lot better for you than that scoop of ice cream or frozen yogurt.
5. Eggs – whether you like to whip up a quick scramble or have them hard-boiled – try to keep eggs available. We always have a half dozen hard-boiled eggs in the fridge – remove the yolk and fill it with hummus for a tasty, robust snack.
4. Miso – this may be an unexpected item to store in your fridge, but you’ll get tons of use from it. Simply mix it with hot water and it dissolves into a tasty soup. Be sure to choose a low-sodium kind.
3. Bananas – they are rich in potassium and fiber, key nutrients for your daily living. Always good on their own, but enjoy with peanut butter or in your oatmeal for a more filling snack.
2. Homemade Kale Chips – very easy to make, and a terrific snack to get around: 1. Preheat oven to 375F; 2. Wash 2 bunches of kale, remove the stems, tear into small pieces; 3. Toss with 2 tsp olive oil and spread on baking sheet; 4. Salt lightly; 5. Bake until crisp and slightly golden around sides (10 minutes).
1. Hummus – an easy go to already prepared in your deli section. As its popularity grows, so do the varieties. Be smart – don’t mix with crackers or chips, enjoy it with sliced veggies or in a hard-boiled egg as described above.
