When you get hungry and have no healthy foods in your house, it can be tempting to reach for something unhealthy, like junk food. Fix this by keeping a few staple items in your house, so you can reach for those instead of that bag of chips.
You can use these items in so many different ways and in tons of dishes:
- I love the Applegate Farm brand of deli meats, such as turkey and chicken slices. Not only do they taste delicious, but they also don’t have any preservatives!
Low-Fat Cheeses And Yogurt
- The brand Horizon makes great organic and hormone-free cheeses. And for yogurt, always look for 0% fat Greek yogurt, like Fage or Chobani.
- As long as the pasta you buy says “made with 100% whole wheat or whole grain,” you’re good to go! If you’re a picky eater and don’t love how whole grain pasta looks, try Dreamfields, or Ronzoni Smart Taste—both look and taste just like white pasta!
Frozen Fruits and Veggies
- Always keep these handy! I love mixing frozen fruits with ice-cold non-fat milk or yogurt for a mid-day treat, and frozen veggies can be heated up for a quick, healthy stir fry dinner—just throw in chicken and brown rice.
