7 Nutrient-Rich Foods for the Fridge

Updated: Sep 29, 2020

Eating a variety of nutrient rich foods can help you feel energized and can support your immune system so that it stays strong and working at it's best.

So that you can limit trips to the grocery store, have your kitchen stocked with some nutrient-rich ingredients to make easy nourishing meals and snacks.

To help you, here are 7 basic, nutrient-rich foods to stock in your fridge. This is what I stock up on -- take what works for you, leave what doesn't.

When it comes to fresh veggies and fruits, choose ones that are longer-lasting, like apples, oranges, cabbage, celery, and carrots. (For-the-counter produce like potatoes, sweet potato, squash, onions are also great choices that are long-lasting.)

When planning meals, start with food in the fridge: check for expiration/best before dates on foods in the fridge and use those foods up first to help reduce food waste and keep your kitchen budget-friendly.

Before you head to the grocery store, check out my kitchen strategy to help you do an inventory of food you have, make a mini meal plan and write your list.

Stay safe and healthy,
