If you want to eat healthier and lose weight, a fridge makeover may be just what you need. Keeping these foods on-hand will help you make smart choices when you’re tired, busy, or craving junk. Sometimes when you go grocery shopping with an empty stomach you make some unhealthy choices, try to go with a really nice mean on you and with a list:


Nut Butters: Smear them on whole-grain toast, add them to smoothies, or slather them on apple slices for a quick snack that will keep you full.




Lemon: Squeeze lemon into your water or tea to jazz up your drink without adding calories. Might we suggest keeping a pitcher of this cucumber, ginger, and lemon detox water in your fridge to stay hydrated and energized.




Greek Yogurt: Instead of opting for a high-calorie dessert, grab a helping of Greek yogurt topped with fruit. Greek yogurt also makes a healthy replacement for sour cream, butter, or any of these other ingredients you an substitute Greek yogurt for.




Eggs: Keeping a few hard-boiled eggs in your fridge makes having a healthy, protein-filled breakfast effortless.




Hummus: The high-protein dip is great with veggies for a low-calorie snack, and you can use it in place of salad dressing or mayo. Buy a tub, or get creative and make your own flavorful hummus recipes.




Baby Spinach: Baby spinach is an easy way to add nutrients to almost any meal. Throw it on pizza, pasta, sandwiches, soups—basically anything—for a dose of vitamin A and other nutrients.
