A healthy diet starts from what you put in your shopping basket. When we buy healthy food and stocking them in the fridge, we are bound to stay healthy. A simple yet challenging step, isn’t it? To get you started, here’s a list of what all you need to buy every time you visit the supermarket.
Staple fruits and veggies
Never keep you fridge without a few fruits, they need to be consumed on a daily basis. Banana, apple, musambi and papaya are not only nutritious, but are available throughout the year. Seasonal fruits like grapes, mango and orange can be savoured when they’re available. Fruits are a good alternative for junk food; they are delicious, refreshing and healthy.
Including green leafy vegetables and other vegetables is very much needed for a healthy diet.
Perfect for your breakfast, milk is a must as it is rich in calcium and protein. Bread with a label that contains two grams of fibre can be consumed on a daily basis and cornflakes can be added to your breakfast menu as well.
Instead of ice cream, yogurt can be taken especially after meal, which is rich in calcium. Good for digestion and weight loss – yogurt are your fridge essentials.
Nuts have a lot of health benefits and it’s not something that to be excluded from our diet plan. They maybe small but most nuts are packed with fibre and proteins, which we our body needs in abundance. Almonds, walnuts, peanuts and cashew nuts are a few food items that can be consumed on a regular basis in moderate quantity.
