8 Refrigerator Essentials for a Healthy Life

8 Refrigerator Essentials for a Healthy Life

I’ve created a list of 8 refrigerator essentials. These foods will keep you on track for healthy eating! With a helpful list of refrigerator essentials, you will know exactly what you need to purchase when you go to the grocery store. 

1% Milk is the first refrigerator essential. It has enough fats to use in baking, but it is still delicious to drink plain or put in your cereal. Diary milk contains nourishing minerals, like calcium, and healthy fats that our body needs.


Eggs are practically a miracle food. As a refrigerator essential, eggs are used in baking, cooking, or on their own as a meal. Eggs are a great source of high-quality protein, and they contain many healthy nutrients! The egg white is a rich source of vitamin D, zinc, iron, and copper. The yolk contains healthy fats and vitamin B2.

Carrots are great to have on hand. They contain vitamin A and other important nutrients! They can be implemented into meals or eaten as a quick snack. Plus, carrots have a fairly long refrigeration life, so you can keep them in your fridge for a week or two.

Broccoli is a fiber-packed food and a rich source of vitamin K and vitamin C. Broccoli can be steamed as a side dish or it can be tossed into an omelette for a nutritious breakfast! It is a refrigerator essential because it is an easy food to incorporate into different meals.

Berries are definitely refrigerator essentials. You don't need a variety of berries in your fridge at one time, but try rotating blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Berries can be used in smoothies, as a topping for oatmeal, or as a quick snack. They contain healthy antioxidants and help keep you healthy by boosting your immune system!

Fresh greens are refrigerator essentials because you can use them to make a delicious salad for lunch or a side salad for dinner. Spinach, romaine lettuce, and kale are great choices for your salad greens.

Salmon is a refrigerator essential because it provides an easy way to get healthy lean protein and important omega 3 fatty acids. Prepare salmon for your dinner's main course and use leftovers to top your lunch salad. Yum!

Sauces, Dressings
It is important to keep your favorite flavor of sauces and dressings stocked! Eating healthy is more fun if you enjoy the flavor of what you’re eating. Pre-make your favorite healthy dressings and sauces so they are always available when you need them.
