a kitchen stocked with healthy, nourishing food can be the difference between eating clean and calling uber eats. to stay lean, strong, healthy and glowing, a thoughtfully stashed fridge is key to nourishing your body properly for benefits that start from the inside out.
here are 10 essentials that fit, glowing nuuters keep their kitchens stocked with at all times.
regularly consuming lemon water helps strengthen bones, promote oral health, and prevent anaemia and kidney stones due to its citrate content. lemon juice contains various antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that boost brain and heart health.
2. free-range eggs
nature's perfect food, each egg contains 6 grams of protein, 70 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids, high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin (which lower your risk of vision loss like macular degeneration later in life), as well as healthy doses of vitamins a, d and e.
hummus is made with sesame seed butter (tahini) which contains monounsaturated fats that help with weight loss and reduce belly fat. chickpeas and tahini also contain calcium which helps contribute to good bone health.

5. sprouts – alfalfa, mung bean, red clover and broccoli.
sprouts are jam-packed with vitamins and minerals. sprouting enhances the nutritional value of grains, legumes or beans. these contain certain anti-nutrients, including phytic acid, which locks up important minerals. it also inhibits our digestive enzymes, which can cause indigestion and intestinal gas.
antioxidant-rich strawberry helps improve heart health and lowers blood pressure. they can also help better brain function and enhance eye and skin health and arthritis. the possible polyphenolic content of strawberries makes them beneficial for improving the immune system and reducing premature ageing signs.
7. natural yogurt
a nutritional powerhouse, an 8-ounce cup of natural yogurt provides as much as half of your daily requirement for calcium. the same serving size also provides 57 percent of your daily requirement for vitamin b12, 10 percent of magnesium and 12 percent of potassium. yogurt also contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a great source of complete protein. if you choose low-fat or nonfat yoghurt, it's also a source of lean protein.
a nutrient-dense food, avocados are an excellent source of monounsaturated fat and vitamin e and are a good source of folate. they also supply more soluble fibre than other fruit and contain iron, copper and potassium.
9. non-starchy vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, radishes, tomatoes, and spinach
non-starchy vegetables help with weight loss because they are naturally low in calories and are naturally low in fat supporting good health. super high in fibre they are a must-have in your diet to help maintain the health of your digestive tract, low cholesterol and weight loss.
10. cottage cheese
a great source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and selenium, cottage cheese's benefits include weight loss, a good supply of protein, b complex vitamins, and healthy fats.
