My 10 Must-Have Foods for the Fridge


Apples are a convenient, affordable fruit you can rely on year-round. I keep an assortment of apples stashed in my produce drawer — Granny Smith, Gala, Fiji, and Honey Crisp are some of my family’s favorite varieties. They last in the fridge for six to eight weeks, so you don’t have to worry about them going bad right away. Slice apples into wedges and enjoy with a tablespoon of almond or peanut butter, pair with a string-cheese stick for some protein, or warm in the microwave and sprinkle with cinnamon for dessert. And remember to keep the fiber-rich skin on your apple to get this fruit’s full nutritional power.
