My 10 Must-Have Foods for the Fridge

Milk and milk alternatives

We always have skim milk in the fridge for cereal, oatmeal, and fruit smoothies. Choosing skim or low-fat 1% milk instead of 2% or whole is an effortless way to slash calories and saturated fat — a real benefit for anyone trying to lose weight or reduce their risk of heart disease. If you aren’t a fan of “moo juice,” there are plenty of healthy alternatives. Soy milk, unsweetened almond milk, lite coconut milk, and so on, are all great dairy-free options that provide a powerful hit of calcium and vitamin D.
