15 Foods A Nutritionist Always Keeps In Her Fridge

Having the right mix of nutritious foods on hand helps me hit my daily target for veggies and fruit, and lets me throw together simple but balanced meals, so I don’t ever have to rely on takeout. To stock up for the week, I shop at multiple spots, including my local farmer’s markets, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, traditional supermarkets, and on amazon.com.

This suggests that it's not meat alone that has the effect – it seems to be more ...
