Is your fridge full of junk and in need of a makeover? Learn how to stock the perfect fridge with these rules!
Rule #1: Stock Up on Essentials
Eggs: They contain healthy cholesterol and are good for your heart.
Milk: If you go for dairy, choose 2%. Hemp and almond milk are also good choices.
Whole grain bread: Choose a loaf with at least 3 grams of fiber per slice.
Rule #2: Color Your Fruit and Vegetable Drawers
Your fruit and vegetable drawers should contain every color of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, purple and brown.
Red peppers, tomatoes, apples
Oranges
Lemons
Spinach and kale
Grapes
Mushrooms
etc
If you can’t fit all of this produce in your produce drawer, remember that you can also choose frozen vegetables.
Rule #3: Makeover Your Dairy Drawer
Remove the temptation to binge on high-fat cheeses by buying cheeses that are big on flavor or naturally contain less fat. Or, better yet, snack on Greek yogurt instead.
Shredded or grated Parmesan: You don’t have eat a lot to experience the flavor.
Goat cheese: Delicious and creamy with less fat and calories than cow’s milk cheeses.
Greek yogurt: This staple is high in protein and great for cooking.
Rule #4: Pack Your Fridge With Protein
Replace ground beef as your family’s go-to protein with one of these leaner options:
Chicken: Lean breasts and rotisserie are both good options.
Lean turkey: If you buy lunch meat, look for brands with no added nitrates, or choose ground turkey as a beef substitute.
Tofu: Try extra firm if your family is trying it for the first time.
Rule #5: Chill Your Condiments
Choose condiments that have a long shelf life and health benefits, including: 
Jarred garlic
No sugar added fruit preserves
Mustard
Salsa
Hummus
