September 30, 2015
Which healthy foods do Soul instructors keep stocked in their fridge and shelves at all times? 54 rockstars revealed their everyday essentials…
Granny Smith apples!
I am currently on a kale kick. I keep restocking it and love finding new ways to incorporate it into every meal!
Healthy food in fridge: Organic free range chicken, Kombucha and pressed juices and probiotic yogurts.
I'm a huge fan of the Peanut butter with Chia and Flax seeds from Trader Joe's. Throw it on a slice of bread or with a banana it's such an easy snack!
Spinach and berries! I love to use them either in a smoothie or a quick salad between classes!
Carrots and hummus.
Organic frozen sliced mangos from Trader Joe’s. They’re practically like candy.
I'm killing the veggie tuna salad game. Fresh albacore tuna with minced kale, shredded carrots, celery and like the whole kitchen sink. DELISH! Also, pickled veggies. Carrots. Okra. Green beans… and of course pickles ice cold!
I honestly don't have any healthy snacks on me ... I tend to have a small meal instead of a snack when I'm hungry. But my boyfriend keeps kombucha at home so does that count?
Bananas. Gotta carb up!
I am always snacking on carrots and hummus!
Grapes! Frozen grapes are pretty much my favorite snack in the world.
Kale chips! I'm also a huge fan of Greek yogurt and activated charcoal juice smoothies at Juice Generation.
I love to snack, so much so that I feel like I'm grazing (bad habit I'm working on). I've realized that working with my nutritionist, Andrea Platzman, in my search for healthy satisfying snacks we've come up with a good variety. Back to Nature Cashew Almond Pistachio mix is always in my pantry. Mini Babybel cheese is always in my fridge. Pre-cut celery and carrots are always around to have with either almond butter, peanut butter, hummus or guacamole — depending on my mood. And dark chocolate.
I always have an apples and a jar of peanut butter around as well as pumpkin seeds. Easy for a snack at home to to-go!
Always an avocado. No explanation needed.
Carrots and hummus.
Watermelon, ice water and Quest bars.
Grilled chicken or almond milk to mix up a protein shake.
Avocados forever! They are perfect in my opinion. They go great on pretty much anything at anytime and keep me feeling full but never too full.
Food that’s always in my fridge: frozen fruit! I make sure to always have something to throw into a smoothie.
I always have a ripened bundle of sweet BANANAS ready to be tossed into the blender for a giant, nutritious, hydrating smoothie! Bananas help fight nerves, stress and high blood pressure, plus they soothe heart burn, are high in fiber and just two bananas can give you enough energy for a 90 minute workout! How could I resist?
Spinach. I've found that it's the easiest way to fit greens into my day. You can put it in EVERYTHING!
Green apples and almond butter!
Hard boiled eggs.
We all love fruit in our family. A few faves are watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, pineapple and mango!
Hope dips: Sriracha hummus and habanero lentil dip are my favorites.
Caramel, almond, and sea salt KIND bars.
Trader Joe’s Crunchy Peanut Butter with Flax & Chia Seeds' and avocados! Good fats! Good snacks!
Pistachios. I like the sweet chili, and salt and pepper flavors, but plain is just fine.
GRAPEFRUIT! To snack or to fight off urges. When I'm trying to be extra good, instead of grabbing that cookie, I’ll eat a grapefruit! It usually works!
I always have a mixed bag of raw trail mix to snack on.
I'm obsessed with fruit — I always have grapes in my fridge and freezer!
Pink Lady apples and peanut butter.
Rice cakes and peanut butter.
I always stock my fridge with fresh produce so when hunger strikes and I need a snack, it's something fresh and good for the body. For the fall, I am most inclined to grab an apple… ’tis the season!
Health Warrior Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Bars. They fill me up when I get hungry before bed, contain only 100 calories, and chia seeds contain tryptophan which is an aide to a restful night’s sleep!
I always have Fage Greek Yogurt in the fridge. Perfect for my mornings with some honey, granola and a cup of Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical.
Almond butter! Put in your oatmeal, put it in your smoothie, put it on some toast! It's so versatile, like the the little black dress of delicious food topping options.
Watermelon and the Cashew, Almond and Dark Chocolate trail mix from Trader Joes. Because it’s delicious. Like, Woah.
Almond milk, bananas, oatmeal and peanut butter are ALWAYS in my kitchen.... excellent fuel for a busy active lifestyle!
I always have Greek yogurt in the fridge. I jazz it up with a handful nuts and raisins, and it keeps me feeling full.
Greek yogurt with chia seeds and almond butter.
I always keep at least two dozen eggs in my refrigerator. They can be prepared so many different ways and I never, ever get sick of them.
Edamame — my guilt-free go-to snack. Easy to prep and you can vary the taste just by throwing on a different spice.
Healthy foods that is always in my fridge are hummus and veggies (broccoli and cauliflower). Together they’re my quick and easy "go-to" snack!
As a Paleo diet enthusiast I always have fresh fruits and vegetables from the farmer's market in my fridge and pantry.
Berries! Blue, black, straw… any kind! I add them to yogurt for a snack and my oatmeal for breakfast!
Avocado, because, well it’s avocado.
Red grapes and hummus. (Not together, though!)
Bananas. So cheap, so healthy, so easy to take when you're on the go.
I ALWAYS have spinach in my fridge, I can’t live without it! I use it for salads, smoothies, juices, sometimes I just snack on it. It’s full of nutrients and antioxidants and come on, Popeye loved it, so should you!
BEA DEL ROSARIO
Quinoa is always in my pantry. It is a complete protein which makes it good to eat at every meal, and even better it’s a plant-based protein! It is also very easy to make and versatile. I make some ahead of time for the week. Add it to your breakfast oatmeal or a homemade taco bowl (better than Chipotle if made at home).
