Short On Time – Keep These Nutrition Staples on Hand
- Low-fat yogurt/cottage cheese. Both offer the high calcium women need for bone health nad protein to rebuild muscle tissue and stablize blood sugar and hunger.
- Precut, prewashed vegetables. Easy to cook and prepare. Grape or Compari tomatoes, baby carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach and green beans are all versatile, low-calorie and rich in antioxidants and fiber.
- Low-sodium bean soups. Ideal for inexpensive, complete and filling meals or snacks. They offer good amounts of protein, fiber and veggies and are easy to store.
- Oranges, apples, pears and grapefruits. Berries and bananas have short shelf lives, but these power fruits can last more than a week, and they help meet your daily 2 servings of fruit.
