The ideal “weight loss fridge’ is an article series dedicated to uncovering what SHOULD be in your fridge if you hope to lose weight in 2018. So much focus is placed on what you shouldn’t eat if you’re dieting, so let’s check out what you should.

Stock up on: Eggs

If you’re looking to get a great quality, low calorie meal that is high in protein and really tasty then look no further – eggs are the solution!

Eggs are REALLY low in calories (65 calories per egg), high in protein (about 7g per egg) and full of nutritious fats. Eggs are a great food for people trying to eat less meat, and can be used in a variety of creative ways.

They can be cooked in numerous ways – scrambled, boiled, fried (not in vegetable oil though), poached or used raw (if you like that sort of thing), and substituted into all sorts of meals to up the protein quotient of the whole meal.

A couple of eggs packs a mean nutrition punch, and will keep you feeling full for ages. Eggs are also really great because they are cheap (especially for a protein-rich food) and last for a long time, so you don’t have to rush through them. If you have the choice (you probably do), opt for free-range eggs. They taste better and are probably healthier too.

Scramble two eggs with some milk, cheese, mushrooms, and onions and serve on a slice of rye toast with some fresh avocado and tomato on the side for power-packed meal that’s full of flavour.
