The ideal “weight loss pantry’ is an article series dedicated to uncovering what SHOULD be in your fridge (or pantry) 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: Apples

If you’re dieting but not eating apples then you need to read this.

You see, while apples may not be so special that they are ‘magic’, they are certainly an amazing fruit for a number of reasons.

First, they taste great, and there’s an apple for everyone. I really love Golden Delicious and Fuji apples, but you may prefer a more tart one like the Granny Smith. Whatever your preference, the nutrition to be found in apples is wonderful. They are full of fibre, vitamins and energy, PLUS they are sweet so you can use them to assist with your sugar cravings.

Apples are also versatile. They can be carried easily as they are self-packaged, and they can be paired with a bit of peanut butter to make a great on-the-go snack.

Apples are also easily turned into a great healthy dessert, and they can be grated, put into salads, added to smoothies and dried.

Apples are a staple fruit that should be in your weight loss kitchen. Get them now.
