A new year often means a lot of change. The “new you” will often try to include changes to your work life, personal life, social life, and daily habits, and so much more!

This year, don’t forget to give your food cupboard an overhaul too, though. Pair your 2017 gym goals with a healthy cupboard too!

We’ve selected 6 of the best foods you should keep in your kitchen to make sure you’re eating as healthily as possible:

1. Lemons

You can use lemons for so many different things – drinks, meals, snacks! And you should, too. They contain over 100% of your daily vitamin C intake, they’re super rich in calcium, and they cleanse your stomach. One of our favorite lemon uses is hot water and lemon to kickstart the day.

2. Spinach

Spinach is a must have in the kitchen. Low in calories, low in fat, low in cholesterol, and rich in good things like vitamins and minerals! There are too many benefits to list. It’s especially great for an energy boost, so keep it handy for when the lethargy sets in.

3. Almonds

These nuts have to be one of our favorite snacks at Career Girl Daily. One of the most popular benefits is the way it reduces hunger and helps your overall calorie intake. But they’re also rich in fiber, antioxidants, and protein, and super low in carbs! Stick these in your work bag for a healthy snack tomorrow.

4. Oatmeal

This breakfast food is incredibly popular for a reason. The complex-carbohydrate oatmeal can lower cholesterol, is good for your heart, and high in vitamin B and potassium among other things! We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so store some oatmeal in your kitchen cupboard for a healthy and tasty morning option.

5. Root vegetables 

Root vegetables include sweet and regular potatoes, onions, and yams. You can also use butternut squash and pumpkin in place of something like chips that will encourage you to eat healthily. There’s nothing like cubes of sweet potato and carrots to accompany your meal, experts recommend you swap them out for grains like rice. They are high in fiber so will make you feel fuller for longer, so use less of them when cooking!

6. Peas, beans, and lentils

Green peas and beans are a great vegetable to fill your plate up with. If you pile greens onto two-thirds of your plate, you’ll feel full but won’t put on weight. Green peas are full of vitamins, like B2, C, B1 and zinc, while beans and lentils are a great source of protein if you aren’t looking to eat meat. The great thing about beans and lentils is that they can be stored for a long time, which makes meal prep a lot easier!
