Caroline Manzo, from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey, understands the importance of a well-balanced diet. Her fridge is chock-full of Oz-approved foods. Check out these specifics that you can incorporate in your fridge:
Eggs: Whether it’s plain eggs, egg whites or hard-boiled eggs, make sure to always have this kitchen essential around. It’s a common misconception that egg yolks are bad for you; in moderation they can increase good cholesterol (HDL).
Greek yogurt: Manzo keeps a full stock of Greek yogurt in her fridge at all times. High in protein and low in calories, a cup of Greek yogurt is one of the best snacks to help boost your metabolism and give you your daily fix of nutrients.
Tomatoes: Red tomatoes, especially those with darker red colors, are high in lycopene, a known cancer-fighting carotenoid. Adding raw or cooked tomatoes will give your next meal a boost of antioxidants.
Garlic: Garlic is a powerhouse food, known to help your immunity and possibly even lower cholesterol. This kitchen staple is a versatile ingredient.
Broccoli: Broccoli is a rich source of glutathione, an antioxidant that helps to strengthen the immune system.
Red Wine: Manzo also keeps a bottle of red wine handy. A glass a day may help lower the risk of heart disease, but careful not to overdo it.
