What Turns Up When We Peek into Dietitians' Fridges

By Sandy Schroeder

Most of us eat healthy and take the advice of doctors, and dietitians, which prompted Allissa Rumsey in U.S. World News to see what 10 dietitians actually had in their fridges. The dietitians opened their fridges and added comments about the foods. Here are their food choices with some extra tips.

Hummus - Use it in sandwiches or salads and on toast. Thin it with lemon juice and use it as a salad dressing. Enjoy savory or sweet dessert hummus.

Tahini - This sesame seed seasoning is often used in hummus recipes. Use it to on veggies, fish or chicken, too.

Limes or lemons - Fresh citrus juice can be the perfect finish for fish, chicken or potato dishes.  

Eggs - Quick protein boost as egg salad, or deviled eggs, or wrapped into tortillas to make an egg burrito for breakfast.  

Yogurt - Use plain Greek yogurt to top tacos or add fruit or dark chocolate cocoa and turn it into a dessert. It’s also good for topping breakfast oats along with fruit and flaxseed.

Yeast - Keep it on hand to make bread or pizza dough or whip a batch of English muffins.

Maple syrup - Get the real stuff and use it for waffles, pancakes and French toast.

Tortillas – Turn whole grain tortillas into cheese quesadillas or add black beans, chicken strips, avocado slices and salsa.

Carrots - Assemble little bags of carrot strips for snacks at work or kids’ snacks. Bake strips drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with garlic, parmesan or oregano for a dinner side dish.

Butter - Switch back and forth from butter to olive oil to avocado oil for veggies and baked dishes.

White and purple cauliflower - Pick some up at the farmers market and roast it with olive oil and garlic as a side dish for dinner.

Almond butter - Spread it on breakfast toast or add to preserves to spread on whole grain bread.

Leafy greens - Add tuna, chicken, green onions, olives or beets to create a lunch salad.

Cow’s milk and almond milk - Alternate for cereal topping or cooking.

Asparagus - Grill asparagus with olive oil and serve it with chicken, fish or beef. Put it in water to keep it fresh in the fridge.

Peppers and onions - Use both for chili, casseroles and stir-fry or taco suppers.

Clementines - Enjoy the juicy little tangerines for breakfast, lunch or as snacks.

Green beans - Create a green bean casserole or use them in a stir-fry for dinner.

Brussels sprouts - Roast them with bacon and eat as a side dish.  Or top them with shredded cheese and blue cheese dressing.
