Transformation starts in your fridge. Stock yours with these better-body staples:

1/ Rotisserie Chicken You already love it, right? Go ahead: it’s ready-to-eat, high-quality protein. Pair it with a vegetable if you’re ever in a pinch for a meal.

2/ Precut Vegetables Supermarkets these days make preparation a snap. From diced peppers and onions to shredded Brussels sprouts, you can find any vegetable ready to toss into a roasting pan or skillet.

3/ Precooked Sausage, like Chorizo New flavours, lean protein. Heat, then eat. Can’t find it at the supermarket? Check your butcher.

4/ Plain Greek Yoghurt, or Kefir It’s time to give these immigrants a home in your fridge. Plain Greek yoghurt offers twice the protein of traditional yoghurt and about the same number of carbs, making it a great snack or starting point for breakfast. Kefir is a fermented milk product that falls between cream and yoghurt. The plain version contains almost a 1:1 ratio of protein to carbohydrates and has enough probiotics to keep your digestive tract happy.

5/ Smoked Salmon Okay, you weren’t expecting this. That’s part of what makes it great. It’s ready to eat, carb-free and full of satiating protein and fat. Having smoked salmon in the middle of the day will quickly change your concept of “diet food” snacks.

6/ Cheese Sticks Portable protein, properly portioned. Whether they’re string cheese (mozzarella) or Swiss, these should always be in your fridge. Pair them with a small piece of fruit for a snack, or chop ’em up and toss them on a salad with some rotisserie chicken to round out a fat-burning meal.
