What's In My Fridge?

La Petite Maison Verte: What's In My Fridge?

What's In My Fridge?

I saw this post on Serious Eats come up on my RSS feed the other day and will admit to being intrigued.  There's just something about getting a candid look into a usually-unseen part of somebody's life that is so fascinating, so naturally I couldn't resist.  I think it's human nature to be curious, right?

I thought it would be fun to share a peek into my own fridge and freezer.  When I opened up my fridge, there were quite a few things I wanted to toss (or at least hide) but I didn't, otherwise this wouldn't be an honest look!

In the fridge:  THREE different nut butters (Trader Joe's Valencia Peanut Butter, Artisana Raw Pecan Butter and Trader Joe's Almond Butter), 2% Plain Fage Greek Yogurt and 2% Cottage Cheese, leftover Peanut Butter Cup Truffle dessert from Bern's Steakhouse (has since been eaten!) and Cannoli Filling my mom and dad shipped to us from Mike's Pastry in Boston!

You'll also notice we keep a TON of veggies on hand in the fridge because I eat salads every day for lunch, then another salad along with dinner and always a cooked vegetable at dinner time too.  One trick to eating lots of vegetables is BUYING lots of vegetables!  Then, prepare a bunch of them for easy grabbing for snacks:  wash and cut up, then store in plastic containers.  You will be much more likely to grab a veggie for a snack if you have them already prepared!

The bag of BBQ Rib Bones is for Hudson to chew on as an occasional treat :-)

In the door you'll find the usual:  open condiments, soda (Bad, Bad Jules - but truthfully, it was purchased for Rum & Cokes so it's all good!), decaf coffees that we hardly ever use (hence why they're chillin' in the fridge)...oh and LOTS of BOOZE - par-tay at my house!

The Freezer is full of frozen fish (we stock up on frozen sustainable and wild-caught fish at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, when on sale), Trader Joe's goodies, a random frozen pizza that was free and waffles.  Love us some WAFFLES for breakfast!  (The Kashi and Van's brands frozen waffles are low in sugar, high in fiber and protein and are made with 100% whole grains :-)

We also have lots of frozen fruit for smoothies or for adding into plain yogurt or cottage cheese.  And yet more booze.  Clearly somebody in this house must have a drinking problem...but hey, at least it's good booze, right?!

So, that's the fridge and freezer at our house.  Perhaps a little "boring" by some standards, but a fairly typical representation of what you'd find if you came over any old day of the week and took a peek inside our fridge.  We probably wouldn't be the most popular choice for house-sitting but hey, I think our healthy choices (cannoli filling and liquor aside) are serving us pretty well!

What's in YOUR fridge?  Care to share?

We have plenty of booze and nut butters to go around! Just ate the last of the cannolis though!

It's actually incredible how similar our fridges look inside now that I've shopped! I guess it's from shopping together so many times...of course our fridge is minus all of the lovely glutinous ingredients. I took your suggestions above and cut up a bunch of small peppers and celery and put it in tupperware for snacking. Also purchased sunbutter (YUM).

So glad! I was worried about you wasting away with your empty fridge...or having to survive on nothing but wilted kale and cheese....
