This week’s #fitblog topic is How fit is your fridge?
To go along with the theme, Katy persuaded us to post photos of a look inside our fridge on the fitblog facebook wall. Even as I was taking these photos I wondered if I would actually post them – here you go, a peek into my fridge!
oh, and one bottle of Irn Bru.
This is my YUM shelf! Obviously we like kalamata olives. Pickles (three jars!). Homemade hummus. Fresh ginger root. Marcona almonds. Yellow mustard (I had a craving a couple weeks ago!), organic ketchup and a vegetarian “fish sauce”. Crofters jam and a jar of Speculoos in the back. Like I said, YUM!
Three packages of corn tortillas. Vegan cheeses. A tube of quinoa polenta. Tempeh, two kinds of tofu and a baked tofu under the tempeh. That huge jar in the back? Brewcraft sorghum syrup… Jason’s beer making.
This is the only shelf that is not really a true depiction – normally there are two more large boxes also – my weekly supply of spinach. Also whatever produce that does not fit in the crisper drawers. Don’t ask me why, my bell peppers are generally on my counter with the bananas, apples, avocados and onions (three large bowls). I rarely buy green bells, and when I do, they go in the fridge. I don’t know why.
Two crisper drawers below? Filled with juicing carrots, beets and celery, green beans and two bags of hops for Jason’s beer making.
So there it is! Obviously I need to replenish my spinach – the only grocery store I went to today was the Asian market and they didn’t have any. I need to remedy that before I start having withdrawal symptoms.
I also answered this weeks #fitblog questions:
Q1: What do you consider healthy eating?
Healthy eating to me includes fresh juicing, greens and fruit. Protein comes from cashews, beans, quinoa. I keep dairy, gluten and processed foods to a minimum, and we love dining out and look for restaurants that are sustainable, using fresh whole food, local when possible. Healthy eating also means balance and indulging cravings.
Q2: Do you consider your diet healthy?
I do. Often I eat raw all day, then share a cooked meal with Jason in the evening. I juice at least once a day, usually twice. and I love my spinach smoothies as well!
Q3: What’s your favorite healthy food?
Cashews! Quinoa. Spinach. Bell peppers. Nutritional yeast. Bananas. Dates, figs, dried apricots.
Q4: What’s one thing you could do to improve your diet?
Cut out dairy altogether. I don’t often eat it, but sometimes I do, and the result is sometimes congestion. Sticking to the anti-inflammatory diet makes me feel AWESOME !
If you have a blog, have you ever done a “what’s in my fridge” post? Share the link in the comments – I want to see!
