Love Freely, Laugh Genuinely, Eat Colorfully

What's In Your Fridge

Is your refrigerator helping or hurting you?  I like to think of my refrigerator as my farmacy.  I fill it with an array of local, organic, colorful foods.  I get asked so often, what I keep in my fridge, so I wanted to show a sneak peak of what I eat throughout the week.  As I have mentioned in previous blogs, I have dealt with different digestive issues since I was younger and food truly has always been the most reliable and safest form of medicine. 

I try to always be very aware of what I put in my body.  Real whole foods are just that, real and whole.  I know we all get so busy with life and life can be super stressful at times, but our health is so important.  We need to make time to eat right and make that a priority.  There are so many beautiful foods on this earth to enjoy! 

Some items that I always keep in my fridge are:

  • Leafy Greens (for salads, soups, smoothies, and other meals)
  • Celery (for my celery juice, soups, and snacking)
  • Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice (Vitamin C and it's just so good)
  • Carrots (I love carrots)
  • Fresh Fruit (for fruit salads, added to oatmeal, and for snacking)
  • Nuts & Olives (healthy fats, great for snacking)
  • Nut Butters (one of my favorite nut butters is Artisan Organics Raw Almond Butter
  • Fresh Herbs (a must)
  • Cucumbers (for juicing, salads, and for snacking)
  • Nut Mylks (homemade and certain organic store bought) One of my favorite store bought brands is, Forager
  • Probiotic Yogurt (coconut cult, I prefer the organic original which I use in my smoothies)
  • Fresh Figs (I grew up eating these raw, picking them right off of my grandmothers fig trees)

I always try to be very aware of what I put in my body, so I prefer organic over conventional when possible, because of the use of herbicides, pesticides, and other dangerous chemicals sprayed on conventional foods.   I wash my fruits and vegetables ahead of time so that when I am hungry I can just grab what I want and go!
