My Fridge: Healthy Basics List

A Green Lemonade beauty emailed me asking for some “must have” items that I like to keep stocked in my refrigerator and pantry. I think we can all agree that most of us are pretty healthy eaters (or at least try to be) – but it’s always nice to eat more fresh produce. It’s the crunchy vegetables (balanced with some roasted and sautéd veggies), the beautiful leafy green salads and the sweet fruit, after all, that fire up your body’s natural rejuvenation work. You see the benefits in radiant skin, Warm Lentil Salad with Carrot Ribbons Parsley and Thyme Recipes Juices e1331643007256 My Fridge: Healthy Basics List more energy and a healthy body. But when your life gets busy, stocking (and eating) a fridge full of fresh fruit, vegetables and lettuces can be difficult. Sometimes you get stumped with what to make, other times you get busy and your fresh groceries spoil. This is how I work around these things with ease of use and budget in mind.

I eat my groceries in order of perishablility; broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc. are quite forgiving.

I like that strategy! What are some of your favorite fridge staples?! (Glad to see someone else likes brussels sprouts too!)

It takes some work to keep a fridge in order! Writing about it is inspiration to take the extra few minutes to keep it that way :>)

For the first time in our rural area we have an organic farm selling shares, we bought one. The were kind to offer to drop our weekly box at the door (quadroplegic and careprovider Mom) weekly.  I find this exciting in that we will be getting whatever shows up that week and it is guaranteed harvested within 24hrs.  It will be fun to coordinate meals depending on the box contents and anything that doesn't work into a chew meal can go into the blender or juicer just as easy.
