healthy kitchen: sharing all of my fridge staples!

Fridge space is sacred around here.

Our refrigerator is packed to the brim at all times. I am one of those weirdos who actually get anxiety when there isn’t enough food on hand (especially when it’s one of my favorite products). I am also one of those odd ones who keeps everything in the fridge. Even things that aren’t supposed to be in there, I add (like granolas for extra crunchiness).

I don’t organize our fridge in any special way. And it is by no means even that organized. It is REAL and what works for us. I know there are some people who say to store meat on bottom, veggies on top, or whatever it is supposed to be. I personally get overwhelmed following that and focus on fitting everything where it makes sense to me, and of course where it fits best to maximize space.

Today I am walking you guys through my absolute staples in our fridge. What we have on hand 99% of the time and staples that I cannot live without. A question I get most often is “where do you grocery shop?”. It is a mix of online ordering and grocery stores (nothing fancy!). I find Trader Joe’s has great prices and good veggies but their apple selection stinks! I like Whole Foods for my apples and anything else I cannot find at Trader Joe’s. I also go to a small grocery store in Hoboken called Basic Foods, which has amazing prices.

Let’s do this. Let me know if you have any questions and HAPPY EATING!healthy kitchen: sharing all of my fridge staples!healthy kitchen: sharing all of my fridge staples!
