What does my refrigerator say about me? *edit again - VERY pic heavy*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

The contents, not the magnets, lol.

Top shelf, left to right: Miso, fish oil capsules, almond butter, white truffle oil, vinegar dressing I never use, two plain goat milk yogurts, two cartons of cage-free large brown eggs.

Middle shelf, left to right: mayonnaise (you can't see it, really), ground elk meat, full fat cottage cheese, organic carrots, organic cauliflower, organic spinach.

Bottom: 4 gallons of water.

Nothing is in the bin.

In the door there are condiments and 0 cal. sobe lifewater (sweetened with stevia).

This is what my fridge looks like on an average day.


Ok, so, I should mention that this isn't all the food in my house.

In my pantry I have tofu, quinoa, coconut oil, canned soup and packaged tuna.

In the freezer I have some different kinds of frozen fish and frozen berries (forgot to get chicken at the store :/)

On the counter I have about 20 apples, 4 pears, 2 oranges and bunch of bananas. My son and I are apple addicts lol

I think that's about all I have... plus little things like olive oil and vitamin C packets n stuff...


Because I'm even more bored than I thought! LOL

Here is my pantry:

The tofu is on the left, the two little green and white containters. There's also dried split green peas, molasses, gluten free thai peanut sauce, quinoa, spices, teff, organic pastry flour, oatmeal, sea salt, dried kelp, etc. and the other things I mentioned before.


Here is my counter:

Those are dietary supplements, garlic, raw honey, then some garlic sesame seeds, and the large containers are protein powders.


Freezer:


I have a job, and I get no child support or public assistance, fyi.


There are way more responses than I thought, so I figured I'd add a couple pictures of what dinners look like at my house, since everyone thinks I must eat like a bird with no yum-factor lol. Yes, I take pictures of my food sometimes, I'm a weirdo all around :D

Chicken, onion, zucchini, corn, cooked with coconut oil, garlic and salsa. So easy and soooo good. I took this picture the first time I made it for my husband.

3 bean salad with red quinoa on spinach.


Curry chicken with red bell peppers and kale salad 


I know the salmon doesn't look very good, but it really was. 

Honey dijon salmon with asparagus and brussell sprouts. 


 

Broccoli pancakes with peanut sauce

Crockpot potato soup


Rice and sausage bell pepper "nests"


Egg and avocado salad on slices of fried tofu

You are health conscious, but you are missing fresh fruits and vegetables.

You eat out alot

I eat out about twice a week.

I do tend to relax how I eat when I go out, but I also try to lean towards healthier options that are still yummy, like mediterranean cuisine, for example.

That you dont have kids

I have a toddler who simply doesn't eat sugar.

That seems to blow people's minds. 

He eats what I eat, and I don't allow unhealthy foods into my home.

I don't make it a big ugly thing when he's offered sweets in public, but with me he only eats natural, nutritious foods.

He seems to like junk food in a very moderate way. He likes it, naturally, but he doesn't go nuts for it.

Hmmm...

Carrots, cauliflower and spinach.

It tells me that if I came over to your house to cook, we would be having roasted cauliflower seasoned with miso, elk patties with carrots and spinach (maybe with some kind of yogurt dressing, depending on what you have in your pantry, and a cottage cheese fritata.  Actually sounds pretty yummy.

I went shopping today.

This is freshly bought food.

I also updated the post to explain that this isn't all I have...

Yes, there is a lot of fantastic stuff you can make with the food I have in my house.

I find that a lot of women over-stock their homes and you really don't need to, imo.
