!Hola Chicas! (and chicos if there are any dudes out there!!)
How has the start of your week been? The weekend was awfully busy for me and I had the best intentions of posting , but sadly SAT prep consumed most of my days The big day is this Saturday….wish me luck!
Today, I thought I’d share with you all a look inside muh fridge! I have seen tons of other bloggers feature their cabinets, groceries, purses, and closets and I’ve always enjoyed those posts….so I thought it would be fun to share with you all the typical stuff you would find in the Healthy Helper’s refrigerator!
We recently upgraded to a HUGH JASS refrigerator which was very exciting for me….because I can fit more delicious food of course!
SO now, I invite you….take a look inside.
On the top shelf you would find:
- big tub o’ greens, yogurt (plain greek and regular), eggs, soy milk (for my mamas coffeeee), and containers of my various baked goods (right now I have scuffins and banana bread for snackin’)
- Condiments (mustard is a must!), nut butters ( I think I have about 6 jars hiding back there right now…I am waaay to big of an impulse shopper :/), flavored yogurts (brand of the week=Chobani), skim milk, and my favorite drink powder….original Amazing Grass!
- most commonly used veggies (like carrots and brocolli), leftovers of any kind (we have turkey chili and tomato-butternut squash soup at the moment)
Next we have a full to the brim fruit drawer (apples have another home because they simply do not fit lol!):
We also have a second veggie drawer that holds all of our sandwich and cooking veggies like spinach, kale, lettuce, pepper, and zuchinni!
AND of course, no stocked fridge would be complete without a JUMBO container of……HUMUS!
Two pounds worth for this family!
We actually have a whole other refrigerator in our basement to hold the over flow from this one and we have storage areas for our non perishables, so this peek inside definitely didn’t cover all of our food!
So, what are some of the staples in your refrigerator?
Check out my dinner from tonight….it was a good one for sure!
First I roasted up a Japanese Yam (these are the kind I had in China and this one was just as delicious as I remembered!), using my new method.
Then I paired it with a huge salad monster topped with black beans, red onion, carrots, a few plops of my tomato-butternut squash soup, and some humus-tomato dressing! It was fabulous.
Do you like hot toppers on salad? I like putting warm, thick soups (like my tomato b-nut) on salads….it adds some variety and makes a pretty good dressing too!
After dinner for a little sweet snack I had a big bowl of organic frozen blueberries (the were so SWEET for not being in season!!!!) topped with a few handfuls of raisins, a tablespoon of carob powder, and a cup of milk. It was such a good combo…the chew from the raisins mixed with the cold from the blueberries was a great combo and I loved how the milk became like a chocolate milk from the carob!
I am definitely having this one again! Its really been a great start to the week….I won my first blog giveaway ever (thanks Paije!), so that made it extra fantastic! I hope yours was just as great!
Later today, stay tuned for my tomato-b-nut soup recipe!
