I’m pretty confident that we’ve all seen that scene in a movie or on TV where someone goes snooping through someone else’s medicine cabinet. Perhaps you’ve even done some real life snooping in someone’s cabinet. I’m betting thought that the medicine cabinet snoop is way more interesting in the movies than in reality. I don’t know about you, but I think that what’s in someone’s refrigerator is way more interesting than what’s in their medicine cabinet.
As a matter of fact, you can probably even guess what’s in someone’s medicine cabinet based on what they have in their refrigerator. So, to keep things interesting around here, I thought I’d let all of you have a peek into my refrigerator. Below is a list of the items I usually have on hand in my pantry, fridge, and freezer.
- Apple cider vinegar
- Coconut milk
- Olive Oil
- Coconut Oil
- Kosher salt
- Pepper corns
- Red pepper flakes
- Honey (raw)
- Organic tomatoes
- Basmati rice
- Extra light olive oil
- A spice basket overflowing with all kinds of spices
- Lard (homemade)
- Parmesan cheese
- Dijon mustard
- Grade B maple syrup
- Bone broth
- Sweet peppers
- Greens (kale, spinach, romaine)
- Bacon (no preservatives)
- Whole chicken
- Meals from when I bulk cooking
- Extra butter
- Frozen herbs
- Chicken carcasses for making bone broth
- Lemon slices (for water or tea)
- Cucumber slices (for water)
- Leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving
I’m sure there are some items that I forgot… I pretty much did this list from my couch rather than sitting in the kitchen taking an actual inventory, But I think you get the idea. I rarely buy overly processed items, and most of the processed items I buy are still only one ingredient.
I’m meticulous about reading ingredient labels. Anything that I don’t know what it is or I do but it doesn’t belong in what I’m buying (like sugar in raisins), I don’t buy that item. It’s always possible to find something with healthy, whole ingredients.
Hopefully this list will give you some healthy ideas of what to buy next time you’re at the store.
What’s in your fridge? Do you have staples that you buy over and over?
