As it was grocery shopping day today, I thought it would be the perfect time to show you guys what I normally keep in my fridge.
Water – bottled water takes up the entire top shelf of my fridge. My partner and I drink a lot of water, so I make sure our fridge is always fully stocked.
Almond milk – almond milk is a staple in my fridge as I use it in my smoothie bowls for breakfast each morning.
Cow’s milk – this is something that we do not often buy anymore due to me watching heaps of documentaries and YouTube videos about how horrible the dairy industry is. But I needed it for a recipe that I am making this week so I just bought a small carton.
– These are all staples in my fridge as I use them to top my smoothie bowls.
Lemons – I keep these cut up in a container ready for my morning lemon water
I only buy my meat from local independent butchers where I know the meat is grass-fed, raised humanely, chemical and hormone free and locally grown. I don’t eat as much meat as I used to as I am slowly trying to cut it out of my diet.
This week the meat in my fridge is-
Coconut yoghurt – technically this isn’t a dairy item as it is made from coconut milk, not cow’s milk. I find the coconut flavour very strong and can’t eat it by itself, so I just use it in my smoothies.
Soy yoghurt – this is also a dairy free yoghurt. I only bought it today for the first time, so I have not tasted it yet. Hopefully it tastes good!
Organic vanilla bean yoghurt – This is my partners favourite yoghurt. I too enjoy it, but I try to stick to dairy free yoghurt now.
Cheese – I do not eat a lot of cheese anymore, but my partner loves it so I always have some slices in the fridge.
Nuttelex – technically not a dairy item either, but I thought I would include it in this section anyway as it is kind of similar.
And everything else…
Eggs – I freaking love eggs! I have chickens so I am lucky to have fresh, free-range eggs everyday.
Mayonnaise – not an item I use a lot, but it is handy to have for certain recipes.
Garlic – sometimes I am too lazy to chop fresh garlic so I like to have some crushed garlic in a jar on hand.
Lemongrass – I am also too lazy to chop lemongrass, so having it in a tube is super handy!
Red curry paste
Green curry paste
Kaffir lime leaves
And that’s it! These aren’t the items I always keep in my fridge. It changes each week depending on what we are eating for that week.
I did not take a photo of my freezer as it does no matter how much I try to organise it, it still never looks good. But it basically just includes a heap of frozen fruit, vegetables, ice-cream and a small amount of meat.
I recently purchased these fridge containers from Kmart, so cheap and they make my fridge look super neat and organised!
