What’s in YOUR fridge?

I always find it interesting to see what people have in their refrigerator; I believe it says something about them. Right? You can tell a lot about a person by their groceries.

In fact there are websites like fridgewatcher.com where people send in photos of their fridge contents for review with the belief that “every fridge tells a story”.

Well, being a dietitian, you better believe there is interest in what food I eat/buy. Unless I’m with fellow dietitians or my family, I always feel like there are extra eyes on what I order at restaurants, buy at the store, or cook at home. But again, to reiterate my nutrition philosophy: I am not the food police. I don’t take away foods from people or force feed anyone. I make suggestions and give advice. I believe people should eat whatever food their body wants, but should make educated, moderate and balanced food choices.

With that being said, here’s a look at my refrigerator:

Yes, it’s really full right now.

Follow along for a little tour:

The Door:

  • Eggland’s Best Eggs (although I can’t wait to try some local farmer’s market eggs!)
  • My Brita pitcher of water (which I swear I fill up multiple times daily… maybe it’s worth investing in the larger size??)
  • Organic Milk (because it’s ultra pasteurized to last longer, and I like to support organic farming practices when I can)
  • A multitude of condiments – salad dressings, coffee creamers, butter, and sauces of all types – soy and barbecue included

The Main Section: (from top, down)

  • Top shelf: Gatorade, a bag of sliced squash/zucchini for tomorrow’s stir-fry, a container of leftover pasta, and a lazy-susan that contains all my almond/peanut butters and jams/jellies/preserves
  • Next Shelf: my iced coffee, strawberries, salsa, hot sauce (deer repellant!), and random condiments I don’t eat (left by family members)
  • Next: Tofu, leftover spaghetti sauce, tupperware containers of diced pineapple and leftover hummus. In the back I can see margarine, tubes of garlic paste and tomato paste, and some thawed pie crust (although.. should that still be there? hmm… better check)
  • Bottom Shelf: Spinach, leftover pasta salad

Vegetable Drawer:

  • Honestly, right now it’s full of my squash and zucchini. I try to take a basket into work every couple weeks to get rid of the old and make room of the new
  • Underneath I think there is some vintage celery, bagged carrots, and apples

Meat Drawer:

  • Remember, I am vegetarian, so this is my “cheese drawer”
  • String cheese, extra-sharp cheddar, cream cheese, parmesan
  • Random bag of homeless clementines

And that concludes our tour! Hope you enjoyed. I’m sure I shocked you with how much food I have in this fridge for one person. But I rarely eat out, unless I’m having guests, and I like to eat leftovers :)

No tour of the freezer at this time. It is so completely jam-packed that the photos wouldn’t even show anything worthwhile.

  1. random condiments left by me could be moved to the garage fridge, where they will later explode.
