Day 23 going on day 1,237 prompt: “Clean out your fridge or closet in written form. What’s in there? How does it reflect your personality?”
I LOVE this prompt!! Probably because I get to talk about what’s in my fridge. If you didn’t know, I’m a huge foodie. I spend hours in Whole Foods (on the rare occasion I go), try to eat clean and rarely eat take-out (I’m always cooking in my kitchen).
I actually have a lot going on in my refrigerator right now despite my goals of clearing it out before heading to Baltimore for my mini Christmas vacation. I went to Trader Joe’s on Saturday and bought only food that I thought I would need for the following five days. Turns out I may have bought too much and will be traveling with some of it to my parents.
Anyway, back to my refrigerator! I will organize by shelf:
-One strawberry Greek yogurt from TJ’s
-Applesauce (original, no sugar-added)
-Carton of egg whites
-Cottage cheese (really old and should probably be thrown away)
-Black bean and chickpea hummus (homemade on Sunday night)
-Half an avocado
Middle Shelf (including cheese drawer):
-Goat cheese, provolone cheese and Mexican cheese blend (that should probably get thrown out too)
-Chicken dogs from TJ’s- organic, great source of protein and low-calorie
-Cheap beer from TJ’s (I don’t drink it… I bought it when I had people over, so it’s leftover from that)
-Half a head of cauliflower
-Leftover roasted veggies from an event (that’s a few weeks old and should get thrown out too)
-Wilted kale (needs to be tossed)
-Bags of spinach and salad
-Insulin (in the butter compartment)
-Cooling eye mask (also in the butter compartment)
-Various half opened white wines
-Various condiments that I don’t use, with the exception of the miso
So, that’s my fridge. I might have more interesting things in my cabinets, but I won’t go there! Let’s just say the newest additions to my cabinet include a new jar of coconut oil, some castor oil and tea tree essential oil along with powdered peanut butter and popcorn.
What does all that say about me? I guess looking at it, it says that I’m pretty health conscious. I don’t eat a lot of take-out so therefore my refrigerator isn’t cluttered with it. I apparently don’t drink beer or finish bottles of wine (it’s what happens when you try to cut back on alcohol and live alone). I also have a lot of healthy foods, which is pretty typical for me. I try to always keep certain staples in there including brussel sprouts (definitely a staple for me), spinach, protein of some sort, and hummus.
Pictures to come!!
