I always love it when you read about what athletes/celebrities/people on the Biggest Loser keep in their fridges. It is always a bunch of healthy crap, which is great, but sometimes I find myself wondering – where is the Cool Whip? What about the tubs of cookie dough you got from your child’s fundraiser? Doesn’t anybody eat Velveeta anymore (I think Velveeta is perfect for two things: home made mac ‘n cheese and queso dip – the kind with Rotel canned tomatoes).
Anyway, here are ten things you can find in my fridge on any given day. Most of it actually is healthy, but if you looked in my pantry it might be a different story:
- Wine. Chardonnay. In the big bottle. I usually buy Woodbridge because it is cheap ($9.99) and doesn’t taste a thing like urine.
- Spinach. The big bin. Organic. Although there is no guarantee you won’t get salmonella from it.
- Half ‘n Half. IMHO, coffee is not worth drinking without several tablespoons of this stuff. I like a strong cup of French Roast with tons of H ‘n H.
- Almond Butter. My favorite breakfast sandwich are two Kashi waffles toasted with almond butter and apricot jelly. Perfection.
- X2 Performance. These are the little red bottles at the top. I drink one before every workout of 1+ hours. It’s supposed to increase energy, improve performance and enhance recovery. Maybe it’s a placebo, but I swear it works (more info HERE).
- Salsa. I use this in everything from eggs to casseroles to toppings for salad, burritos, etc.
- Parmesan cheese. We buy the big ones from Costco. Every night we have popcorn with melted butter and lots of parmesan cheese. It is the SUAR family way.
- Greek yogurt. I’m not a huge yogurt person, but I like it in my smoothies and mixed with granola and fruit.
- Avocados. Don’t even get me started. I eat at least 1/2 an avocado per day. I put them on salads, in eggs and sometimes I just eat them out of the skin with a spoon. When we were in California they actually cost 10 for $1.00. That is 10 cents an avocado and I nearly freaking lost my mind. I could probably afford to live in CA just because of the cost of avocados (they average $1-$1.50 per piece here).
- Blueberries. I buy the big huge thing of them and grab handfuls throughout the day. I also love them on cereal, in oatmeal and in smoothies.
There you have it, but what I really want to know is – what is in your fridge? Give me three things.
I’m off to watch the Bachelorette. I am guessing she picks no one unless Brooks comes back, but even then she should tell him NO WAY because he already said he wasn’t into her.
BTW, my back is SO SO much better. Taking four rest days, icing, doing exercises and taking Aleve made all the difference.
Don’t forget to tell me three things.
