What's In Your Refrigerator?

We've all seen that scene in a movie or TV show where a house-guest goes snooping through the medicine cabinet. Maybe you've even recreated that scene in real life. I'm pretty sure that the medicine cabinet snoop is way more interesting in the movies than it is in real life. To me what's in someone's refrigerator is way more interesting than what's in their medicine cabinet. In fact, you can probably guess what's in someone's medicine cabinet based on what someone has in their refrigerator. So, I thought I'd let you all have a peek into what's in my refrigerator. Below is a list of the most commonly found items in my pantry, fridge, and freezer.

The Pantry

  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Coconut milk
  • Raisins
  • Pecans
  • Olive Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper corns
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Onions
  • Garlic

  • A spice basket overflowing with all kinds of spices

The Refrigerator

  • Lemons
  • Pickles
  • Lard (homemade)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Dijon mustard
  • Grade B maple syrup
  • Bone broth
  • Chicken

The Freezer

  • Whole chicken

  • Extra butter

I'm sure there are some things 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?
