This post seems hilariously silly when thinking about it…my boyfriend couldn’t believe I was *actually* taking pictures of the inside of our fridge on Sunday, and was even more perplexed when the annoyance of the open door buzzer kept going off for about 20 minutes straight. Whoops. In all honesty, I freaking love when other people post their shopping lists or their personal inside my fridge pictures. I don’t know what it is — maybe it’s sort of like a secret look into their life in a really random way? Who knows, maybe I’m a weirdo and the only one into these things, but here it is! A
look into my life, I mean, my fridge.
I usually shop at Whole Foods on Sundays or Mondays, and will add a stop at Trader Joe’s 1-2 times a month. I’ll also go to the Sunday farmers market on Clement Street or Fort Mason when I’m around. I have specific things I like at each store, but primarily shop Whole Foods since our diet consists of mainly fresh foods, and I personally think WF is better in that department. Also chocolate and wine, can’t forget those two!
Let’s start from the top!
Siggi’s Icelandic Yogurt – We live off this and go through 8-10/week! I love the chocolate flavored one as dessert, too! Whole Foods
Kombucha – I like all types of brands, but mainly focus on whatever has the lowest sugar count. Whole foods or Trader Joe’s
Organic Berries – I can eat a carton in one sitting. 🙂 Whole Foods (preferably)
Oats – I keep them in the fridge to preserve freshness. Trader Joe’s
MALK Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk – I drink this in my coffee and smoothies. All almond milks at TJ’s have added gums or sugars, yuck! Whole Foods
Pressed Juicery Green Juice’s & Almond Milk – I’m a Pressed member, which gets you $5 juices, and they usually run specials with free juices or wellness shots. I like to stop here on Sunday mornings to stock up on a few green juices for the week. The almond milk is a great breakfast replacement when I’m in a rush. Pressed Juice – Union St., SF (many US locations & online)
La Ferme Julien Rosé – Best $5.99 wine, ever. Trader Joe’s
BEER! & Hard Cider – We usually keep a 6-pack around for park days or when friends pop over. I took this photo on Super Bowl Sunday, so there was more than usual! WF’s or TJ’s
San Pellegrino – I drink this with lime on the weekdays instead of having a glass of wine. Trader Joe’s
Veggie sticks – I usually buy some combination of carrots/cucumbers/snap peas and transfer into small containers for easy healthy snacking. Whole Foods
Fresh Guacamole & Pico de Gallo – Buy these weekly for easy burrito bowls, avocado toast, and to top on eggs or rice. Whole Foods
Hummus Guy Hummus – San Francisco based company, best hummus with zero added junk. I like the avocado cilantro flavor. Whole Foods or local bay area farmers market
Organic Rotisserie Chicken – I love having this on hand for quick dinners + a green side, Julia’s buffalo chicken, or adding on salads for lunch when I work from home. Whole Foods
Mini Sweet Bell Peppers – Great for adding to dinners or on top of TJ’s cauliflower pizza! Whole Foods
Organic Girl Romaine Heads – These are bit more expensive than other brands, but they come pre-washed and I find that washing these makes them super soggy. I fill them with rotisserie chicken or taco seasoned ground turkey for easy dinners that replace a tortilla. Whole Foods
Cheese! – I’m from Vermont, so obviously always have sharp cheddar Cabot Cheese. Also keep parmesan and mixed shredded cheese on hand.
Side Door #1
CHOCOLATE – I can’t sleep without a bite of chocolate. We always keep Chocolove bars on hand (Whole Foods), along with other random one’s I’ve gotten as gifts, or my mom sends us. 🙂
Eggs – Organic only. TJ’s or WF’s
Noteworthy Condiments – Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (TJ’s or Whole Foods), Rao’s Red Sauce (Whole Foods), Coconut Aminos (healthy soy sauce replacement, Trader Joe’s), Minced Garlic (Trader Joe’s), Vermont Maple Syrup (Bought in VT)
Greens – Arugula (x2), Spinach (x2), Green Beans, Broccoli, Shaved Brussel Sprouts. Used for dinners, salads, buddha bowls, and smoothies. Whole Foods
Vegetable Rice Medley – Better than riced cauliflower! Can freeze also. Trader Joe’s
Stone Fruit – Apples, lemons/limes, oranges, ginger, asian pears. Whole Foods
Side Door #2
Assorted Condiments – Again pretty self explanatory. I’ve been recently obsessed with Cholula (Whole Foods), Thai Red Curry Paste for asian recipes (Whole Foods), buffalo sauce for literally everything (Whole Foods), and I absolutely hate mayo, so no idea why thats there!
Granola – I’m a granola feign! I usually stock up at the farmers market on Clement Street, or buy my sweet Aunt’s amazing granola, from her Swedish baking company, Something Swede-ish (can find her at most South Bay farmers markets!) I try to buy whatever flavor has the least amount of sugar, and healthy oils, like coconut oil.
Nut Butters – Also a total staple. I use these in healthy muffin recipes, on yogurt, oatmeal, or on top of smoothies.
Misc. Food – I don’t keep much in here, since we tend to reach for the fresh food, but I like to keep a few items for unplanned dinners. Cauliflower Crust Pizza, Cauliflower Gnocchi, Jasmine & Brown Rice bags, Thai Veggie Gyoza’s. Trader Joe’s Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Bread, and Amy’s Veggie Burgers. Whole Foods
Fruit – I make multiple smoothies a week! Berries, mango, spinach, and bananas! Trader Joe’s
Coffee – We keep our coffee in the freezer, anyone know if it’s a myth that it keeps it fresh for longer?!
