Great. Anything in the pantry?

For comparisons sake, I'd also like to see the refrigerator of someone who is married and has two or three kids (like myself). Makes it a little more difficult.

well I always have carrots, humus, yoghurt in the fridge .. at the moment it being summer would have canned beetroot & corn as well .

How about organic organ meats like liver and heart. They are high in concentrated minerals, vitamin d, great source of bioavailable iron and protien rich.

I used olives, capers, anchovies, curry pastes, ginger and so on as the basis for a lot of my meals.

A few Kalamata olives or green olives chopped up roughly go a long way in the flavour game.

Coconut cream is another one I use a fair bit. High in fat, but I cater for it, and it's MCTs so all good. It's a great base with the curry pastes.

I love this!
I too have carrots and hummus. Other additions include: low-fat cottage cheese, home-made low-fat tzatziki, grated parm, raspberries, baby bok choy, an antibiotic free lean pork chop.

I will speak up for those who think being married and having a kid changes fridge is pretty much stocked the same!

Tyler actually went through our fridge a couple months ago - pulling it all out - and yes the Pantry too - for all to see.

I think it is even MORE important to keep your fridge (pantry) stocked full of good stuff when you have kids.

Another mother of two here! We've got hummus, whole wheat tortillas, flax seed meal, hard boiled eggs, cranberries, sugar-free maple syrup, and of course, Organic Ketchup for the Kiddos.

In my fridge that you haven't mentioned: Hummus (I especially like Trader Joe's eggplant hummus), low-fat cottage cheese, yogurt, cucumbers, pears, satsuma tangerines, lemons, various raw nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans), soy milk, tofu, goat cheese, organic sliced turkey breast, collard leaves (for making wraps with the turkey slices, mustard, hummus, and whatever else I think of), alfalfa sprouts. I like variety!

when you say organic milk, do you mean unpasteurised, unhomogenised milk? that's what's been in my fridge lately, and believe it or not, i think it's actually helping me to lose weight. it's so complete nutritionally and high in healthy fat that when i have one or two glasses a day (like with my breakfast and so on) it keeps me feeling full and satisfied for hours and i don't even think about food. how about that! and the taste is so much richer and creamier that i really enjoy drinking it!
