What’s In the Fridge?

What's in the fridge?

A look inside the MyPrimalJourneyToHealth family refrigeratorLet’s play a little game called “What’s In the Fridge?” This will be nowhere nearly as impressive as the “Fridge Voyeur” profiles in Paleo Magazine, in which prominent people in the Paleo/primal community open up their refrigerators to give us common folk a view of how the experts live. But compared to what the family fridge has looked like for years, it’s a big change. (OK, partly just because I went victuals shopping today, but you gotta show it off when you can.)

Obviously, there’s still plenty of non-primal food still hanging out here (spray whipped cream, anyone?). But let’s focus, instead, on the few areas where I’m doing things right:

  1. Some beautifully butcher paper-wrapped grass fed ground beef and a couple of pounds of chicken, along with some pickled, well, pickles (plus carrots and peppers).
  2. Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and leaf lettuce.
  3. Three cartons of eggs (one from a local farm); some reasonably healthy cottage cheese and yogurt–yes, we’re still including dairy (including some great Dreaming Cow yogurt from grassfed cows that I discovered today at Earth Fare (and, bonus, on sale 2 for 1!)); and some Kerrygold (another bonus buy today: on sale for almost three-for-one) and other butter.
  4. Veggies and fruit.
  5. Cheeses and meats, including Applegate Farms uncured hot dogs (check out their Wienervention webpage and snag a handy coupon).
  6. Various and sundry condiments–some not-so-primal (like the aforementioned whipped cream), others a bit more so, like coconut aminos (great alternative to soy sauce) and Paleochef dressing.

So, there you have it: your look inside the MyPrimalJourneyToHealth family fridge or, as they’d say on MTV Cribs, “where the magic happens.”
