Anyone else really into seeing what people have in their fridge? I don’t know if that makes me creepy, but I always love seeing what people eat in their daily lives, not just all the yummy restaurant food + drink.
I honestly enjoy grocery shopping, it is relaxing to me. Some people strongly disagree but I think whatever type of shopper you are, it is important to make time to cook some meals! I usually shop at Trader Joes, Whole Foods and King Soopers depending on what I need. I usually hit TJ’s for good staple items but also their specialty dishes and spices that I can’t find elsewhere (everything but the bagel seasoning!!) Whole Foods I will visit for meats, fruit, rotisserie chickens and any obscure ingredients. King Soopers I save for generic brands and bigger bulk items like flour, sugar! I also love the Galbani string cheese and can only find that at King Soops!
My fridge never looks the same, but I always have some staple items that can easily be turned into great dishes!
Cauliflower Pizza Crust (If you cook it correctly, this stuff is the bomb.com! Cook the crust with just the sauce and cheese and cook other toppings separately so the crust doesn’t get soggy.)
Uncured Turkey Bacon (I almost always have this in my fridge. I like making a few slices for breakfast, or using it on a savory dish like a BLT)
TJ’s Steamed Chinese Soup Dumplings (A new favorite find! Pop them in the microwave and you have a yummy steamed dumpling!)
Brussels/Other Roasting Veggies (I always do a big pan of roasted veggies to have for the week, slice em, oil em and pop them in the oven!)
Butternut Squash Soup/Other TJ’s soups (I am a soup fiend so having delicious soups ready to go are always an easy meal option)
Fage 0% Greek Yogurt (Another staple, I eat this both when I am craving sweet but also as a savory topping. If I want it for sweet purposes I usually but a drop of jam and some ezekiel almond granola on top. I also use it often as a savory topping in place of sour cream.
Ezekial Bread (Major staple, basically eat this everyday for breakfast with hummus, a boiled egg and EBTB Seasoning)
Eggs (always hardboil a batch for the week, and always have a ton not boiled for baking!)
One Hope Hummus (Hands down my favorite hummus, it is a local CO brand. I find it at WF or King Soopers and it is always on my toast!)
Quinoa + Brown rice (A good base for any dish)
Greens: Arugula or Mixed Greens or Butter Lettuce (Sometimes you just gotta eat some greens!)
Applegate Chicken Sausage (I don’t LOVE cooking chicken at home, even if it’s done correctly I just don’t really enjoy dealing with it, so chicken sausage is an easy quick way to still get some protein!)
For all you fridge stalkers, hope you enjoyed this!
