Tips on Keeping an Organized and Healthy Fridge

I got tired of opening up my fridge doors, sighing, and closing them only to go order something next door. I mean don’t get me wrong, I always had food in there, but I always felt disappointed and uninterested in eating whatever was on the shelves. I needed a serious fridge-tox.

If you’ve been following me lately, you know that I’ve been super committed to sticking with my health goals, and eating out constantly is not conducive with clean eating. I needed a healthier relationship with my fridge, so I decided to get organized.

I loaded up on color coded containers and fresh fruits/veggies from the farmers market and put a system in place.

I keep an organized work space to stay productive and my fridge should be no different!

My idea was to ditch the plastic that my fruits and produce came in, and rather prep them in grab-n-go containers.

I’m very excited to open up my fridge now. It’s organized, pretty and has a purpose. There will be less waste each week since my meals are planned out and I can stay focused on eating clean.

TIPS ON HOW TO FRIDGE-TOX

STEP 1 – Throw it out

Clean out everything, grab some spray and give it a nice wipe down. It’s no longer acceptable to keep expired bottles of ranch in your fridge. To keep a healthy and happy fridge, it’s best to deep clean it once a month (pain in the ass but worth it)

Ask yourself, do you really need it? If not, toss it! The goal is to de-clutter and to keep healthy options.

Step 2 – Plan your week

Plan out your meals/snacks for the week and stick with it. I knew I wanted a healthy fridge so I went to the market and got lots of colorful fruits and veggies. My essentials are:

Step 3 – Don’t over-haul.

I’m guilty of this until now. Instead of buying 8 yogurts at a time I buy 4.  Plan for the week to reduce waste and overcrowding.

Step 4 – COMPARTMENTALIZE!

Prep your food and put them in color coded containers for easy access. I find it’s easier to grab a healthy snack when it’s visually appealing, so take your fruits out of the plastic bins they come in put them in nice containers.

Step 5 – Stick with water

I no longer keep sweet drinks in my fridge, so I made 2 pitchers of fruit infused water. It’s delicious, refreshing and EASY!

Step 6 – Keep lots of greens

Put in your salad / smoothie / or sautee. Keep lots of greens in your fridge always! I’ve been eating Swiss Chard frequently and I love it. It’s so delicious and healthy, I’ll post the recipe another day.

  • I’m back👋Spent much needed time offline to restructure my goals and focus on work and family. I feel mentally refreshed and more present in the moment which was one of the biggest things I was struggling with. I needed to take a step back and enjoy what was in front of me instead of always looking at my next move.
