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.

  • Happy Mother’s day and Sunday friends. In case you need to be reminded, you are enough and you are appreciated! What a beautiful time to be a woman. Don’t underestimate yourself, ever. You are stronger, bolder, smarter and more capable than you may realize. Cheers to females uplifting and inspiring others, the world is a better place because of you.

Sooo I crossed off 2 major items on my list and it feels like a boulder has been lifted off of my shoulders. Office makeover complete✔️and wedding venue locked down✔️ (I am so over the moon to reveal the details on this >> It’s like the boho gods curated THE most perfect location I didn’t even know existed🧚🏼‍♀️) and what perfect timing too, I was about to throw in the towel out of frustration. It seems like every venue is an over-priced catering hall with the same factory style wedding. Can’t wait to share the planning with you guys!

OH and how fun is my office chair?! I wasn’t sure about it at first but I’m obsessssed. I’ll be sharing all of the details on my blog, I didn’t get a chance to post last night but it should be up by Monday🌛🌜
  • It’s OFFICE REVEAL day! I’m so happy I could cry. Here’s one of my favorite parts of the room, my zen little nook🌱

When designing this space it was important for me to have a creative corner where I can think/read/write sans distraction. I’ve been finding it hard lately to be alone in my own thoughts because of all the stimulation and instant gratification we have right at our fingertips. Gone are the days we’re forced to stare at a wall when we’re bored🤣
▫️
My goal is to implement more time to think completely unplugged and unfiltered with just a notebook and a pen - and maybe some hot lemon water. Just like the gym, client meetings and other non-negotiables, I’m challenging myself to block out 1 hour once a week to just think. 🧘🏼‍♀️✨
Anyone have any tips/advice for meditating?

  • I get a lot of questions about what the name of my blog means so I figured I’d give you a quick rundown.

5 years ago me and one of my good friends Christina (major boss babe- give her a follow @sunkissedbychris) started a fashion blog for fun. When thinking of names we tossed up the idea of “grace and vanity” but I made a typo and for some reason we liked it. That’s when @stylebygraveandvanity was born.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward to now I still have the same name but there’s different meaning attached to it. A synonym for grave means “having a matter of importance as a topic” and I think that describes 1/2 of my blog. I talk about real shit i.e. finance, career, and self improvement. The other half of my blog is keeping up with trends and fashion and all things in between. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So with that being said, if you are not subscribed to my blog go do so now because you’re not going to want to miss what’s coming! That’s not just an open invitation for women- there’s something for everyone. I’m devoted to creating valuable content that’s not just girly and empty bs.
