This is a sentimental subject for me… I hope I do not tear up as I write this. When I see a well stocked fridge it brings me back to the days when I was a wee lad visiting my grandparents. I remember opening my grandma’s fridge and seeing all sorts of wonderful food inside and her welcoming me to whatever my heart desired.
Recently I just visited my sister who now lives several hours away from me and as I opened her fridge all of the feelings came flooding back. Yes, I have been there several times but this time was different. You see… just having a full fridge does not really constitute a “well-stocked” fridge. When I see a well stocked fridge there is a plethora of life giving, vibrant, vivacious foods! A well stocked fridge nourishes those it calls and allows those it calls to be generous and nourish others.
A well stocked fridge is like a happy man, when both are full there is a quiet hum. So here are some tips for a well stocked fridge:
There needs to be plenty of color! Reds, Greens, Purples, Whites, Oranges, Yellows… not many blacks.
There needs to be lots of living foods! You are a living being. Shocker, I know, but it’s true. So not too many cooked or processed foods. Living stuff.
There needs to be a nice balance of high quality food. Vegetables, fruit, dairy, sprouted whole grains, nuts (if they need refrigeration), grassfed/pastured meat and poultry, etc.
I like my women like I like my fridge, packed full of goodness! ‚Ä®
