Sonia from Natural New Age Mum thought it would be interesting to see what’s in a few of our ‘natural new age’ fridges. My hippy fridge is most often packed to the rafter with hippy goodness so here it is… for anyone who’s curiosity is piqued by such things: I give you my fridge!
- You’ve most probably heard me go on about stock now before. I live what I teach I tell you, as you can see by my dated jar stash in the fridge with chicken and fish stocks on the go at the moment! Read about stock here.
- Coconut cream – Couldn’t get my AYAM coconut cream the other day so settled on the best tasting BPA free one that has the least amount of Guar gum and that’s the spiral brand.
- A chicken, veggie and cauli / potato pie that my hubby made – a little double up of a main meal so he could take it to work!
- A few toasted hazelnuts covered in raw chocolate in a little white dish
- A 4 My Earth covered bowl – you must check out her covers and ditch the glad wrap from your life! Nasty stuff for the environment indeed!
- My favourite cultured veg down there, Kitsa’s Kitchen. Yummy prima donna flavour!
- Apple compote freshly made – simple compote recipe in my book available on Amazon if you fancy downloading for just $2.99
- Berry chia pudding in a jar – recipe in my new book!
- A home batch of Kim chi
- A few random pickles and left over pan juices that I pop in jars to get the next onions browning in for a great base flavour for the next dish.
- Organic Ghee
- My coffee body scrub stash. Recipe for that one is here.
- Pasture perfect Bacon
- Some lamb steaks for crumbing with dukkah
- An open tin of sardines in olive oil – love them on a buckwheat cracker with loads of fresh lemon juice for breakky every now and then.
- A couple of tubs of hippy cream (raw) for making my own butter
- My herb tray – Always packed with at least 4 fresh herbs, and covered with a damp tea towel for crisy freshness to last the week.
- Beef delivery bag – Beef bones and a scotch fillet roast from Alma Beef. Amazing quality, grass fed and finished.
- Cheap juicing carrots that I ignore the juicing part and cook with or eat raw as sticks – 2kg $3.99 and organic. No brainer!
- Coconut and buckwheat flours
- Veggies – not too many as I buy these fresh from various local markets a couple of times a week.
What’s awesome about a “Real Food” fridge is the lack of brands and food like products packed with additives. My fridge 6 years ago would have had hundreds of additives and additional chemicals in there. Minimising plastic is still a work in progress but each month I get better at that.
My fridge shelves could do with a good scrub but all in all, I love our fridge and the real food that fills it up each week!
Real Food. Happy Bodies.
