What's Inside Our Fridge

Look, we get it, this eating at home business can be a lot to take on. Let’s be real, sometimes it’s a whole lot easier to let someone else to the hardwork and heavy lifting for you. Sometimes the pizza delivery guy can double as your superhero and the Chick-Fil-A drive through can save the day! Cooking at home and meal planning and prepping and grocery shopping can get real old real fast--even for us--and we aren’t even dealing with husbands and kids who can sometimes be super picky and crazy critical!

But the hard truth that we all have to face is that we cannot live off of pizza and fast food chicken. We know that it’s just not good for our tummies or our wallets in the long run. So how can we do this? How can we take on this huge home cooking challenge without feeling extremely stressed and overwhelmed? I mean I don’t know about you, but I’m not looking to roast a chicken and stuff a bunch of peppers every day. I just don’t have time for that.

We’re going to dive into this a bit this week and we’re going to start somewhere super simple. We’re going to start with the basics. When the planning and prepping feels like too much and too great a task to take on--Today we’re going to share with you our standard stock up at the grocery store. What are the things that we always have on hand, our go-to's, our staples. These are the things that we know we can always work with. It looks different for me and D and it’s going to look different for all of you. It may take a bit of time to experiment and see what the family favorites are. But once you figure that out, this can be really simple and routine!

Here are the things I keep stocked in the fridge:


Natural Peanut Butter


(Sometimes I get Atkins breakfast bars, or I get my favorite snack bars from Aldi's.)


Almond flour

Mama Lupe's low carb tortillas

Ground beef 

Rotisserie Chicken



French-style green beans

Philadelphia cream cheese
