A Clean Refrigerator Brings Healthy Meals
Does it work? It has helped me! And now I will show you how a clean refrigerator can help you eat healthier.
Less food waste has been a great benefit. Eliminating food waste saves money. Usually, fresh fruits and veggies tend to end up in the trash a few weeks later. We forget what we have in the fridge. Consequently, food gets lost behind a host of leftovers that are way past their prime. Sometimes our ambition gets the best of us. Therefore, we end up with ingredients we aren’t familiar with and have no clue how to use in a recipe. Simple is best.
Of course, there are times for trying new recipes. Don’t use the middle of the week to be ambitious in the kitchen. Meals can be healthy and delicious, with just a few ingredients. Plan meals that use some of the same food choices to make things easier. Not to mention all of the money you will save.
Meal prep will go further. And not only that, but it also helps your ingredients get used up. Food will no longer disappear in the dark corners of the fridge. In short, clean refrigerator can help you eat healthier!
Organize for a Clean Refrigerator
My mind is always thinking ahead. I make plans for what all of the small amounts of leftovers can become.
Diced tomatoes can put into omelets.
Spiral ham can be used in salad and omelets or on sandwiches.
Ham hock makes a delicious pot of pinto beans.
Pinto beans can make tasty refried beans. Another great option is bean burritos.
Cooked veggies are perfect in stew or soup.
Boiled eggs are great for deviled eggs. They are also really yummy in tuna or chicken salad.
Baked or grilled chicken makes great enchiladas, burritos, burrito bowls, chicken salad, and more.
Find a way to reinvent the food in your fridge. It cuts down on waste and allows you to cook less. Save time by capitalizing on the time you have already spent in the kitchen. Ingredients can stretch into several different meals. Read more about that here.
