Interesting .... what's healthy food you've got in your fridge?

Yogurts, Skimmed milk and my sliced turkey.

Organic vanilla yogurt, organic jalapeno hummus, sundried tomato and basil hummus, lettuce, radishes, broccoli, carrots, sugar snap peas, ground turkey, whole grain bread, etc.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

I have some veggies and I think some milk. I have three fridges so I have a lot of stuff in them, but I do not know how much of it is healthy. One fridge is mostly for drinks, so nothing healthy in there. Just soda and other stuff. I have lots of cheese, does that count as healthy?

I'll start from the bottom and work my way up. All kinds of low fat shredded cheeses, whole wheat tortillas, 1/2 head of cabbage, lettuce, gigantic bottle of ice water, various fat free salad dressings, diced tomatoes, diced onions, home made salsa, fat free sour cream, 2% cottage cheese. I think that's it for the healthy stuff.
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

Having just cleaned out my fridge it seems like there's nothing left. But there is still some lowfat yogurt, 1% milk, pickled garlic (very good for the immune system), apples, oranges, and boneless skinless chicken breasts defrosting for dinner tomorrow night.

Hmmm. I think I could make a case for everything in my fridge as being "healthy". The only stuff that really isn't healthy is the mayo and the salad dressings, but even they are made with olive oil.

May is just eggs and (hearth healthy oil), so what is not healthy about that I have some chicken tenders that are healthy, but I am going to bread them and fry them tonight, so I am not sure if I can count those as healthy. I have some celeary sticks that am I am going to serve along with the chicken tenders, so I guess there is one healthy thing on the menu tonight lol.

Low-fat milk, water, red bell pepper, lettuce, apples, sliced mushrooms, tomatoes (even though they shouldn't be in there, but I don't want them to ripen too fast), 7-grain bread, leftover vegie rice pilaf, carrots, cerely, and spinach.
A little kindness goes a long way.
