What's in my Fridge?!

Oh hiiiiiiiiii!  I've seen a few posts where the author gives you a glimpse inside their fridge and I thought, what better time to share what's in mine, since it's brand new and probably the cleanest it will ever be!  Lucky you!

Without further ado, here are all the secrets contained in a single cat lady's refrigerator!

Let's start with the freezer:

  • Frozen treats:  Fruit bars, Cashew milk ice cream (vegan)
  • Frozen veggies: Broccoli, Brussels sprouts
  • Frozen seafood: Shrimp, Mussels
  • Frozen fruit (for smoothies): Pineapple, Strawberries
  • Cool whip (non-dairy topping for summer fruit)
  • Random frozen dinner rolls from my mom!
  • Ice packs (for running injuries!)

On to the main fridge.  Here's what's on the door:

  • Condiments:  Salad dressing, mustard, cocktail sauce, horseradish, lime juice
  • Jelly: 1 store-bought, and 2 jars of homemade strawberry jam from my Aunt
  • Vegan butter alternative: I use Smart Balance (light)
  • Hershey's syrup (dairy-free!)
  • Real maple syrup
  • Almond milk

And the Holy Grail:

  • More almond milk!
  • Brita pitcher (couldn't tell you the last time I actually changed the filter in that thing)
  • Iced tea
  • Gatorade
  • Coconut water
  • Various Bolthouse and Naked juices
  • Random 'natural' energy drink someone gave me, and I have yet to try
  • White wine (Moscato)
  • Champagne (I have zero recollection of when/where/why I got that champagne!)
  • Natural/brown eggs
  • Hummus
  • English muffins (I keep my bread in the fridge thinking this makes it last longer. I have no idea if this is true.)
  • Pickles
  • Ground flaxseed (for smoothies)
  • Takeout (from Carrabba's)
  • Fruit: Currently grapes, oranges, and plums
  • Veggies: Currently corn-on-the-cob and baby carrots

Andddddddd that's all she wrote.

After typing all of that out, I realize about 60% of the contents of my refrigerator are beverages! What can I say, I'm a thirsty girl, especially in the summer.

I'd say this is pretty representative of what's in my fridge most of the time.  The only things currently missing are some greens and some kind of meat, which I'll pick up fresh later this week when I run out of those leftovers up there.

I haven't seen the inside of a ton of other single peoples' refrigerators, but I feel like I probably have more food than average?! I think this is due to the fact that I don't eat any meals out any more on a day to day basis.  I used to buy lunches out a lot when I worked in an office, but I can't just peace out on the kids now and go for lunch!  So I pack food all week and eat dinner at home almost every night.  I only eat out or get takeout once or twice a week, usually on weekends, and it's pretty much always one of these 4 things:

- Sushi
- Panera
- Chipotle
- Carrabba's


Tell me what's in your fridge!!  (Especially if you've got some weird things lurking back there)

And have a marvelous Tuesday.


  1. I love those outshine bars! I have tons of fruits and veggies in my fridge mainly for my healthy husband but also for my sugar gliders! Have a great week xo

    1. Yes! Love fruit pops in the summer. And I had no idea you had sugar gliders!!! What neat little pets!

  2. It's always interesting to see what other people have! My fridge is literally stocked with veggies and berries. And some TJ's grilled chicken. The freezer has some frozen veggies and potato wedge things. All the good stuff is non-refrigerated ;)

    1. Haha yes same here! All my candy and snacks are in the cupboards. I've been eating a ton of fruit this summer but have been slacking on veggies. I dk why. Time to get on that.

  3. Sushi = WHAT I ALWAYS go out for when I eat out. Even if I eat out like 5 days in a row, LOL!! I can NOT get enough ;)

    And my Freezer is WAYYY more packed than my FRIDGE!

    1. It's been more than a week since I've had some sushi and I'm dyinggggg! Need some now! I am coming out to CA for my first time ever next month and hoping to get some really fresh seafood and sushi!

  4. I always enjoy seeing what other people have in the fridge. I have a lot of cool whip and whipped cream in mine. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    1. Haha yeah I always think it's fun to see what other people have in there! Yep cool whip for the win!

  5. What's taking up the majority of space in my fridge are sodas leftover from parties. I always make sure to have coke, diet coke, etc on hand for people who drink them. However I don't so they just sit there! I feel bad throwing them out, so I have a whole self of soda! Maybe I should give it to the local homeless folks? Or take to my parents house?

    1. Oh I bet you are such a good hostess! My parents always have soda in theirs too for the exact same reason even though neither of them drink it!

  6. We have a lot of beer, yogurt, and veggies. And chocolate. Priorities.

    1. I'm sure if I had a man friend around there would be beer but I rarely ever drink it! Do you keep your chocolate in the fridge?! Tell me your secret reason why!

  7. your fridge is so neat! and actually has....things in it! (unlike mine) i've written about this before but i'm a terrible food shopper and tend not to keep a lot of perishable things since i ALWAYS end up throwing food out (sigh, #SingleGirlProblems). i have refrigerator envy right now though looking at this post!

    1. Ha it's only neat Bc I literally just got that new fridge! It will never ever look like that again! But I hear us on the wasting food thing. I tend to throw stuff out a lot too and feel bad about it. Used to happen all the time with loaves of bread so I don't buy it any more. I mean can't they make HALF loaves of bread for single people?!? I'm petitioning the bread company

  8. haha, I was about to say most of your fridge contents are beverages! I love it, the life of a runner.

    1. Haha yes! So many drinks. All summer long

  9. Your fridge is so neat and tidy! I am not brave enough to share mine...I swear it's clean but just a wee bit crowded ;)

    1. Aw it's only clean Bc I just got a brand new fridge. It will never look like this again!

  10. Watermelon! Jax went looking for one yesterday and was very disappointed not to find any!

    1. I just got some watermelon. Send Jax down to Bmore to visit his Aunt Jilly!
