Inside My Fridge

FullSizeRender 287

To say my fridge always looks like this would be a big old lie; here’s the truth: organization has never been my strong suit. In saying that, I want to shift gears and explain that even if something has never been your “strong suit” you can make it as strong as you’d like, you just have to make the effort. We often pigeon hole ourselves and define who we are based on long practiced habits- but guess what? They’re just habits and all habits can be changed. We can always change the status quo and decide to do whatever we want to do or be whoever we want to be through intention. I make the effort every day to try to be more organized, I’ll research organizational blogs or pick up little tips from my peers and adopt them- it’s always a work in progress.

Okay, enough about my habits. The point is: I’ve finally organized my fridge and gotten to a place where I’m better equipped to keep it that way. I will share with you some organizational tips, plus the items I always have on hand.

Lentil Burgers

These lentil burgers are so delicious and versatile, they have quickly become a staple in my home (my boyfriend begs me to make them every single week). So versatile, in fact, that these ‘burgers’ don’t have to be eaten like a burger at all. I often simply throw them in a salad or break them up into pieces mimicking a meatball of sorts. They’re a great form of plant based protein, and perfect for meal prep. Make ahead and store them in the fridge for lunches all week!

Satisfying sweet potato, creamy coconut milk, a dash of vanilla, sea salt, cinnamon and allspice are blended together and topped with granola, nuts, seeds and more in this delicious breakfast bowl recipe.

Magical Cheesecake Cookie Dough Bars

I’m going to go out on a limb here and proclaim that this might be my favorite recipe to date. These cheesecake cookie dough bars (or squares!) are as vibrant and pure as my namesake; not to mention they are raw, vegan, paleo, refined sugar free and their cookie dough base contains beautifying medicinal mushroom powder! These magical bars boast a hazelnut chocolate chip cookie dough base, a lemon raspberry layer, and a marbled orange blossom & vanilla bean layer topped with fresh figs and pistachio crumbles.
