Foods you should find in your Fridge & Pantry




Open your fridge door and take a good look at what foods you have in there. Do the same with your pantry. Everyone’s will be slightly different, but it gives a great indication of what foods you consume most of on a daily basis and how many temptations you have lying around. When I open my fridge it is jam packed with food. The fridge is so full food almost falls out! These foods consist mostly of beautiful fresh fruits and vegetables along with a small amount of condiments such as vegemite, peanut butter and a few sauces.
