Cooking and sharing nourishing, delicious food with my family is one of life’s greatest pleasures. And since what you eat is such a huge factor in how good you feel, I’m always thinking about my next meal
Take a peek inside my fridge to see my daily essentials—and maybe get some grocery shopping ideas!
And stay tuned for other editions of “What’s In The Fridge” in the future to get an inside scoop on how wellness experts really eat.
Spicy turmeric kraut
“I always pick up fermented veggies from the farmer’s market—they are great as a snack or right before a meal. They serve as my daily dose of probiotics and help with digestion. Fermented foods are really important in producing healthy bacteria and gut flora. And a strong gut may protect your body from inflammation, allergies, viruses and sickness. Fermented foods may also regulate weight, ward off acne and improve your mood. What don’t they do?!”
Ava’s homemade baby food
“I make all of Ava’s food from scratch. I place fresh veggies in Baby Brezza’s One Step Baby Food Maker, which steams and then blends them, all in one machine! Not only is this pretty affordable, it also means Ava gets to have the freshest and most nourishing foods possible. She loves everything we give her, from garbanzo beans to asparagus to sweet potato and even Brussels sprouts.”
“Coconut kefir is coconut water that has been fermented. It is an essential source of probiotics. The kefir is rich in minerals such as potassium that give you gorgeous, glowing skin. One sip of this tangy drink packs a punch—so a little goes a long way. Sip it before your meal and it will help you digest even the toughest of foods.”
“This warm and nourishing liquid is a must-have in my fridge. When I need an extra immunity kick or I am feeling a bit sluggish, I heat some up and sip it from a mug. Bone broth contains minerals your body can easily absorb–such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulfur and trace minerals–that are essential for a balanced inner system and support bone, joint and muscle function.”
Apple Cider Vinegar
“I love cooking with it, especially in dressings or my garlic aioli. It’s antiviral and antibacterial, which helps you ease an upset stomach or ward off a cold. It also helps maintain a balanced, alkaline pH level in your body, which is a good thing because inflammation and sickness thrive in an acidic state. I mix a little with my morning lemon water if I am feeling under the weather.”
