Exercise/ Fitness/ Lunch

Come In My Fridge

Hello everyone, I hope your Tuesday is treating you well.

Yoga this morning was really good….but boy oh boy, was I ever sweaty!!! I don’t think the room is quite as hot as Bikram but it had to have been at least 98-99 degrees in there this morning and Thom had us twisting is all sorts of crazy postures. My whole body is EXTREMELY sore right now and that made me think back and realize that I have worked out for the past 10 days straight without any rest days. Exercise has done its part in keeping me busy during my grief, but I think its high time for a rest day!

I rushed after yoga to the grocery store because I had to do our first “couples” shopping trip, which I found out today is MUCH more expensive than just shopping for one!! I started to feel a little faint in the store because I didn’t have time to get a snack after yoga, so I rummaged through my purse and found this mini larabar that I got at a race a few months ago—


I also had a sample slice of Boar’s Head turkey while I was buying a half pound for sandwiches and I felt a lot better after that!

Once home, I made a quick lunch of some balsamic tomato soup (from the hot bar at Greenwise), half of a sunflower flax whole wheat roll and a babybel cheese. I LOVED this soup….it was very light (no cream that I could detect) and the balsamic flavor really brought out the ripeness of the tomatoes. Perfect for summer! Of course I am also addicted to these babybel cheeses so this lunch was a real winner.


And that my mom and I got pedicures!! She had two $20 off coupons for spa pedicures so how could we resist? Sometimes it just feels really good to just sit and let someone take care of you. Well, heck, it always feels good but especially right now.

I snacked on one of my favorite bars while running errands—


And sipped on grape soda 😉


Since I was in such a rush this morning and didn’t have time to photograph my groceries (the first big shop!), I decided to let you all into my fridge instead…..warning: I JUST moved in a few days ago so a bunch of this stuff is Ryan’s and has been there for a long time 😉

So come on in!



Top shelf—

  • raspberry preserves
  • raw almond butter
  • raw cashew hummus
  • eggs
  • chobani
  • Ezekiel bread
  • Ezekiel sprouted tortillas
  • raw pizza crusts
  • honey butter
  • Ryan’s chocolate peanut butter Easter egg
  • grapes
  • 0% Fage
  • raw chocolate chip cookies from One Lucky Duck 🙂
  • tofu
  • leftover grilled fish from last night


The “protein drawer”—

  • prosciutto
  • Boar’s Head turkey deli meat
  • babybel cheese
  • goat cheese
  • hummus
  • lowfat Mexican cheese


Bottom shelf close-up—

  • raw tabbouli
  • mojo rotisserie chicken
  • Ryan’s orange juice
  • my water bottle
  • kombucha
  • old soft drinks/drink mixers



  • orange bell pepper
  • strawberries
  • organic baby carrots
  • spinach
  • organic mixed greens
  • mushrooms
  • ginger
  • zucchini
  • sweet potatoes (not in fridge)


Holy condiments!!!!

I don’t even have a clue what most of this stuff is so I’m not even going to guess…..we do have a plethora of coconut milk, raw tahini, sliced almonds, wheat germ and salad dressing though.



  • Amy’s pizza pockets
  • frozen oatmeal bread from Greenwise
  • morningstar farm’s pizza burgers
  • all natural whipped topping
  • Kashi Go Lean waffles
  • Vitamuffins
  • coconut milk ice cream sammies
  • frozen fruit for smoothies
  • frozen meat and fish


  • raw almonds
  • raw cashews
  • coconut milk ice creams
  • regular ice cream
  • ground flax
  • sunshine burgers
  • frozen drink mix
  • beer mugs

So there ya have it!

I can’t wait to show you all our new stove but I don’t think we will be getting it until Friday. Once I organize the cabinets I will take a picture of that, too, but right now its too sloppy!! I don’t want you all to think I’m a slob or anything!

I’m off to work on my mushroom recipe for next month’s Mushroom Channel post and work on writing my book. Yep, I finally bit the bullet and started writing my book the other day. I’m not giving any hints as to anything about it though…you all will just have to wait and see. Hopefully you will see it in 10 years or less. Haha 😉

    Hey Jenna!

    I was just wondering where you lived in Paris because I live here now (in the 14th) and the picture of you at a farmers’ market in Paris looks EXACTLY like the one on the end of my block – any chance you lived on rue Boulard??

      I lived on Rue Monge……RIGHT next to the Cardinal Lemone metro stop. That picture was taken at the farmer’s market on Rue Monge every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I miss it so much!!!

    Speaking of writing books, have you heard of NANOWRIMO? Basically, you write a 10,000 word (about 100 pages) novel during the month of November. I did this last November and although it wasn’t my best work, it was an amazing writing exercise. I learned a lot about how to keep a story going for a relatively long time, and I gained so much confidence because now I know that I can actually write a novel. The next step, is of course, to write one I’m comfortable letting other people read!
    Anyway, I thought you’d find it interesting. I’d totally be up for starting a blogger NANOWRIMO team for next year if anyone is interested. 🙂

    I’m sure it’s a ton more expensive shopping for two, especially now that you’re also shopping for a grown man who probably has a bigger appetite! Your refrigerator looks amazing though 🙂
    Good luck with the book! I’m so excited about it– I don’t know if I can handle the anticipation for the next 10 years lol!

    Don’t you just LOVE the Bonne Maman preserves? They’re SO expensive here in the city but I won’t buy anything else! I highly highly recommend the blueberry if you haven’t tried that variety yet. Can’t wait for the book!

    im reallllllllly jealou sof the size of your fridge. living in nyc has its downsides and the biggets one is FOR SURE the kitchen sitch. you would be in agony if you saw the teeny fridge. the door alone can only hold one tall thing – so we can only get certain condiments at once, and only have small milk cartons. wahhhhhh.

    First and foremost, CONGRATS on starting your book! That is incredible. Can you believe you’re even doing it? Yayy!

    I love couples shopping for groceries together. It’s adorable! My man accompanies me, and it feels so odd to go without him now. He puts up with my ridiculous debates between products. He even helps by hiding them behind his back and I have to pick a hand. Yes, it’s that ridiculous sometimes.

    Great fridge tour! I’d be more than happy with that! Hope you have a relaxing evening 🙂

    I bet writing is such a major release for you right now. Congrats & good luck with that! Is that tanning spray I see on your condiment rack, or is it some spray salad dressing? Ha!

    When I lived with my boyfriend, it was 95% my healthy crap and then 5% beer (all his). Too bad I don’t have any pictures of it!

    It’s amazing how expensive shopping for two is! I used to only spend $20/week on food – I made one big dish and ate it all week. Now, I have to be more creative…at least that’s more fun.
