The Must Haves in My Fridge!

I have really tried to cut grain and dairy out of my diet. After all my diets I've tried over the years I have found this is the easiest and simplest one to follow as well as gives me the best results.. You just need a little extra planning. There are a few key things I try to keep all the time to make this diet a little easier. My top 10 Staples in my fridge for a no dairy, no grain diet….

1 – EGGS… and egg whites!

2 – Condiments and things for cooking – Mustard, lemon juice, lemon pepper, hot sauce, olive oil, coconut oil, vanilla extract, honey

3 – Pickled Things – pickles, sauerkraut, jalapenos, jarred peppers (I don’t like olives but they would be nice to add as well if you’re an olive fan)

4 – Bacon – especially turkey bacon!

5 – Greens and Veggies – some type of lettuce (lettuce, kale, spinach), frozen mixed veggies, green beans, sliced squash and cucumbers, tomatoes (yes I know it is technically a fruit).

6 – A good black coffee!!!

7 – Frozen Fruit for smoothies… individually bagged! Fresh fruit chopped and ready for a quick snack. And dehydrated fruit is a great snack as well.

8 – Boneless, skinless chicken breasts – there are sooo many dinner choices you can do with this!

9 – Avocado – I am a HUGE fan of this! You can add it to just about any meal to really add flavor!

10 – Almond or Coconut milk – great for smoothies or to fix your sweet tooth!

These are the items I buy pretty much every time I go to the grocery! We eat just about every one of these in some form every day and all my recipes revolve around them.

I try not to keep snacks in the pantry besides stuff for the kids (and my husband). There are very few things that are clean and healthy that you store in the pantry!
