A healthy body is built by healthy, whole, unprocessed foods. If you want to eat well you need to have good, nutritious foods readily available.
Since your pantry and fridge are the base for your healthy meals, that is where we will start.
Here is a picture of our fridge, prepped and ready to go for the week and stuffed with vibrant colors and fresh, whole foods.
We eat most of our meals at home, in fact, we rarely eat out. So yes, we really do eat ALL of this food. By the end of the week, this fridge will be almost empty.
