    Thank you for a list of versatile foods that I can have in my fridge. I know the feeling of running out of food and contemplating what to eat next.

    Since you mentioned that Salmon Filets are expensive, would alternative fishes such as Cod or Tilapia work out as a good substitute?

      They say that salmon is the best fish as far as health benefits go, but most fish is really healthy for you, just in different ways.

    This is a good list to start with. I love grocery shopping, but it’s not always practical because of time management. So I usually do a one week purchase at one go. The problem is estimating what type of food that can last and retain their flavor until the 7th day. I’ve made wrong purchases in the past that lead to a lot of food waste in the past so it was a lesson well learned.

      I agree Cathy, there is nothing worse than food going to waste. I usually only plan my fresh foods for two to three days in advance.

    Short and simple. To the point!

    I have a funny little story about stocking healthful foods in your fridge…

    My teen has a friend come over and, at my house, they are all welcome to whatever food we have. 

    This kid is rummaging through the fridge and calls out to my son, “All you guys have in here are ingredients!” We ordered them a pizza, but that mantra has lived with us now for years.

    I love this list because, with other things that you buy and may never use up, like spices, you can make a lot of awesome dishes with the ingredients in this list! Right now, I’m thinking of something with that Chicken, Mushrooms, onions and the rice pasta (Maybe a splash of white wine) that I can sprinkle that cheese on.


    All in a pinch!

    Thanks for some great advice! I’ll be looking for those recipes.
