The Fridge and Freezer

Just as with the pantry, there are some fridge basics to keep handy:

Fridge
Low-fat milk
Mayo
Eggs (and egg whites and egg substitute)
Celery
Bell peppers (all colors!)
Onions
Apples
Plain Greek yogurt
Parmesan cheese (not that grated crap in the green can)
Another cheese or two, like cheddar, Swiss, Gruyere or feta
Beer. You should always have beer in the fridge. Yeah.

Freezer
fresh fruits (no sugar added)
ginger root (fresh, unpeeled. it keeps forever in the freezer. peel and grate as you need it)
coffee
chicken breasts
center cut pork chops
pork tenderloin
pork shoulder
stew beef
ground venison
salmon steaks
cooked shrimp
homemade soups

As you can see, we try to stay away from prepared foods as much as possible. I’m very happy to add my own salt and fat, thank you very much.
