Post image for Inside My Real Food Fridge

Today we are going somewhere pretty scary. See that picture above? That's the inside of my fridge. Scary isn't it? But I thought today I'd share what the inside of my fridge and freezer looks like. Sometimes when you are trying to figure things out it helps to have a real visual! So incase you are wondering how this whole real food thing works, check this out.

My Fridge:

Top Shelf - Fresh eggs, leftovers, fresh mozzarella, Veganaise, organic lettuce.
2nd Shelf - Non-hormone cottage cheese (Daisy brand), leftovers, mozzarella cheese, raw milk.
3rd Shelf - Oranges! (bought in bulk and didn't have room for them!) Non-hormone cheddar cheese. (Tillamook Brand is our fav!)
4th Shelf - More oranges, non-hormone cream cheese.
Drawer - Organic apples, pears, broccoli, and blueberries.

You can peak at a few things in the door from this pic too, it's mostly organic stir fry sauces, butter, rennet, ect.


And the freezer. Mine is super full right now from all the freezer baking I've been doing. (Also my ice maker does not work so it's just another shelf!

Top Shelf - Butter, Chicken Broth(in the ice cube trays), Applegate hot dogs.
2nd Shelf - Chocolate Chip Bagels 
3rd Shelf - Frozen Veggies, Vanilla Cupcakes
4th Shelf - Breakfast Sandwiches
5th Shelf - Homemade meatballs, homemade sausage patties 

Yep, that's it! Is that what your fridge looks like? What do you think about what's in my fridge? What other area in my house would you like to see?

I love this idea! Thanks so much for sharing! I love to see what others have in their fridge and it helps others to see that you are true.

Your freezer looks similar to mine, but I wish I had more oranges in my fridge!! Where did you get so many??


3 Merissa April 25, 2012 at 10:16 am

I ordered them from Azure Standard this week.

First thing I noticed – TILLAMOOK CHEESE!!! And the dairy farmers of Tillamook Oregon thank you!!! Especially my son!!! lol !


5 Merissa April 25, 2012 at 10:26 am

Haha we are total Tillamook Cheese Lovers!

Yours looks cleaner than mine. I detest cleaning out the fridge. Mine needs it. Thanks for sharing!


7 Courtney April 25, 2012 at 10:26 am

What are your plans with all those oranges???


8 Merissa April 25, 2012 at 10:31 am

I’m going to juice them! My juicer just died so I had to wait to order another but I’m going to put up a post with how I juice and store them:)


9 Christy April 25, 2012 at 10:36 am

The oranges make me smile. I have a question though! What’s the us for the chicken stock in ice trays? I like the idea, but how is that enough chicken stock for when your using it? This is a cool idea!


10 Merissa April 25, 2012 at 10:39 am

I like them that way because they are easier to store. I don’t think I ever just use one or 2 but I use a whole bunch for soups bases or to add to some chicken dishes.

My hubby just cleaned out the fridge not too long ago so it’s not looking to bad right now:)


12 Heidi Peyton April 25, 2012 at 10:41 am

Looks nice!


13 Michelle Wentling April 25, 2012 at 10:43 am

I intend to pile mine up with more stuff once I get my larger fridge…


14 Narrow Gate Family Farm April 25, 2012 at 10:48 am

Mmmm, can you spare an orange? 😉


15 Little House on the Prairie Living April 25, 2012 at 10:52 am

Narrow Gate Family Farm, I definitely can spare an orange. I should take an up close picture of those things, they are HUGE!


16 Gwen Hunter Valentino April 25, 2012 at 10:59 am

I know you have your resources already…but (always a but, huh) I signed up for this online store. I have no idea if the prices are competitive…just passing on info in case it will help 🙂


17 Gwen Hunter Valentino April 25, 2012 at 11:00 am

crap, I hit the return button!!


18 Little House on the Prairie Living April 25, 2012 at 11:06 am

I signed up for them too a while back Gwen, but I haven’t full checked them over yet….


19 Gwen Hunter Valentino April 25, 2012 at 11:08 am

I never know what is a “deal” and what is just OK…I try to stay local as much as possible 🙂 But maybe that link will help someone!


20 Susan McClellan Plotts April 25, 2012 at 11:35 am has some pretty amazing deals too.


21 Little House on the Prairie Living April 25, 2012 at 11:46 am

Yes, I love Vitacost! I posted some deals they had yesterday over here:


22 Charity April 25, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Where oh where do you get Tillamook cheese?


23 Merissa April 25, 2012 at 5:24 pm

I either get it at Safeway or Sam’s Club. Sam’s sells the bigger block and it’s cheaper:)


24 Beth April 25, 2012 at 2:42 pm

I love looking in other people’s refrigerators! If it wouldn’t get me sent off somewhere I would open fridge doors whenever I went to visit someone :). Okay, not that bad… but I really do enjoy looking into others’ BLOG fridges!


25 Jo April 25, 2012 at 8:03 pm

My fridge is messy and full of junk food, ha! I love all the stuff in your drawer. Blueberries are one of my favorite foods. Those oranges remind me that I should get some Texas red grapefruit. Love those.

Thanks for a neat post. 🙂


26 Angie May 11, 2012 at 11:59 am

Tillamook & Daisy may not have artificial hormones, but they aren’t organic or grass-fed versions. I’ve noticed a big difference in how I feel by upgrading from these types of products to grass-fed (or at least organic) butter, cream, sour cream, cheese, etc. Love seeing your fridge! 🙂


27 Patty April 21, 2013 at 9:34 am

Thanks for the peek into your fridge…mine still has too many store-bought condiments, but I’m working on replacing them with homemade as we run out! Thanks, too, for those who also posted other sites to purchase groceries. I like to buy as much local a I can (luckily, we live on the border of a farming community!) but its nice to also have other great resources!
