I am sure you have heard every story about how to eat right and what not to eat. There are millions of diets and foods that are unhealthy for you. But I am going to give you a little glimpse into what I have in my fridge. Remember I am training 4-7 hours a day, now let us begin.
We will start with some of the basics. I have milk sitting in the door beside the juice. But this is not just any old white milk- no this is chocolate milk. I use it in my cereal in the morning and just to drink after workouts with a pinch of salt added. I find it is a lot easier to drink than regular milk and a great post workout drink. I like to keep eggs handy for my second breakfast, after my morning workout. There usually is not a lot of time until the next session so it is something easy to make. When it comes to green things I keep broccoli, asparagus, peppers and salad handy. I can usually mix these things up to add to my lunch and dinner. For meat I like to really change it up but ground beef, sausage and chicken are great. There are a lot of different dishes that can be created with them. I really like to keep ice cream on hand for those hard days when I cannot get in enough food no matter how hard I try it fills in the gaps. Cheese and yogurt are usually in there too. The cheese for sandwiches and the yogurt is a good snack food that can be mixed with other things. When it comes to sauces I am a big fan of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauces and caesar dressing.
Some staples I have in the pantry are, Coffee! Could not live without it. I keep some tea for the end of the day when I am winding down. I like to keep a big bag of chips around. I like tortilla chips mainly because they have a good amount of salt and are an easy carb to take in even before a workout. On the topic of carbs, pasta is a staple for dinner. I have cookies in there too. But they usually do not last for very long especially if they are Oreos.
These are a few of things I like to keep in my fridge.
