3 Fridge Organisation Ideas for Healthy Eating
Your fridge can either be your best friend or your worst enemy when it comes to healthy eating—and a lot of it has to do with how we organise the contents. True story. If our produce is all stored at the bottom of the fridge, out of direct sight and still in grocery store produce bags, it’s easy to forget that all those healthy fruits and veggies are even there.
However, with a few easy steps, you can make sure your healthy favourites are prepped, organised and ready-to-use at a moment’s notice. From healthy lunch meal kits to grab-and-go snacks, read on for our favourite ways to set up a fridge for healthy-eating success.
1. Wash, prep and store produce for ready-to-eat snacks
When a snack attack strikes, having healthier, vitamin-rich fruit at the ready is an easy way to avoid mindless munching. To make sure you're snack-time ready, wash and prep fruit and veggies as soon as you bring your produce home from the market and store in single-serve reusable Stasher Bags. We love storing cut-up fruit and veggies at the top front of the fridge, where the rainbow array of colours will entice us when we’re craving a quick snack.
2. Make and store weekly meal kits
If you’re looking for a way to streamline your weekly breakfasts and lunches, then meal-prep is for you. Not only is it easy to prepare a week’s worth of salads, homemade granola, yogurt parfaits or whatever your heart (and your tastebuds) desire—it’s also a fun weekend afternoon activity. Store your pre-made, single-serve meal kits in Weck Canning Jars, which feature air-tight sealing gaskets for extended freshness.
3. Keep healthy ingredients organised and easily visible
It’s said that we eat first with our eyes, so make sure to store healthy produce and lean proteins front-and-center.That way when you open your fridge you can easily spot the ingredients you need to whip up a healthy dish. While a bushel of berries will keep longer and look more appealing when washed and stored in our Berry Box Colander.
