Recently, a friend made a post in which she showed the contents of her fridge. Following her invitation, I will let you peek into mine today. So, what do we have in there?
In the top shelf:
container of lamb’s lettuce
bag of spinach
box of chicken in anise and onion marinade
In the bottom shelf:
containers with organic butter and miso
white and green asparagus
In the vegetable drawer:
bag of organic lemons
red bell pepper (which needs to be finished off next)
Pink Lady apples
more carrots (hiding underneath)
In the door:
jar of mustard
bottle of lime juice
stylish bottle of Kikkoman soy sauce (my favorite)
tube of wasabi
piece of fresh gingerroot
pot of diluted cream
On the fridge:
pot of fresh basil
bottle of roasted sesame oil
little jar of shichimi togarashi spice mix
James the blender (you can only see his feet)
And what do we do with all that spinach and a banana, with the help of a blender?
Spinach and Banana Protein Smoothie
1-2 big handful of spinach
125 ml (1/2 cup) almond milk
175 ml (3/4 cup) water
2 tbsp protein powder (I used rice protein powder)
Blend and enjoy. (And yay, Kristina, it really gets that green! )
