We all had so much fun with the Five Things You Would Learn About Me Blog Carnival, Trisha challenged us to do another one – this one an even bigger glimpse into our personal lives… what do you eat!?
We do our best to “Eat Clean” which means basically few things come from a box, bag, or can. So you can imagine – the “shelf life” is almost nil. Since the girls and I leave tomorrow for a few days and Mike doesn't cook while we are gone, I made sure there were a few things precooked for him, but usually this is a bit more stocked with fresh vegetables.
The containers are of course the food for Mike, along with 3 eggs, one head of lettuce, and an orange. There is also one bag of chicken and some veggies to steam in the microwave. I keep having to remind myself that he was a bachelor and managed to eat for 28 years before I met him – he will be fine.
The one thing we ALWAYS have plenty of – is cheese. I can eat cheese on anything. The only thing that will ever keep me from being 100% Eating Clean is cheese. I wont give it up. Ever.
The beer at the bottom has been there over a year. I know. We use a bottle here and there for cooking (like cheese fondue) but other than that neither of us drink it … so… it sits.
The white bags on the left in the freezer… yeah those are all ice packs I use for my shin splints. Nice, eh?
We do have a pantry but we use it more for storage than for food. Like I said with “Eating Clean” you really do not need much room for dry food. Here is our only cupboard of food:
I mentioned before I am a minimalist… right?
Oatmeal, brown rice, tuna, pretzels, tea, soup, nuts, peanut butter, and then some random snacks for the girls. That's about it. And to be honest – looking at this makes me want to go clean it out cause there is WAY too much stuff in there that we dont use. And I have no idea how a bottle of spray paint ended up in there…
Now we do have one more cupboard on the other side that seldom gets opened anymore. In fact a few weeks ago Mike looked into it and said “When I met you four years ago, I never in a million years would have imagined I would have to have a cupboard completely dedicated to your baking stuff.”

Thankfully I live almost within walking distance of a grocery store, as I shop every 2 or 3 days to make sure I have the freshest food possible.

Now, if you would excuse me, I am going to go clean all of this out as my anxiety is on overdrive…. thanks for the motivation, T….
