Each month offers a chance at a new beginning, a new beginning for my refrigerator. I want to have healthy snacks at the ready for myself and my family. I want to plan ahead for meals. I want to remember to drink enough water during the day. So this month, before the paycheck has all been spent, I'm going to spend a little time making my refrigerator over. There is a great article on the Body & Soul website about what kinds of food should go in your refrigerator, so I decided to focus on how to store all that good food.
First, let me say that I do not think you have to go out and buy lots of new containers in order to organize your refrigerator. However, just like a new pair of running shoes can draw you back outdoors, I think that a few new things can inspire new behaviors. I love the idea of taking my own produce bags to the store with me and I would like to begin to collect some glass storage containers; they are healthier (no BPA) and last longer than plastic (provided you're not terribly clumsy).
