What's In Your Fridge?
The anatomy of each household's fridge is totally different, so we've decided to explore the fridges of people that inspire us to eat clean. Follow our mini-series where we give you a peek inside the fridges of fitness trainers, nutritionists, and healthy entreprenuers. Get #inspo for your own #cleaneating as we ask the question, "What's in your fridge?"
MEET THE MALSINS!
Rachel Malsin is a co-founder of Project Juice and her hubby, Greg is the head of PJ retail. Being passionate entrepreneurs, Greg and Rachel split their waking hours between their first born (Project Juice) and their two boys - Oren Max (age: two years), and Jackson Hayes (age: six months).
Greg fills in his other tiny gaps of time with recreational volleyball, a gym session, or keeping up with the latest tech news. Rachel spends her free time researching new ingredients that are up and coming in the wellness world and discovering the latest gadgets available to help herself and other other moms keep it all together.
Being that clean eating is integral to Rachel and Greg’s lives, they are giving us a peek into their fridge so we can see how they manage to eat clean while juggling the demands of entrepreneurship and family!
How many people does your fridge feed?
Four! But our youngest, Jax, is only six months and still drinking only milk...for now.
How many meals do you cook at home?
We cook breakfast every morning which usually includes eggs, gluten-free breads, smoothies or oatmeal with fresh fruit. Lunch is usually light and on-the-go at the office or one of the stores. Dinner we try to cook at least 4 times per week.
What’s your favorite beverage(s)?
Kombucha, cold brew coffee and of course Project Juice. My toddler also drinks goat milk before bed as opposed to regular cow’s milk. During the day we give him Ripple pea protein milk (we always buy the plain and unsweetened one). It has as much protein as regular cow’s milk, without the inflammatory side effects, and tastes great.
What produce do you always have on hand?
We buy produce from Good Eggs and receive a delivery of whatever is organic and seasonal. For fruits, we usually have oranges and apples. For greens, we especially like to have kale or any greens that are easy to throw in a salad.
What quick snacks do you keep handy?
What condiments do you always have in your fridge?
We are big on butters and usually have almond butter, coconut butter and one other butter like cashew on hand.
We love Josey Baker’s Gluten Free Rice and Seed Bread - we get this from Good Eggs along with our weekly organic produce delivery. The bread pairs perfectly with the nut butters or our other favorite, Kite Hill almond milk chive cream cheese.
Do you have any must-haves that are ALWAYS in your fridge?
What are your go-to meals?
Lately we have been buying spiralized zucchini by Joyloop to add to pastas for a burst of raw veggies or to simply eat on their own with tomato sauce.
Current foodie obsessions?
Lately, we have been obsessed with bone broth and we use it to cook rice in or drink it straight. Greg is doing bulletproof-style coffee in the morning, blending Bulletproof MCT oil, Fourth & Heart vanilla ghee, and Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides in our Vitamix.
We are also using Green Chef to make cooking organic meals at home simple. We love cooking, but the prep time has been a hurdle in the past. With Green Chef, we get organic meals, pre-prepared so we get to enjoy cooking at home. But, some of the heavy-lifting is done for us.
