A Peek into My Pantry

In recent weeks, “fridge shots” have been floating around the blogosphere. Perhaps what makes these photographs so interesting to us foodies is that a refrigerator’s contents reveal a lot about a person: his or her tastes, attitude toward health, and even organizational habits. In essence, a “fridge shot” is a little peek into the person who owns it.

In addition to the personal aspect of these pictures, there is also a practical side: they provide insight into what comprises a nutritious diet as well as effective ways to organize foodstuffs for maximum efficiency while cooking.

The video below provides a glimpse into how my parents an I maintain healthful diets…and how I blissfully categorize it all:)

What’s in your fridge, and how does it represent you? How do you keep it all organized?
