What's In Your Fridge?

I have been super busy with cleaning, tea parties, and dog training and then yesterday I had almost no access to the Internet. But I am doing okay. I had a bit of an emotional crash last night and this morning because a) I was under a lot of stress over something that was resolved last night and I sort of decompressed in an uncontrolled way, and b) I am mid-cycle with whacky hormones. After a week and a half of eating on plan, I lost it and ate a plate of tortilla chips and about 3 ounces of cheese last night. It wasn't a *binge* per se. In fact I ate them very slowly and savored them quite a bit. However the greasiness made me feel queasy and I got right back on track with my final Medifast meal. I am doing fine today with staying on plan; the scale bumped up 2 pounds overnight which is, I am sure, water retention. My goal is to have that gone by my weigh in on Sunday.

I am always interested in hearing about what other people are eating. There are so many different ways to eat, and I am curious: what's in your fridge right now? How about your freezer and pantry?

Mine:

Fridge
Romaine, baby spinach, iceberg lettuce, zucchini, mushrooms, cabbage, broccoli, Greek yogurt, fish oil, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, natural peanut butter, half & half, sugar free vanilla creamer, low fat mozzarella, low fat Mexican blend shredded cheese, lite string cheese, salsa, light Hidden Valley Ranch, Litehouse Salsa Ranch dressing, low carb coleslaw dressing, lite mayo, mustard, low carb ketchup, Walden Farms 0 calorie chocolate syrup, Walden Farms 0 calorie Strawberry jelly, low fat chicken sausages, lite soy sauce, butter, dill pickles, green olives, sugar free strawberry Jello cups, low fat cottage cheese, Mori Nu soft silken tofu, eggs, Egg Beaters, cream cheese, sesame oil, garlic, celery, boxes of free range chicken broth, Parmesan cheese, Medifast RTD shakes, ground flaxseed, light Balsamic vinaigrette.

Pantry
Loads of herbs & spices, Himalayan pink salt, sea salt, regular and light olive oils, canola oil, various vinegars, coffee, lots of tea, Splenda packets, sugar free Torani and Davinci syrups, several types of tuna in cans and pouches, canned salmon that my son caught, cans of diet soda, cans of green beans, diced tomatoes, Rotel, low carb spaghetti sauce, spaghetti squash, canned chicken breast, Pam, Jif, tons of Medifast food packets and bars, cans of black olives.

Of course, there is other stuff that family members are eating (like those darn tortilla chips, whole wheat bread, fruits, potatoes, and too much cheese) but I am only listing above the stuff that is for ME to eat on my plan. I get a wide variety of food and really enjoy it.

Maybe I will write another post later today. I have a bit more cleaning and dog training to do!

There's not much in the fridge right now, since it's Saturday and we have to do the grocery marathon once the BF gets up... I guess all there is right now is some cheese and yogurt. ^^
