On the top shelf is Vitacost brand probiotics, and tumeric-two of the supplements that helped my husband overcome gerd (chronic heartburn). He doesn’t have to take his prilosec anymore! The lemon juice is to help me detox. It is really good for the liver, and is one of the things I have done to help my sleep. You can read more about the connection between insomnia and liver health here. I used to take vitamin D so it is still in the fridge. I don’t feel that I need it anymore.
On the second shelf is high quality olive oil. Olive oil is notorious for being “watered down” with cheaper vegetable oils. I trust the California Olive Ranch brand as being the real thing. Oils are so important for health. The wrong oils can ruin your health, and the right oils can help you to regain or keep your health. Do you want to know how fats can help you feel great and look great? Read this post about nourishing (fatty) foods.
The dairy drawer has cheese and butter in it for helping to keep my kids and husband’s teeth healthy. (I’m dairy free right now). There was a doctor named Weston Price who discovered that cavities could be prevented or even reversed with nutrition. Grass fed butter was especially important in reversing cavities. I have a niece who was having serious gastrointestinal issues and was unable to eat very much for months. Her parents had noticed a sensitivity to dairy, but needed to do something because she was developing cavities. Her mom had her to simply rub the grassfed butter on her teeth. My niece could actually feel her teeth hurting less after doing this! Read amazing stories of reversing cavities here. When we are able we buy Kerry gold (grass fed) butter from Costco.
The leftovers in the fridge are very important. They help me keep my sanity! Since we cook everything from scratch, leftovers give us a break. So we don’t have to cook 3 times a day! We reheat our leftovers by putting a little oil and water in a pan and warming them on the stove (We have pretty much retired our microwave). The throat coat tea and goot are natural remedies for colds. More on some of the natural remedies that we use to get rid of colds are in this post.
On the bottom shelf are eggs, fruit (part of my liver detox), and a flannel soaked in castor oil (liver detox). In the bottom are my vegetables (They are low histamine and low oxalate because that is what I am working on right now for me.)
My fridge door has pumpkin seeds (David brand), prunes, millet, gluten free flours (garbanzo bean, tapioca, sorghum, coconut), aloe vera juice for digestion (Vitacost brand), aloe for sunburn (Aubrey Organics), B12 shots that I don’t need any longer, and amalaki powder for liver health and extra vitamin C.
