This morning, I uncharacteristically slept in, and woke up at 8am to my fiancé and the two roommates hanging out over coffee, preparing for the day. On this rare occasion, everyone was scheduled to leave the house all at the same time except for myself.
Everyone leaves and I start cleaning house, buzzing around, listening to music, and generally enjoying the time alone. I decide at one point to detail my car. It’s around 1pm, I’m supposed to be meeting my fiancé in just few hours, and have just enough time to thoroughly pamper my car.
I run inside to grab a refreshing beverage, and spot a tasty chocolate snack in the fridge, commence fu. I decide eating one of the two somewhat wonky looking chocolates that was nestled into the butter compartment in the fridge couldn’t cause too much harm. I left one of them, plus, they look like maybe they were just a lost and sad chocolate forgotten in a pocket on a hot day. No one would miss them too much.
I continue cleaning my car, and start... keep reading on reddit ➡
I got a new fridge and was so excited about it. It’s larger than my old one, has so much more freezer space; I’ve never been this excited about a fridge. Well today I dropped an ice cube on the floor and my lazy ass doesn’t wanna pick it up, so I kick it: it bounces straight off. “Huh?” I bend down to investigate. Lo and behold, there’s a guard to keep things from sliding under it. Now I have to pick up my dropped ice cubes... like the adult I am... sigh
So I’m being called back to work, but due to social distancing guidelines we won’t be allowed into our break rooms, which means we won’t have access to the fridge or the microwave! I’ve been wracking my brain trying to think what to bring, because unfortunately most recipes I’ve found still require a microwave. I do work outside on my feet in a very hot and humid climate, so hearty options would be much appreciated—thank you for any help you guys have!
So around my house we have a night probably once a week that is fridge clear out night. That’s basically seeing what you’ve got in the fridge that will go bad soon if you don’t use it, taking as many of those things as possible and making them into something tasty. A lot of people I know do it as a chore and only so they do t feel wasteful. I think it’s an adventure.
Tonight was fridge clean out night. We’ve been pretty good about using things lately so I didn’t have many “must use” items...just some mini sweet peppers, cabbage and smoked pork spare ribs. I sliced it all up thinly, added some onion and garlic and sautéed that with some ground mustard seed, caraway seed, cayenne pepper, a smidge of cumin, salt and pepper. When the cabbage had softened a bit I added a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and let it stew a little longer. I served it with rice.
What I ended up with was almost a pork stir-fried version corned beef and cabbage. It was excellent, and I suspect the lefto... keep reading on reddit ➡
I feel stupid for feeling hopeful before every appointment. I know she can't help me if I can't help me.
I recently in the past few months have moved in with my partner and one of our friends. We all get along fairly well besides the fact that I notice my snacks going missing and drinks disappearing.
Me and my partner usually go shopping together and split our grocery costs, and will go back and forth on who buys certain things. He has always had an issue with eating my leftovers without asking or taking my snacks, but he has gotten way better over the years!
Now when we first moved into this new house together for the first time, things started off decent until both of them ended up being let go from their jobs and are home 24/7.
I know a can be a petty person about little things and let it go when I know I am being internally unreasonable, but if I get a 12 pack of beer/seltzer or any kind of drink on my way home from work, I will get to drink maybe 2 or 3 over two days and then all of them will be gone because my partner tells our roommate to help himself. Our roommate hardly buys g... keep reading on reddit ➡
Honestly, eating room temperature chocolate is disgusting. It tastes better when it comes out of the fridge, very cold. It is so much more enjoyable when it's cold and crunchy compared warm and soft.
Hello friends. I am a T1 diabetic, so I need to keep my insulin in the fridge. Lately I’ve been staying with my girlfriend who lives with her parents, who are very kind to temporarily take me in. I got there yesterday and I was unpacking and asked her if I could put my boxes of insulin in her fridge. She looked a bit uncomfortable and said first that there’s no space. I said this is objectively not true because their fridge is massive (she has four siblings but none of them are at home now) and there’s literally hectares of space, and besides I don’t need that much. She moved on to the next excuse which is that it’s weird to have my medication out in the open like that for other people to see. This one has really hurt my feelings. I mean it’s not like I asked for this illness. I literally need it to live. I tried to explain this to her and she said it’s their property and I should respect what they want to do with it. She also asked me not to do my injections in front of anyone else wh... keep reading on reddit ➡
A little background about myself. My name is Kelli McGrane MS, RD. I have both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Nutrition from Boston University.
EDIT: 3:23 pm MST. Thank you all so much! I never expected to get so much feedback or interest. I apologize for any requests that I didn't get to. I'll try to come back to a few of these later tonight but for now need to sign off. I wish everyone well this weekend!
For several years I worked in both outpatient counseling and nutrition research before taking the leap to work for myself.
Currently, I run my own blog, as well as create content for several health-focused brands.
Many of us are trying to go grocery shopping less. And, even when we do go to the store, are finding limited options.
So, going into the weekend, I want to help you figure out what to make. Simply tell me the ingredients you have on hand, and I’ll give you some ideas.
Of course, feel free to ask me anything about nutrition and healthy eating in general.

...and I paused for a second and not to toot my own horn, but HONK HONK; I dumped that bitch down the drain. Nothing to gain from it. I wouldn’t feel better right now and I definitely wouldn’t feel better later. Bye, girl, bye. 👋
The latest government advice tweeted today reaffirms the 2m social distancing we all need to maintain.
However, in a peculiar turn the UK Govt has seemingly chosen 4 random household objects, none of which are standard in measurement that can be confidently used as a 2m comparison.
Looking closer, it's very peculiar that "3 fridges" have been chosen. Fridges come in a variety of styles, sizes and heights. Are we to assume the fridges are standing, lying end on end, are the doors open?
Like the "model bus" statement Boris and Dominic Cummings are once again trying to shape the narrative around the words "Boris + Fridge" when searched. The Boris Bus was a horrendous waste of money and the Tories need Johnson looking squeaky clean when it comes to Google, a ploy they implemented quite well.
Johnson was notoriously caught out hiding in a fridge from the electorate in a major gaffe that is continually brought up. It... keep reading on reddit ➡
These questions annoy me to no end. As far as I'm concerned, if I can't SEE something then it's as good as nonexistent. I keep my counters cluttered because if I don't see my brush, toothbrush, deodorant, etc, I completely forget it exists.
For this same reason, the fridge and freezer at my apartment has nothing in drawers or in the back, everything is in plain view. My mother's fridge and freezer, however, are totally packed. Since I came down from college her complaint has been that I don't eat the food in the drawers or the back and they end up going bad, but I literally forget they're there. Even when she tells me, next time I open the fridge to get a snack, I am not thinking about the carrots in the drawer, I'm thinking of the things right I front of my face.
