We were delighted to get a sneak peak inside Jordanna’s fridge. Enjoy checking it out for yourselves!
A little more on what is in Jordanna’s fridge (in her words, it was a little random on this day!):
- 2 types of yoghurt: Coyo and goat’s milk. The reason there is two because I prefer Coyo on sweeter things like porridge or with fruit, and then goat’s milk on savoury meals like curries and salads. I find straight cow’s milk yoghurt a little hard to digest these days. Goat’s milk is a good compromise, plus it’s DELICIOUS.
- Fresh coconut: I have a serious coconut addiction. I add the water to my smoothies most mornings. The carton stuff just isn’t the same. I try and make sure I use the whole coconut too. I usually freeze the flesh i don’t eat and add it to smoothies or banana soft serve.
- Raw Sisterhood sauerkraut: I always have a jar of this in the fridge and eat a spoonful with every meal. I’m usually a Golden Goodness (full of turmeric and ginger) fan, but this week I bought the Pickle Me Pink (full of beets).
- 2 jars of random: I always have countless jars of weird things in my fridge. The top jar is some cold pressed turmeric and ginger juice that I made the day before to add to teas and hot almond milk drinks. The bottom jar is a raspberry chia pudding that I made the night before to have for breakfast with some Coyo and probably some activated buckwheat.
- Organic eggs: Always! It’s eggs for days at my house. Soft-boiled, scrambled, poached, in crepes, in banana bread… I couldn’t survive without them.
- Vegemite: You can see the yellow lid peeking out from over the back. I love the stuff, I can’t deny it! Vegemite and avocado on sourdough with a poached egg on top is my idea of breakfast heaven.
- Orchard St Turmeric Kefir: I’m surprised this was in the fridge, they never last more than 2 minutes once i buy them. I’m fortunate enough to live a 5 minute walk from Orchard Street elixir bar in Bondi, I must have planned ahead this day and had one ready to go for an afternoon pick me-up.
- Organic veggies: I actually couldn’t get my veggie crisper in shot here, but my fridge is usually full of lots of vegetables. Although I end to buy as I need it these days. I was sick of getting to the end of the week and finding I wasn’t able to get through everything. Its such a waste. I’m lucky that my local grocer has such a wide selection of organic fruit and veg.
Quick Q&A with The Inspired Table
Q: Why do you think it is important to maintain a healthy weight?
A: “I think we place too much emphasis on weight, size and body shape. When I’m working with my clients and they come to me with weight issues I think it’s really important to shift the focus from a desired weight range or dress size and ask them what being healthy would feel like to them. What would it feel like to have boundless energy, have a clear head, sharp mind, restful sleeps, glowing skin and improved self-esteem? How would it affect their job, relationships, family and hobbies? There are so many varying degrees of “healthy”, but if somebody can say that they’re nourishing their bodies with nutrient-rich foods, moving their bodies with regular exercise and taking the time for self-care and stress management then being “healthy” has the ability to transform peoples lives.”
