Ten On Tuesday...

I hope Carole doesn't mind if I jump in once in awhile with Ten on Tuesday? I don't do it every week, as many times I can't relate (the camping thing? nope)...

But this week is 10 things in your refrigerator right now, and oh, let me tell you I can do that!
1. Kefir (there's just a bit left in the container, but this is my go-to item when I get off work at 4:30 and have an evening yoga class. I can't have dinner till after the class, and a cup of this lovely stuff doesn't weigh me down, adds calcium to my "older" bones, and keeps my sugar up till after the class, when I then have...
2. Cottage cheese and fruit - today it's cantelope, but it's often berries of one sort or another, and sometimes black grapes and kiwi. This is frequently the dinner (snack?) I eat after yoga.
3. Yogurt (which I eat with Special K Low-fat Granola for breakfast every morning).
4. Vermont (Hunters) Extra Sharp Cheddar (there is nothing else when it comes to cheddar). I only have this around occasionally, but when we visited VT in August, I made sure I brought some back. It's super high in fat content, so I'm very judicious about using it (besides, I savor it). There's a reason it's encased in black wax - it's extremely sharp cheese. (From Grafton Village, but I like Cabot's Seriously Sharp, too)
5. Skim Milk - We made the switch in the 70s, when I was a teenager and my dad had his first heart attack. I've loved milk since I was a kid and drinking it was routine, until I was in my 30s and 40s when I didn't drink it at all. I had the dumb idea that it made me fat...hmm, I was fat - okay, "fluffy" the entire time I wasn't drinking it (it should have told me something!). Like most "women of a certain age" my calcium is a precious commodity. Now I know that keeping dairy in my diet (yes, I'm lucky I'm not lactose-intolerant) helps me keep the weight OFF! (And my blood pressure down, but that's another story...)
:)
6. Sandwich Thins: by any brand, but I do like Arnold's best. 100 calories, I use the whole wheat variety for my sandwiches. At 1 Weight Watcher point, this is very very friendly bread, and it's also very tasty...
7. Deli turkey breast (another WW friendly item) - for the Sandwich Thins
8. Gulden's Spicy Mustard...(another theme! I adore my turkey sandwiches)
9. Fresh greens. Right now, I've got baby lettuces, but I do spinach and mesclun mix, too. I put it in my sandwiches (you saw that coming, right?) and I make big dinner salads. If I have spinach, I tend to do fruit salads (see #2 above) and toss in
10. Feta (with the Light Raspberry Walnut dressing from Ken's) and English Walnuts.

I'm only beginning to touch on dinner when I bring up that salad. There's lots more in my freezer and in my cabinets that make up dinner. I suspect from what Carole said in her post today? We might see that come up later in other Ten on Tuesday lists!

btw...I don't get anything from any of these folks I've listed here...I'm just sharing my favorites!

All I know is there is never anything to eat in my refrigerator, no matter what's in it. :)

Good stuff in the frig!
I love a really sharp cheddar. It makes a really good tomato/grilled cheese sandwich.

Kefir is my bedtime drink these days. It is almost a milk shake to me, except maybe better because it isn't so sweet. Trader Joe's does a good job of it.

Sounds like a fridge full of good stuff! I'm with you on the cheddar, by the way, the sharper the better, and better to have a little of the good stuff than more of the fake stuff :)

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
