Celebrity Trainer Heidi Powell show us what's in her fridge - Learn more at https://heidipowell.net/1943

Ever wonder what the Powell Pack piles in their fridge? While this does change often, depending on what ?kick? we are on or how long we are in town, this list and picture pretty much sums up our staple cold items.

I bet you?re wondering if I actually went shopping for foods for these pics, or if I had to clean out some of the bad stuff. Believe it or not, our fridge looks like this MOST of the time. I will admit though ? I did do a slight reorganization before I snapped the shot ?. With so many hands in and out all day long, it rarely looks this neat!

So ?what is in your fridge? you ask? Here you go!

  • Almond Milk, vanilla unsweetened: Tons of it. We only have 4 in there right now, but we usually stock no less than 6-8!
  • Naked Juice, Green Machine :Cash?s new favorite drink, and one of my all-time favorites. We guzzle this stuff when we don?t have time to juice.
  • Water: I ALWAYS keep one cold bottle of water in the fridge for my protein shakes?and get so upset when the kids take this out to drink and leave it out. There is nothing worse than a warm protein shake! But nothing better than a cold one. πŸ˜‰
  • Pineapple: Or ?ap-o? as Cash calls it. Pre-cut makes it more convenient for us to eat.
  • Strawberries: We only have one container in this pic, but a few days ago there were three. Berries are SO low in calories and high in antioxidants! We usually also stock blue and blackberries. Mmmm.
  • Corn Tortillas: A staple around here.
  • Cilantro Jalepeno Hummus: We rarely buy hummus, but Matix tried a sample in Trader Joe’s the other day and was hooked!
  • Apple Sauce, unsweetened: Entire family favorite. And great for baking!
  • Prunes: Ummm?these keep us all regular, if you know what I?m sayin?.
  • Avent Bottle with my Secret Formula: Cash IS 2, and Cash STILL drinks a bottle. Hey, it helps him get some incredible nutrition, so I can?t say no!
  • Udo’s 3-6-9 Oil: Ah-mazing! And one of the ingredients in my baby/toddler formula.
  • Carlson?s Cod Liver Oil: CP?s favorite way to talk fish oil. It?s not bad with the lemon infusion.
  • Bod.e Burn (protein energy drink): Addicted. That?s all I?m gonna say. You can?t see the sides of the fridge, but they are LOADED with more cans of Burn.
  • Vemma NEXT, liquid kids vitamins: Yes, these are for the kids, but Chris and I drink them too. ? The most delicious way to get your vitamins. Not to mention totally convenient in the proportioned bottles.
  • Ezekiel Bread, low sodium: For Matix?s lunches. He loves this, thank goodness!
  • Eggs: The incredible, edible, egg. Enough said.
  • Egg Whites: For a recipe, but have some left over. πŸ™‚
  • Mixed Greens, organic: I eat this by the handful. Keeps me fiber-full!
  • Broccoli and Cauliflower, precut and prewashed: Makes veggies easy.
  • Fuji Apples: Can?t go wrong with these, and great for juicing!
  • Lemons: GREAT for juicing too!
  • Apple Slices, prepackaged: We prefer whole apples, but sometimes we need a snack in a hurry! These are perfect.
  • Squeezable Greek Yogurt: Kids love these protein-packed treats!
  • Almonds, raw: The nut that has too many health benefits to name. Oh yeah, and they taste amazing.
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese: We don?t use often, but is great to have around for extra flavor every now and then. πŸ™‚
  • Nitrate-Free Deli Turkey, low sodium: Yummy in salads!

What?s in YOUR fridge???

  1. you are inspiring my refrig makeover. Do you have any word on when we can get the BODE Burn again? My energy level fell when I ran out! I am addicted to it!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Naked juice is not real juice! all sugar and not real juice. Please do your research. It’s owned by pepsi.

    Just juice real veggies! (organic, non gmo)

  3. Wow… I trout we were doing pretty good, but it looks like we need to minimize whats in our fridge. We always have fruits and vegetables , cheese, nitrate free lunch meat, but we have tons more πŸ™‚

  4. Heidi I have Chris’ book, does he have a video of the different excercises. It would make it easier for me to do.
    Thanks, Mary Chandler

  5. This may be a super-silly question, but how do you get off of sweets?? I eat a lot of fruit (all the “erries”), I start the day with a greens smoothie, and no matter how stuffed my lunch bag is with good stuff, by the end of the day I’ve ingested enough junk to give a small town diabetes πŸ™ Any suggestions would be really appreciated…. Love your site!

    1. Hi – I had similar issues. I found out my gut bacteria was out of balance and that was driving my cravings ( like every day, constantly thinking about food even right after I had eaten, particularly sweet or carb heavy food. ). I read the candida cute and started taking candida cleanse by Rainbow Light and drinking pau’d arco tea and taking specific probiotics that are good for getting rid of candida (3 pills a day). It has been amazing- basically took 1 week for my cravings to go away and I have dropped 9 lbs in 7 weeks. I’m also going the candida diet, but I must say, the candida cleanse supplement from rainbow light is what slays the cravings. ( I’m not a reviewer and have never received anything form either the book or the candida cleanse manufacturers) Also a ton of other health symptoms have gone away- I feel better than I have for years!

  6. Nice…something to look up to for sure. We have started drinking a lot of naked juice…using it in smoothies and freezer pops and such. Then I just saw they have been sued for false claims of being all natural. Did you see that? What do you think about it? I am concerned but it is so good!

  7. Do you ever purchase frozen fruits? I’ve been buyig frozen unsweetend blueberries. I was wondering if that is healthy

  8. Love getting a sneak peak of what is in a healthy persons fridge and the healthy things I should have in my fridge at all times. Thanks for the fridge pic πŸ™‚

  9. I was glad to read that you did reorganize things before taking the picture! I can’t imagine our fridge staying that organized for long!

  10. For someone working on budget what is a good way to get healthy substitutes to some of the items you have. Its amazing that you are so open with your family and life. Thank you

  11. I feel like we have most of this stuff in our fridge already but maybe its our organization that trips us up. Your fridge looks so appeal and organized. I may have to do some shuffling around. Thanks for the inspiration! πŸ™‚

  12. So inspiring to see some seriously delicious food! Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring!

    And I am very curious about your “Secret Formula”! My little guy is dairy and peanut allergic and still on a bottle too. We have him on hypoallergenic “junior formula” (he’s 20 months) and its soooo expensive. Would love to hear of any nutritious alternatives if you’re willing to share?!

  13. Everything here sounds great, except the prunes, lol. And I love the picture of the fridge. We only have a 22 cu. ft. fridge. We just moved into a new house and it came with a stainless steel fridge. It’s beautiful, but just too small. We can’t buy that much food because it’s too difficult to find anything when it’s full. You have to pull things out to get what’s in the back. We’ve been looking at French Door with the drawer. They are really nice, but we can’t get one until next year. We had budgeted for it when we moved, but my son went off to college and we bought him a used car instead.

  14. How on earth do you keep your fridge so organized??? LOL or is it just like this for the picture? Looks so healthy and I wanted to say, I wanted to order the Bod-E Burn and Vemma, my sister is a brand seller, but, I am in Mexico for 2 years for my husbands job and she could not get any support on trying to find out how to ship it here. Any suggestions? Thank you!!!!

  15. I drink Diamond Brand Almond Coconut milk. I tried the unsweetened but I just don’t like the taste of unsweetened. Is what I’m drinking still ok? I stopped drinking milk a few months ago and I love milk. This seems to be a good alternative. I think?

  16. Can you share how you make the baby formula?? I’d love to eventually try that with my little one πŸ™‚

  17. hi heidi!!! it’s funny i have unsweet almond milk set up just like you do in the fridge! lol i loved this blog! thanks!!

  18. I love food, but only in a healthy way. So just like your fridge mine is similar πŸ™‚ the best way to keep the body and mind close to each other to have a good and healthy meal

  19. My fridge is another story in itself. LOL!!! I’ll leave it at that. But It is filled with Bottled Water. Can’t live without it. Just need to transform mine to have more healtier stuff as I say,than the so called Junk that is in it now, except of course of my Water!!! LOL!!! It’s good to Smile!!! πŸ™‚

  20. It is so helpful to see how healthy and organized your refrigerator is… Even though I know what I should do…it’s hard to get my brain to go along with it. I’ll have to get some of the Almond Milk.

  21. Very cool of you to show the inside of your fridge! Thanks for the details of what is inside too, can’t wait to give a few of your item suggestions a try πŸ™‚

  22. I could learn a great deal from you. Im loving all your posts. Thanks for being so caring and compassionate about peoples healthy life sucess. You both inspire me.

  23. Preparation has to be one of my biggest problems I need to learn to cut up thr veggies and fruit as soon as o bring it home.

  24. Very cool. I have my little guys into Greek yogurt. Those squeezables look like a great choice for back to school

  25. I am a huge fan of naked juice. Its great to add to smoothies πŸ™‚ And egg whites are my favorite breakfast. πŸ™‚

  26. SO far I’ve tried the Ezekiel 4:9 tortillas. They’re pretty yummy haven’t tried the bread yet my Whole Foods was out. We always have fruit in the fridge my daughter (Sophia, 2) loves fruit, wish I could say the same about veggies but we’re getting there.

  27. I absolutely LOVE this blog! I am about 40 lbs more than what Alyssa from episode 3 was when she started so any information and motivation is always welcome. Thank you for sharing.

  28. Love that your kids eat and drink all the healthy goodies. My little guy is 8 and is a very picky eater! He always will try new things, but gags most of the time. He will drink the Naked juice though! You and your husband are so amazing! Thank you for sharing your knowledge! You are changing so many lives.

  29. In my fridge is also, a half gallon of almond milk.
    Cucumbers, Peppers, Zucchini, Tomatoes, Green Beans, & fresh herbs all from my garden. Broccoli, cauliflower, avocado, green apples, spaghetti squash, spinach, strawberries, shredded cheddar cheese, bacon, homemade pickles, mayo, butter, cooked chicken thighs, turkey breast, American cheese, and the one SUPER bad thing I can’t seem to give up Flavored coffee cream by Coffeemate. I do share the fridge with my highly active skinny boyfriend who doesn’t follow any plan other then he eats when he’s hungry and grills Everything!!

  30. if I’m going to do this right I need to throw away half the stuff in my refrigerator. I can’t wait to start living a healthier lifestyle.

  31. I love that you posted this! I was just thinking the other day I wonder what the Powell’s have in their fridge and panty!

  32. I am pretty sure I have the EXACT same fridge! Mine is usually full of almond milk, fish oil, salsa, eggs, canadian bacon, thawing chicken, spinach, kale, vinaigrettes, cheese sticks, lettuce, baby carrots, extra cold water, greek yogurt, and whatever fruits or veggies I decide to try that week. πŸ™‚

  33. Great info on some healthy staples to keep in the refrigerator. Do you have any suggestions for kids lunches? My kids will be packing lunch for the first time this year.
    Thank you, Lauren

  34. My boyfriend and I are big fans and were just talking about how cool it would be to know exactly what was in your guys fridge! I hope that doesn’t sound creepy. We just look up to you guys.

  35. Great tips! It’s always a lot easier to eat healthy when the whole house is on board! πŸ™‚

  36. My fridge is very similar but we also have 2 college sons. They are aware of health – working out (Crossfit) & nutrition but they enjoy “fun” foods too. So, we have a little of that in our fridge & pantry. It’s okay to splurge as long as you are fully aware & recover regularly. Right?

  37. I come from an Asian family so my fridge looks nothing like yours except for the eggs, fruits and the veggies. When I go to university I plan on ditching the white rice and start eating more lean protein and complex carbohydrates and hopefully make my fridge look somewhat similar to yours. Thanks for sharing!

  38. I have the Bod=e burn and the fruit and some low fat turkey. Non fat milk rather than the almond milk. I will have to work on my fridge a bit..lol. I would like to have a chance to win Heidi’s book. God Bless your family and all the amazing things you do. Continued much success, you have my prayers and support. Jeff

  39. WOW!!! this makes me realize just how cluttered my fridge is and how many unhealthy things I have in it!!!!!

  40. Thank you for sharing this with us…..it really gives a good idea what to keep as convenient choices to stay on track.

  41. You don’t even want to see a picture of my fridge! There’s such a hodge-podge of stuff in there. Some mine. Some my room mate’s. Some healthy. Some…not-so-much. It’s hard when you live with someone who has very different tastes.

  42. Would love to know what you keep in pantry and freezer. I’m working on keeping better choices on hand. It’s hard since I don’t go shopping that often and have to worry about fresh produce going bad.

  43. I am getting there! Step by step I am modeling you and learning at the same time! Thank you for all that you do!!

  44. Thank you for posting. I always like to try new products. I like herbalife’s energy drink- liftoff but I’m always up for trying something new. I can’t wait to try burn (protein energy drink).

  45. How do you feel about the Naked drinks now that they are deemed “not natural”? I occasionally would drink them but not I’m not sure if I should just stay away all together?

  46. Thanks for sharing. We always have almond milk, lemon juice, eggs, yogurt and deli turkey. (not sure that it is nitrate free though) I agree with Lindsey. I would love to know what is in your pantry.

  47. This is a great post & great ideas for starters for everyone! I always use the money excuse for not eating healthy but sometimes I realize in the end it will balance out, cookies, chips and fast food all add up! Especially since it takes more to keep you full! Im trying to increase my protein intake again to curb my appetite! Thanks Heidi & Chris you guys are awesome & its amazing to see you involve your kids too, it def helps us parents see that it is possible!

  48. I love following you and your husband. Do you find it hard keeping your kids interested in sticking with foods that are good for them. Do you have any tips for those kids who prefer pizza over green beans?? I admit that I don’t make much money so my choice of food at first with her was bad. I recently realized you can eat healthy on a budget to but I am having a hard time getting her to change her view.

  49. When you guys are choosing your fruits and veggies, do you choose organically grown? What are your thoughts on the benefits of organic over commercially grown produce?

  50. Thank you SO much for sharing what’s in your fridge πŸ™‚ I think everyone loves a sneak peek into what other people eat. It gives lots of inspiration and some guidance.

  51. We have apples, cantaloupe, watermelon, asparagus, mixed greens, eggs (good source of protein), almond butter, almond milk, coconut milk, tons of water, thin sliced chicken breast (great for salads), flax seeds, walnuts and grapes. Also have unsweetened applesauce, like you to eat and to bake with.

  52. This was one of my favorite things to read. It gives great tips on what’s healthy. Plus, I enjoy reading about what your kids love so I can try it on my 3 year old son. Thanks for posting this Heidi!

  53. Thank you so much for this post!! Lately I feel like I’ve hit a brick wall as far as my eating goes. I feel like I’m eating the same things over and over and over…and that is when I end up ordering a pizza! Thanks again for being so open and honest! Truly helps!

  54. Thanks for sharing! I just moved out of my mom’s house and was always frustrated with what she kept in her fridge! From cookies in the pantry to ice cream in the freezer it just made me feel unhealthy! But now that I’m living on my own I try to keep apples, grapes, salads, fruit juice and healthy snacks in my fridge! Thanks for being such an inspiration!

  55. Wow! Some of the items I can see us eating but my dear husband is a picky eater and most of the healthier stuff he wouldn’t touch with a 10′ pole! LOL Question for ya, how do you get picky lil ones to change their way of eating? I seen some of your recipes where other ingredients were added instead of the usual (like in the mac n cheese). Is there a big taste difference in those recipes? BTW, Love the layout of the fridge!

  56. I love this post! I’ve wanted to start taking fish oil, but I never know what to buy. I am going to get some of what y’all have and try it. Thanks for posting this!

  57. It was so cool to see what’s in your fridge. Since I babysit for my trainer I know what’s in his fridge. Yours is far healthier!

  58. Love this! It’s nice to see what is in your frig.
    I would love to see a sneak peek of what the Powell Pack eats for meals in a given week

  59. How do ya’ll drink that much almond milk before it goes bad??? Once you open it, isn’t it only good for a week?

    I’m only 17 and I’m really trying to live healthy and I am really interested in fitness even though I don’t always apply what I learn to my life (hehehe). Can you give some healthy tips for students who still have to eat what their parents make for dinner?

  60. This is my favorite of your blog posts. I love seeing what you and your family are eating! I am, however, a bit jealous that your fridge is so much cleaner than mine! Thanks for posting…gives me some great ideas. πŸ™‚

  61. I loved reading ” What’s in My Fridge!” This help me know what bad foods where in my fridge that I needed to get rid of and and what types of good foods I needed to add to my fridge to begin to lead a healthier lifestyle by only eating foods that are good for me.Thank you for sharing “What’s your Fridge!”

  62. I liked the What’s In Your Fridge. I wanted to see if we matched up at all and we do on a lot of things. We use almond milk in our morning smoothies. Great to see I’m on track. Now, strangely to say, if I could get myself to actually EAT that’d be even better. Thank you guys so much for all the motivation and inspiration!

  63. This is soo my favorite post! I aspire to have my refrigerator look like yours! I love your advice for families wanting to healthy and live active lives. I feel so privileged and proud to live in the same state as you. Thank you!

  64. I am picking this blog to comment on because I do have some questions for you about your shopping habits. But also to try to win Chris’ autographed book Choose More Lose More for Life.

    1) What do you spend on a weekly average for your food?
    2) What kind of stores do you shop at for your food?
    3) Where do you find Ezekiel Bread?


  65. This is my second favorite post on your blog because I am always curious what foods you buy. I have 15 of the foods from this list somewhere in my kitchen, or a variation of them.

  66. Besides using the Udo’s 3-6-9 oil in the baby/toddler formula, how else do you use it? I would love to incorporate this into my daily routine. Thanks!

  67. For the low budget, a garden is a must, if you can’t garden, joining a good co-op is another option. Being “poor” is actually great for losing weight. My husband was put on furlough through sequester and I lost 11 out of a total 60 that I need to lose because we can’t eat out and I have to work hard in the garden.

  68. I’d also love to hear what is in your baby formula…looking to transition my daughter from breast milk as well. Thank you!

  69. I know you have people that read these things for you, but what do you do on a tight budget? It’s so much easier to make a meal for $2 with carbs and sugar-filled tomato sauce than it is to have a well-balanced dinner. I am about 200 lbs overweight and I resort to the cheap fast meals which have led to a 100 lb weight gain over 3 years and holding steady for about 4 years now. I am a single mom of 2 very busy boys (my oldest seems to be a bottomless pit these days-he’s 10) and by the time I get home from work it’s about 2 hours to bedtime. What is the secret to eating well on a minimal budget…I mean like under $30 a week?

    1. A tight budget can be a challenge. Sometimes we just have to do the best we can with what we have. Instead of going for high end health food start simple. For example, fruits and vegetables to replace chips, cookies, and ice cream. Good luck!

  70. In my fridge: filtered water, almond milk, eggs, artichokes, peppers, cauliflower, mixed greens, asparagus, tomatoes, avocado,8 grain and seed bread.

  71. This was great to read for ideas! Mine could use a little work πŸ˜‰ I am also stocked with Bode Burn and Vemma. Still have to try those shakes, I have heard nothing but good feedback. Thanks for sharing!

  72. I love that you showed what was in your fridge! What is in your pantry? This is where we struggle with the processed foods.

  73. I wish I could be this organized. Being born in the south, I have an affinity for all foods unhealthy. I realize at 38 years of age and numerous surgeries later, I can’t continue to eat like this. I have just started to shop at Trader Joe’s. I am trying to make healthier choices. My goal is to lose 100 pounds in a year. I am so happy to have found your site. I am sure I can learn a lot. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with me. I am in desperate need of guidance. πŸ™‚

  74. I was wondering if you could tell me how you make your infant toddler formula? I have a 10 month old that has been breastfed exclusively. I have been looking for an alternative to straight whole milk or formula for when I stop nursing her.

  75. Really awesome post. I am trying to lose a ton of weight and have a lot of these items in my fridge. How important is it that my lunch meat is free of nitrates? Is that the same thing as sodium?

  76. in my fridge..unsweet almondmilk, eggs, bacon, ground chicken and beef, baby carrots, spinach, half an avocado, mayo and hot sauce!

  77. yum! hmm.. almond milk (unsweetened), eggs, lean ground beef & chicken, baby carrots, spinach, half an avocado, homemade mayo, and hot sauce πŸ™‚
