Habits of Healthy Eaters: Organize the Fridge and Freezer

Habits of Healthy Eaters: Organize the Fridge and Freezer

By Chef Meg Galvin, Healthy Cooking Expert at

You've started cooking at home, and you stick to the perimeter of the store when grocery shopping. You even measure portions. So why are so many of us wasting healthy food and reaching for takeout menus?

Open your fridge and freezer, and the answer might be simpler than you think. If you're spending good money on healthy food, but your fridge and freezer are messy and disorganized, it's going to make healthy cooking more of a chore.

In the videos below, I share my tips for keeping my fridge and freezer organized. Every night, at least one of my boys has a sporting event, academic club meeting, or some other activity.
