See what a health & lifestyle coach keeps in her fridge

Take a sneak peek inside Claire Grieve's fridge.

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but we like to think that the contents of a fridge can say a whole lot more about a person (read: are you a sweet or savoury tooth?) That’s why we asked Claire Grieve, LA-based yoga expert and health and lifestyle coach, if we could take a peek inside her fridge.

From her must-have fruit and vegetables to her tried-and-true sweet treat, Claire reveals all.

Inside Claire Grieve’s fridge

My food philosophy is very simple; eat real, nutritious food. I am vegan so the majority of my diet (and kitchen) is made up of organic fruit, veggies, nuts and grains. I try to avoid gluten, dairy and processed foods. What we put inside our bodies reflects on the outside, so I believe it’s important to feed yourself with love and nourish your body with whole foods.

1Organic Fresh Produce

My fridge is filled with fresh organic fruit and veggies that I buy at local farmers markets. Expect to see all the colours of the rainbow. I like to keep them fresh for snacks and meals, and frozen for smoothies. I always pick whatever is in-season, but some of favourites include; blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, banana, mango, acai, spinach, kale, avocados, cucumber, broccoli, zucchini, cauliflower, asparagus, and sweet potato.

2Organic Deli

I love visiting Erewhon’s organic deli section. It is filled with delicious salads and hot foods like kale/quinoa/squash, rice/veggie, lentil salads, baked yams, and zucchini pasta. I like to stock up on these easy grab-and-go options for when I’m on the road teaching yoga clients.

3Drinks

Vanilla almond and hemp milk are my go-to dairy alternatives. I also buy Harmless Harvest Organic Coconut Water for an electrolyte boost and Kreation cold pressed organic juices. You’ll always find apple cider vinegar in my fridge as I have a spoonful with meals or as a salad dressing.

4Superfoods

I always add superfoods into my smoothies so they’re staples in my kitchen. Chia seeds, coconut oil, flax oil, gogi, spirulina, bee pollen, E3 live, almond butter and super greens are all jam-packed with flavour and nutrients.

5Snacks

For an energy boost during the day I’ll snack on chia seed puddings (grab a recipe here), Elemental Superfood Bars and coconut date balls.

6Sweet Treats

My freezer always has a few tubs of Coconut Bliss non-dairy ice cream for my sweet tooth fix.

I take a high quality, dairy-free probiotic for digestive health every day.
