On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I take you into my kitchen and share the best fitness foods to get lean, as well as showing exactly what’s in my fridge and cabinets.
I also show you what supplements I bring into my home and consume on a regular basis.
It’s hard to believe, that after over 150 posts, I still haven’t showed you the exact foods and supplements that I keep in my fridge and kitchen cabinets.
Sure the “What’s in my fridge” post may be a fitness cliche, but lets do it anyway.
This edition of Freestyle Friday, is all about me showing you the best fitness foods to get lean, from my new kitchen.
These muscle building and fat burning foods are all Live Lean approved.
If you follow @LiveLeanTV on Instagram, you probably already see a lot of the meals that we prepare.
With all that said, it’s time to come join me in my kitchen.
Let’s jump in and check out what’s in my fridge.
Before filming the episode, I haven’t really looked in or organized what’s in my fridge.
So this is what it truly looks like.
I love eating apples with almond butter.
Usually I go with raw almond butter, but since the roasted almond butter was on sale at a very cheap price, sometimes a good deal wins.
Also, since I annihilate almond butter, I bought 3 jars of it.
I have some marinara sauce that is made with olive oil.
Always check the ingredients list to make sure your sauce does not contain soybean oil.
If you’ve seen my post on how to make easy healthy slow cooker recipes, this is the type of marinara sauce that I used.
By now, you probably know that I love my hot sauce.
I use sriracha hot sauce and add it to pretty much everything.
I also love dijon mustard and always stay fully stocked with salsa.
Lastly, for my dog Peyton, I have some omega 3 fish oil from Ascenta, that is specifically formulated for dogs.
Peyton loves it when I add this to his breakfast in the morning.
It’s great for his fur, joints, and overall health.
I also stock my fridge full of vegetables including:
If you couldn’t tell from the big bag of broccoli, I add broccoli to a lot of my meals.
For protein, even though I have egg whites, I prefer to eat the whole egg.
However, sometimes when I just want throw together a quick high protein snack, I may just go with egg whites.
A few of my other favorite protein sources are ground turkey, chicken breast, grass fed beef, and steak.
I usually buy chicken breasts and steak in bulk, then portion them out into baggies, then store some in the fridge, and freeze the rest.
I also love to make meatballs out of grass fed beef.

If you want to see how I made these meatballs, I shared the recipe over on my @BradGouthro Instagram page.
When it comes to drinks in my fridge, I usually keep it pretty basic with the following:
I always drink a lot of water.
Let’s check out what’s in my freezer.
I usually buy meat in bulk, so when I haven’t already prepared it, I store most of it in the freezer.
I love to use chicken thighs, stewed beef, and pork tenderloin in my slow cooker recipes.
You can also use frozen shrimp in this quick and healthy snack recipe from Brad’s Cookbook.
Yes, more vegetables.
I like to have a bag of frozen vegetables in the freezer in case I run out of fresh vegetables.
Finally, a freezer wouldn’t be complete without Grey Goose.
Let’s check out what’s in my cabinets.
I have a fruit bowl where I keep some bananas, and of course lemons, for my morning lemon water.
If you buy the whole pineapple, you have to remove the skin and core it, but sometimes you just have to get your hands dirty.
My cabinets are not just filled with food though.
In my other cabinets I have:
Canned tuna can be used to make you an occasional high protein quick snack.
For healthy fats, I also store bags of various nuts, such as walnuts, hazelnuts, and almonds.
Lets not forget about avocados, and one of my favorites, coconut oil.
I love the taste of coconut.
You can buy many different types of coconut oil, but I prefer buying unrefined coconut oil, rather than refined, since it tastes like coconut.
I also store more almond milk and green tea in my cabinets.
I try to have a green tea every day.
Then we have all the spices lined up in my spice rack.
My favorite spices include:
All good stuff.
The last little bit of food that I have in my kitchen pantry includes:
Did you miss the tasty bacon wrapped dates that I posted on my @BradGouthro Instagram page the other day?

I also have some instant coffee that I occasionally add to this iced protein coffee recipe for a little energy boost.
Then we have some of my supplements.
So not only am I feeding my dog omega 3 fish oil, I’m feeding myself fish oils too.
We take care of each other.
So that is all the food in my kitchen, and what I pretty much eat on a daily basis.

Protein is what I surround my plate with.
Whether it’s fish, chicken, turkey, or steak, I build my meals around that protein source.
You also saw that I have a lot of vegetables in my diet, then I top that off with healthy fats.
These healthy fats come from nuts, avocados, coconut oil, and olive oil.
Then when I need it post workout, that’s where I add in some complex carbohydrates like sweet potatoes, and simple sugars from fruit for my post-workout shake.
So that is my kitchen.
Welcome to my world.
