What does your fridge look like? Here's mine. I'd be interested in seeing what's in between your fridge doors. I think this really helps people out to see examples and see the various things that grace our tongues.

Thanks for the recommendation on Slanker's. I live in the Dallas area, so I'll definitely be placing an order soon!

I ordered quite a bit of sirloin tips from US Wellness. I've cooked them seven ways to Sunday, and they are tough, even when I have leave them blue centered. I've read the "low and slow" information, but still haven't had much success. Probably my fault for ordering sirloin, but that's what the budget allowed. Be sure and post what you think of Slanker's, Jack. I'm in Okla, so ordering from them would be easy for me. Thanks.

Nice man! And you are looking shredded in your new gravatar. Are you worried about the mileage on that beef though? I really am tempted by Slanker's and US Wellness, but living in NYC I just can't justify the distance in terms of fossil fuels expended for it to reach me. I'd much rather buy from an upstate farmer, but of course I'd need to move out of my tiny studio apartment to have room for a freezer...

as to how best to fill out my order to get the largest discount. When you buy 1/4 cow, they do a split 1/4 which is nice--you some cuts from the front of the cow and some cuts from the back of the cow for a nice balanced selection for $695. They called me back when some items that I ordered were unavailable and she made suggestions for replacements. They called me again to let me know my order had shipped, and then called again the next day when my order was delayed for one day due to UPS issue. My order arrived within three days, still frozen solid, everything neatly labeled.

Jack, so far everything that I have cooked has been delicious-ground beef, minute steaks, sirloin tip roast, ribeyes, and unbelievable buffalo tenderloin (omg $30/lb but fantastic). Today I cooked a GF Pork butt ham (smoked uncured) and it was very tender and tasted like no other pork I have ever had. Their customer service is way above average. My experience: I called and left a message on Saturday, they called me back on Sunday morning and she took about 20 minutes on the phone to help me out as I had never bought a cow before. Answered all of my questions, and made suggestions...

upload a pic to an image host (ex: photobucket.com). then when you are in your 'edit answer' box, click the "image" button next to the 101010 (code sample) button. paste the full image html code into the box. Click "Ok". The image should show up in the preview.

Leah - I've read almost everything on Slanker's site. Fanatical dude for sure. Always considered ordering, but never pulled the trigger. You photo here now has me seriously considering it. Is the meat really good? Are you pleased with your decision? Is there ANYTHING you'd like to tell me about the 1/4 cow? Anything at all? Thanks :)

@WordVixen Yep that's Kerrygold, it's interesting because all those bars on the outside say "made with pastured milk", it normally doesn't have that on the outside, so I wonder if it's seasonal.

Thanks! We've got a bigger garden this year, so we intend to do a lot more canning and freezing. I hope that if I take this picture a year from now, you'll see a lot fewer store packages, especially for vegetables and fermented foods like pickles. I'm even growing mustard, so maybe that'll be homemade too!

My husband also still eats SAD. Luckily, I do most of the cooking and, while I'll cook stuff that I know he wants (rice-a-roni, etc), it only makes it in the house if he specifically requests it. And I only buy one box at a time...8)

Actually while chocolate and red wine are not off limits, I don't eat or drink it but once and a blue moon, that's the misses stuff as well as the olives and minced beef. I prefer a shot of vodka and room temp chocolate.

@W8liftinmom I used to eat quite a bit of broccoli, spinach, onions and other veggies, then one week I decided that green stuff didn't make sense except in a survival situation. Roots, fruits, animals, and exploiting animals on the other hand make perfect sense to me. I just couldn't see myself choosing a bunch of spinach over a sweet potato or glass of milk given the choice.

Just a hint, you shouldnt store chocolate too cold. I think about 60 degrees F is optimal according to chocolatiers.

Dangit. You beat me to it! I was gonna do this. Nice job Ed. I'll post mine someday after I fill it up real nice. Hey that's A LOT of freakin butter dude. You need to put some of that in the freezer. It keeps perfectly and thaws in the fridge in just a couple hours, and on the counter in less than an hour from frozen. Cool looking stuff though. Thanks for sharing!

My freezer: 1/4 GF cow from Slanker's in Paris Tx, along with some of their pork chops, a couple of hams, some free range chickens. Quite a bit of venison, and a bunch of Halibut and Lamb. Notice the wedding cake top in the bottom!

Jack, so far everything that I have cooked has been delicious-ground beef, minute steaks, sirloin tip roast, ribeyes, and unbelievable buffalo tenderloin (omg $30/lb but fantastic). Today I cooked a GF Pork butt ham (smoked uncured) and it was very tender and tasted like no other pork I have ever had. Their customer service is way above average. My experience: I called and left a message on Saturday, they called me back on Sunday morning and she took about 20 minutes on the phone to help me out as I had never bought a cow before. Answered all of my questions, and made suggestions...

as to how best to fill out my order to get the largest discount. When you buy 1/4 cow, they do a split 1/4 which is nice--you some cuts from the front of the cow and some cuts from the back of the cow for a nice balanced selection for $695. They called me back when some items that I ordered were unavailable and she made suggestions for replacements. They called me again to let me know my order had shipped, and then called again the next day when my order was delayed for one day due to UPS issue. My order arrived within three days, still frozen solid, everything neatly labeled.

Is the meat really good? Are you pleased with your decision? Is there ANYTHING you'd like to tell me about the 1/4 cow? Anything at all? Thanks :)

Most of this is pretty self explanatory:

Top row: grapes, strawberries, butternut squash, some other squash?

Middle row: celery, cucumber, zucchini, greens, carrots, spinach, mushrooms, balsamic

Bottom row: Tzatski sauce, sour cream, grass fed ground beef

Not pictured: butter, mustard, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, lime juice

I'm afraid this picture (from a few months ago) is misleading, because I'm temporarily eating a mix of paleo and whatever the heck I want, including most recently red velvet cupcakes.

We also ordered some grass fed pork side bacon (2 lbs) and some smoked beef bacon. (2 lbs)

Bottom shelf in the pic is some grass fed roasts from Whole Foods.

It's not as cool as Leah's pic, but hey! this entire freezer is fully grass fed - Legit!

Nice man! And you are looking shredded in your new gravatar. Are you worried about the mileage on that beef though? I really am tempted by Slanker's and US Wellness, but living in NYC I just can't justify the distance in terms of fossil fuels expended for it to reach me. I'd much rather buy from an upstate farmer, but of course I'd need to move out of my tiny studio apartment to have room for a freezer...

I ordered quite a bit of sirloin tips from US Wellness. I've cooked them seven ways to Sunday, and they are tough, even when I have leave them blue centered. I've read the "low and slow" information, but still haven't had much success. Probably my fault for ordering sirloin, but that's what the budget allowed. Be sure and post what you think of Slanker's, Jack. I'm in Okla, so ordering from them would be easy for me. Thanks.

I'll be brave and post a messy fridge to compare to all these neat freaks'. Contents listed below, top to bottom, left to right.

what-does-your-fridge-look-like?

The freezer is really packed right now because we had an electrical problem and had to empty one of our other freezers in a hurry, and I haven't moved everything back yet. But some things you can see on the left are frozen vegetables (mostly organic), leftover chicken bones being saved for stock, raspberries that we picked and froze last year, old chicken giblets that will become dog food, frozen shrimp and cod, ground beef, and a bag of carob powder. (Dunno if carob is paleo, but my wife seems to have a strong gut reaction to chocolate, so she's trying that.) On the right is mostly non-paleo stuff from our "how can we have bread and pastries without wheat" days, that we need to just feed to the chickens.

In the fridge, the worst non-paleo offender is probably the Velveeta. My wife (not quite as focused on paleo as I am) still likes that for a cheesy soup she makes. Then there are a bunch of leftovers: swiss steak, cooked chicken, steak, etc. There's an attempt at bacon grease mayonnaise in there, but that needs work; it had too much stale lard smell. Next shelf has eggs from our backyard, yogurt, meat thawing for the next couple meals, and more leftovers. Below that, home-grown/canned tomato sauce, cheddar, more eggs, chicken stock, and raw milk. In the bottom, some vegetables and fruits that may even get eaten before they go bad.

Not much significant in the door, mostly condiments like mustard, plus dill pickles, butter, cream cheese, and wine for cooking. I think the apple juice is for coating sliced apples so they don't get brown on the way to the party; we certainly don't drink it.

There's not a lot of meat because we've got a full-sized freezer in the basement that takes care of that. Just put 160 pounds of pork in it last week.

Thanks! We've got a bigger garden this year, so we intend to do a lot more canning and freezing. I hope that if I take this picture a year from now, you'll see a lot fewer store packages, especially for vegetables and fermented foods like pickles. I'm even growing mustard, so maybe that'll be homemade too!

well, i posted the pictures on facebook. im just going to write out here whats in there and you'll have to trust me. sherpamelissa can vouch for me. ;) keep in mind that while i do the bulk of the cooking and shopping, my kids and husband are not paleo.

in the door: lots of hot sauces, curry pastes, miso dressing, kerrygold butter, rose water, maple syrup, olives, habanero-infused maple syrup, miscellaneous sticky shit on everything. oh! and tomato paste, ginger, lemongrass, citrus oils, and mason jars with various pickles. top shelf: antibiotics for E (my son who has a raging double ear infection) and kefir for his tum-tum, heavy cream, baby aruglua, green grapes, whole milk, 10% milkfat greek yogurt. in back are some jars of salsas and cranberry chutney. two chickens for roasting, leftover bacon, brussels and saurkraut in back, bacon fat for cooking in the small mason jar, eggs (local in the cardboard, omega-3 pete and jerrys in the plastic for hard boiling). and portabella mushrooms! and fresh rosemary! pastured pork lard, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, avocado, chicken legs, gluten-free beer in back. in drawer- raw blanched almonds, raw organic cheddar cheese, marscapone, corn tortillas, and wild smoked salmon in the back. bottom shelf- lots of kale, purple cabbage, pack of green beans and leftover green curry in back. REALLY leftover.... more veggies: beets, lemons, cauliflower, cranberries, carrots, celery, spinach, etc....

and in the freezer: wild salmon fillets, shrimp, grilled chicken breast, 30 pounds of grass fed beef, gallons of roasted squash puree, quarts of beef and chicken stock. in the downstairs freezer is a bunch of pastured lamb, pastured pork and a couple of pastured turkeys.

and on the counter is WINE.

ETA: i uploaded the picture, then it disappeared. cant seem to get it up again. youre just going to have to use your imagination, i guess.

Top door shelf, Garlic puree, Tomato puree (not visible)

Lime juice, Peppadew jarred peppers, mini jarred pickles. Olive oil, avocado oil, macadamia oil.

Locally made pesto, wholegrain mustard, Grated parmasan.

Lower door shelf: Heinz mayonaisse (the boyfriend's, he doesn't like my homemade stuff!), balsamic dressing and milk

Then main fridge is organic farmed smoked salmon, I actually know where they farm this on the atlantic coast and as farmed goes it's pretty good. Kale, cream, duck fat, local honey, brazil nuts, beetroot, olives, thai red curry paste, CLO, soda water and gouda.

Freezer: what-does-your-fridge-look-like?

Some frozen lamb stock, packet wild salmon, more wild salmon, wild mackerel, Frozen plums a friend grew that are too bitter to eat but I keep meaning to turn into chutney. Packet of stir fry veggies and some left over beef massaman curry.

There are also some nice little gluten free english muffins that are made of rice and tapioca flour. I have one once a fortnight as a treat with tonnes of butter as they do shocking things to my blood sugar in large quantities!

Assuming I understand you correctly: Is it a stereotype that Germans have neat refrigerators?

OMG. I think if y'all could see in my fridge/freezer and pantry you would kick me out of Paleo Hacks!

Oh well.....

My family still eats SAD, so my food is there, but overshadowed by the other.

Top shelf: Organic celery hearts, green onions, head of cabbage, melon rinds (for the guinea pigs), bag o'bacon, gallon of 2% milk

2nd shelf: Juice box, Capri sun, almond butter, coleslaw, jar o'bacon fat, mayo

1st drawer: Low sodium pastrami, cream cheese, Oscar Mayer turkey, Organic Valley butter, regular store butter

3rd shelf: Yogurt, Pudding cups, donuts, Instant Breakfast, Rubbermaid container of butternut squash

4th shelf: Diet Pepsi & Bottled Water

2nd drawer: pastured eggs raw and hard-boiled, sour cream, shredded cheeses

3rd drawer: CHOCOLATE, of all kinds. My daughter is a chocolate addict.

Door: Wine, Watermelon Juice, Hershey Syrup, Condiments, Caffeinated water, Diet Mtn Dew, Powerade, Organic Heavy Cream

Damn. I'm not even going to discuss the rest. I hope to someday wean them off these foods, but mostly my husband thinks I'm nuts with a food obsession, so it's not likely.

LOVE IT, LEAH. I could be embarrassed, but mostly I am impressed that I can avoid all of that stuff even when it is right in front of me.

What if, god forbid, your house was burglerized? And they took all the neolithic food?? Your husband might have to temporarily eat paleo.

fyi: you can't both be evil twins. there has to be one good one and one evil one. that is how the evil twin dichotomy works.

My husband also still eats SAD. Luckily, I do most of the cooking and, while I'll cook stuff that I know he wants (rice-a-roni, etc), it only makes it in the house if he specifically requests it. And I only buy one box at a time...8)

upload a pic to an image host (ex: photobucket.com). then when you are in your 'edit answer' box, click the "image" button next to the 101010 (code sample) button. paste the full image html code into the box. Click "Ok". The image should show up in the preview.

Hm... my fridge - well right now it's full of... loads of egg whites & eggs, salmon skin, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, pumpkin, spinach, unagi/eel, and salmon fillet, yep, that's it! :) I sorta eat the same thing every day so this is generally what's in my fridge ALL the time!

And my freezer is full of salmon belly, black cod, grass-fed beef, green beans, grilled vegetables & asparagus!

So tempted by this assignment. Kinda glad my fridge light is out or I'm sure I'd be setting up my tripod and shooting the mess that is my fridge.

Basics:

Much meat in various stages of defrost, brine and/or marinade.

Numerous jars and bottles of homemade fermented foods, Kombucha, Kimchi and plain yogurt.

The door is sagging beneath the weight of my collection of condiments, although I just recently through out a few that had too much sugar or soy or msg in them.

Tiny crisper drawer broken from piling veg and fruit into it like an overstuffed suitcase.

Keep 2 dozen eggs now.

Bottle of cream and until earlier today a bottle of raw milk. (I love that stuff)

Various jars of homemade jam and brandied cherries I still keep but do not now eat.

Cheese in a big plastic box.

Vinegars, preserved lemons, old bottle of mead-WTF

Then there's the stuff at the back I don't even get near. Old sweet pickle relish, pickled ginger, old jar of preserved lemons, Huge jar of lime pickle. See the theme there?

Oh yeah a plate of gluten free chocolate cookies that my freezer is too small to absorb, so I'm desperately trying to give away. Cookies are a weakness. Haven't had any since I made em 2 days ago, so far so good.

I can't believe I fit all that into a fridge that's not even full size.

Wow so neat and tidy! Ours is full of leftovers and junk - the door mostly still full of sauces and jams and jellies. The inside isn't very full (mainly some veg in the drawers) the fresh batch of farm eggs I just got and a couple bottles of milk / OJ left over from last week...
