THIS is what is currently inside Sydney food blogger Jenny Wong's fridge.
Just back from early Saturday morning fitness training in the park 🏃🏻♀️👊🏼💪 & time to make my green juice ... let me see if I have any greens in my fridge ☺️🍏🥒🥦🥑 .... My fridge situation right now thanks to one epic delivery from @mdprovodores ... all the goodness you need to recover from a workout, liver cleanse and glowing skin ☺️💚 Thank you @mdprovodores 🤗🤗😘💚 #jenskitchen #seetastedo#jengoesgreen
When you wake up Sunday morning and sigh with happiness that this is still your fridge situation ☺️🙏 💕@mdprovodores awesome farm fresh fruit and vege gift box fills my fridge. 🤗 🍇 .. and those grapes, crunchy, juicy and sweet 👌👌👌. The best and most variety fruit and vege you'll get is when it's direct from the Markets. I love the colourful Dutch carrots, yellow zucchini and the interesting shapes and colours of the tomatoes, as I don't see those varieties that often in normal local greengrocers or supermarkets. #jenskitchen #myfridge #seetastedo
Like many of us, she got halfway through January and knew she needed a change.
"Being a food blogger is a bit of a health hazard," Jenny told news.com.au.
"You're going to restaurants and events, drinking wine, eating out all the time and ordering dessert. So I thought I need to do something that's a big healthier."
She contacted a local providore from Sydney's Flemington Markets and placed a big order of fruit and vegetables.
"That day I just said 'send me anything green' and he delivered this green box." Jenny said.
Because she doesn't store her fruit and vegetables in containers, Jenny says the produce must be consumed quickly.
"It won't last if you don't eat it within three days. If it's longer than that, you need to juice it or find a creative way of cooking it," she said.
"When I got that box I had a family gathering, so it was no problem eating it within that time period."
She drinks a green juice everyday and often will blitz up any limp or on-their-last-legs vegetables to avoid wastage.
And yes, her fridge does contain the usual stuff like milk, cheese and sauces - they're stored in the fridge door, out of shot.
"I keep my recipes simple. I try to use really fresh produce and whole foods. I'm mostly pescetarian and if I do eat meat it's really good quality, grass fed meat," she said.
Jenny loves getting her produce from the markets because of the wide variety of fruit and vegetables, compared to the offerings from the major supermarkets.
"Most supermarkets sell four varieties of applies, but there are thousands of different apple types out there," she said.
"Same with tomatoes. We usually only see red tomatoes but there are so many varieties, even green or yellow tomatoes."
Juicing old vegetables is one food saving tip endorsed by OzHarvest, an organisation that aims to reduce our food waste.
Their other food saving tips include:
1. Storing food in containers in the fridge,
2. Storing vegetables like onions and potatoes in a cool dark place in sealed containers,
3. Freezing bread after you buy it,
4. Using old veggies in soups, quiches, curries and stews.
Now are you in the mood to see some other smug healthy fridges?
Real Housewife Yolanda Hadid's superbly extra fridge is the walk-in-wardrobe of fridges - for the uninitiated, she's the mother of models Bella and Gigi Hadid.
Her fridge is entirely made from glass and looks like the fruit and veg display section at the David Jones Food Hall.

GREEN EVERYTHING😍😍 Are you ladies getting enough greens in every day?? Try and make sure you are having regular greens in your diet. This doesn’t mean you need to eat it as a standalone meal! Having them as a side dish will do! Also beans are SUPER easy to grow at home and all you have to do is pick some off, boil them, add lemon, salt and pepper and they are an awesome addition to ANY dinner! www.kaylaitsines.com/app @alphafoodie
Not everyone’s fridge looks like this, especially when there are others living in your house. It’s easy to be tempted with things like chocolate and biscuits when they are right in front of you!!! My biggest tip is to put all the HEALTHY things at eye level. Place the unhealthy items at the BOTTOM. Generally when we open the fridge without purpose, we are just bored and looking for something to eat. If you place the healthy items at eye level, you are more likely to grab those first!!
