Sometimes, we all need a little nudge to eat our vegetables. Turns out, how you organize your refrigerator could be just the reminder you need.
A video by K.C. Davis has gone massively viral on TikTok (we’re talking 6 million views), and it’s all about how she makes her fridge “ADHD-friendly.”
Davis explains that she switches out the placement of her condiments and vegetables. According to her, the vegetable drawer is where things go to “die and rot.”
As the video begins, you’ll see Davis moving all of her condiments into the humidity-controlled drawers at the bottom of the fridge and placing the vegetables in the door. When she wants a specific condiment, she’ll go looking for it, so they don’t need to be front and center.
Instead, what’s helpful to her is placing her vegetables, snacks, and drinks on what she calls the “front row,” which is the door and shelves. This way, when she goes looking for something to eat, the healthy stuff is right there.
However, as this idea defeats the purpose of the humidity-controlled drawers, will it offer safe storage, or will you end up with a lot of spoiled veggies?
According to Jason Tetro, author of The Germ Code, it’s possible to keep your food good as long as it’s being stored properly. Opt for resealable bags and airtight containers for the best freshness, and be sure to keep an eye on your produce for any signs of spoiling.
If you were thinking of reorganizing your fridge and eating healthier, this might be the perfect method.
