Comparing your refrigerator to a food blogger’s can feel like an exercise in self defeat (how do they keep theirs so organized all the time?). But according to Well+Good Council member McKel Hill, RDN and founder of Nutrition Stripped, there’s a purpose for keeping your fridge tidy that has nothing to do with showing it off for Instagram—and it’s actually easy to implement IRL.
“This truly is how my fridge looks 90 percent of the time and there’s a reason for it—not for Instagram or photography—it’s for work flow and using food items in the order they were put in,” she says. AKA, less wasted time and wasted food.
Her suggestion? Keep the items you use the most in the most convenient spots. For her and her fiancée, supporting good gut health is top priority, which means storing probiotic-rich foods like yogurts on the top shelf, plus fermented foods and her Health-Ade Kombucha in the door for grab-and-go convenience.

I've become quite evangelical about kombucha. It may seem extreme, but I have one a day, sometimes more. It's not a low-calorie or diet food, but I've incorporated it into my life because it works so well for me. There are many ways to get probiotics into your diet (I've also recently become obsessed with yogurt, Noosa brand mostly, because yogurt tends to be high in probiotics), but kombucha has saved my life. I usually drink it in the morning, and it makes me feel a million times better. (Side note: it's also great when you're hungover!)
I don't discriminate, but my favorite brand is Health-Ade. Sometimes I opt for GT's. Health-Ade has a spicy cayenne flavor that I cannot get enough of and a grape flavor that I find heavenly. I have come to be completely obsessed with not just the positive effects on my bloat, but also the taste.
