I’ve long had a question about fridges.
You know the basic idea of plates looking like this:

Portions can be really confusing and people jump to excluding food groups or diets to ‘get healthy’. A plate like this helps build a good foundation for healthy eating. . . ?VEG = 1/2 the plate. Variety of colour. Can be fresh, frozen, canned. Raw or cooked. ?PROTEIN = Meat, eggs, tofu , legumes or nuts and seeds. Lean meat is key. Fat removed from steaks, lean mince, chicken breast and thigh, fish. Not crumbed, battered or processed meats. ?CARBS = 1/4 of the plate. Can include corn, bread, white or sweet potato, rice, pasta, cous cous. Wholegrain is best (but notice we’re including carbs in healthy eating!) . . By making this shift, even if you ate the same type of foods but changed the amounts – it would make a difference. This could even be a guide for lunch and dinner or how you order meals out (in the silly season that’s approaching). . . You don’t need to eat like this 100% of the time for every meal. But it’s a good guide to aim for most of the time. . . ✨I’ve got more detailed picture on my website (in my 7 pictures to master healthy eating post). Head over there to check it out.
Why on earth aren’t fridges half crisper section then?
I know this sounds like a rhetorical, laugh it off, assholey question.
But I have genuinely wondered it for a long time.
My last all-fridge had a tiny crisper section. We got Ben’s mum’s all-fridge when she moved and it’s still a fairly small portion of the overall capacity (though probably the largest crisper section I’ve ever had).
So, why do you think crisper sections are so small, relative to the size of a fridge?
