Chef and RD Allison Schaaf continues the series on BJ Fogg’s book, Tiny Habits.
Today’s episode focuses on Fogg’s concept of a “Super Fridge,” which he discusses in Chapter 6, page 185 of Tiny Habits.
What is a “Super Fridge”?
On the weekends, author BJ Fogg does all of the prep work for a week of beautiful, healthy meals – chopping veggies, making whole grains, etc. He celebrates at the end, looking at his fridge full of prepped, healthy food and saying, “beautiful”.
Fogg calls this his “Super Fridge” because it allows him to stay on track with his health goals, without the daily struggle of willpower and motivation.
Prep Dish is the same concept! It’s a system that makes it easy to prep healthy food for the week.
The second piece is, Fogg doesn’t let anything go to waste. His goal is to eat every item that he prepped for the week. This is a great way to focus on all the good things you can eat, rather than what you can’t when you’re trying to eat healthily.
Again, Prep Dish uses the same concept. You’ve already put in the time and effort to prepare healthy food, which makes takeout and less healthy options so much less tempting.
Having a “Super Fridge” creates an environment that prioritizes health and nutrition, and also quality family time. When meals are already prepped, dinner time can become a relaxing time to come together again.
