I’m back with a video on refrigeration in a tiny house – or in any dwelling that happens to have wheels. Any time you can unplug your house, that includes unplugging your fridge. So it may require just a little extra consideration when moving your tiny haven-home around the county or the country.
There’s a little sneak peek of me and the Tiny House Foodie kitchen a few months back before we removed the big monster energy-suck fridge and gave the place a much needed makeover. It looks better now, don’t you agree? And the color of my hair is always changing, so you will always be able to tell when I mix up new and old footage! lol!
Have you noticed how many tiny house folks are vegan or vegetarian? I have. It really is so much easier when traveling especially, to keep those things to a minimum so that you don’t end up throwing away expensive products when you don’t know how long they’ve been in the danger zone, and also so that your health isn’t at risk. Have you ever looked at a piece of meat and wondered if it is ok or not? Chances are, it’s fine. But nobody wants to be wrong about that!
And when you are… that’s when my little friend Digize comes to the rescue! There have been a number of times when I could tell I was eating something that was not cooked properly, but I didn’t want to offend the host and hostess. Sometimes you can tell when you bite into a nut or seed that they’ve gone off and the oils are rancid – stop eating immediately! I’ve even been served some fish that had an ever-so-slight smell… you know the one. And again… I knew it wasn’t going to sit well, but I did what you do when you love the cook and his or her good intentions. Sometimes the food doesn’t have to be off for my stomach to freak out over it, just a different cook in a different kitchen with a different set of bacteria. So I keep a bottle of Digize with me, ESPECIALLY when I’m traveling! It’s a blend of essential oils formulated for digestive support for those moments when something you ate just wasn’t… right. More info on the Digize blend of essential oils at Anoint-Ed.com.
In addition, while we are on the topic of cold storage and happy digestion, here’s a handy little chart for cooking various proteins so you get it “done” without turning it into something slightly more flavorful than the neighbor’s driveway.
