Fridge Love: Organize Your Refrigerator for a Healthier, Happier Life—With 100 Recipes

Kristen Hong. Mariner, $19.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-0-358-43472-6
“My goal for you is that... you’ll turn your fridge into your most powerful tool for your health,” writes Hello Nutritarian blogger Hong in a debut that’s packed with plenty of insights but little flavor. After delving into her weight-loss story—she overhauled her fridge with “whole, natural foods” and lost 21 pounds in six weeks—Hong provides an extensive guide to storing fresh produce (whole bell peppers, for example, can be stored five to seven days in the crisper drawer) and where certain foods should be placed in a fridge (doors are warmer in freezer-top models, so she suggests storing less vulnerable foods, such as store-bought condiments, there). The book includes recommendations on items to store in mini fridges (such as precut veggies and long-shelf-life greens) and a fridge-cleaning schedule (Hong suggests a quick wipe-down once a week), leaving no fridge space unused and no veggie spoiled. Hong’s mishmash of vegan recipes, however, lacks the same level of zeal. While she offers some appetizing choices—like garden veggie minestrone soup—they aren’t enough to redeem such underwhelming fare as un-fried rice and rainbow collard wraps. The refrigeration advice is indispensable, but there are better resources for vegan recipes. Agent: Michele Crim, Miller Bowers Griffin Literary. (Dec.)
