These are food items that will keep in the refrigerator for a week or more. The only exception might be the fresh meats and fish that should either be eaten or frozen within 3 days.
1. milk – Per Wikipedia is a white liquid produced by the mammary glands of mammals. It is the primary source of nutrition for young mammals before they are able to digest other types of food. Early-lactation milk containscolostrum, which carries the mother’s antibodies to the baby and can reduce the risk of many diseases in the baby. The precise components of raw milk vary by species and by a number of other factors, but it contains significant amounts of saturated fat, protein and calcium as well as vitamin C. Cow’s milk has a pH ranging from 6.4 to 6.8, making it slightly acidic
3. butter – The best butter I ever had was butter a client brought us back from France. Amazing. Buy the best butter available, you’ll be able to tell a difference and you won’t have to use as much. DO NOT EAT MARGARINE OR BUTTER SUBSTITUTES!
4. cheese – According to Cheese.com
“Cheese is nutritious food made mostly from the milk of cows but also other mammals, including sheep, goats, buffalo, reindeer, camels and yaks. Around 4000 years ago people have started to breed animals and process their milk. That’s when the cheese was born.”
5. yogurt – Yogurt comes in many forms, from frozen to plain Greek Yogurt and is made from the milk of Cows, water buffalo, goats, sheep, camels and yaks. It can be a healthy substitute for sour cream and makes great dips and sauces. Try not to buy the stuff with the fruit in the bottom, most of those have added sugar.
