What's in the dietitian's fridge

I had someone ask me what's in my fridge, so here it is ( but I'm skipping the door holders!). I also want to put it out there that it is time for me to go to the produce store (love Choi's in Thorndale, very cheap) as I'm out of my favorite treat, fresh berries!

On the shelves of the fridge:Almond milk, salsa, hummus, natures pride double fiber whole grain bread, kalmata olives, sugar free chocolate swirl pudding, extra firm tofu, fat free feta, extra sharp cheddar, mozzarella, low fat mozzarella cheese sticks, container of cut of ready to eat veggies, romaine and arugula, zucchini, spinach, eggs, fleishmans butter, ground flaxseed,apples, grapes, clementines, tomatoes, onions, cucumber, mushrooms, Brussels sprouts

So what the heck am I going to do with all those ingredients? Let's start with dinners:Tuesday-chicken rollups stuffed with garlic spinach and mozzarella, roasted Brussels sprouts
Wednesday-mahi mahi over salsa, sauteed mushrooms, steamed broccoli
Thursday-whole green spaghetti with meat sauce ( aka crumbled soy), whole grain rolls, gingered carrots, mixed salad with veggies
Friday-whole wheat pizza (love wegman's) 1/2 broccoli, sauce, mozzarella for the kiddos and the other half caramelized onions, arugula and feta. (Then kiwi frozen yogurt for dessert!)

Snacks:Hummus and lentil chips, veggies
Salsa and lentil chips
Cheese sticks
Zucchini egg casserole (made the day before, lasts a week covered in the fridge)
Assorted cereal with added flax seed and fruit (alwYs keep frozen berries on the freeze)
Pancakes, flaxseed, berries (usually make once every month and freeze for "fast breakfasts"
Oatmeal, flaxseed, fruit, cinnamon
Hard boiled eggs
Leftover dinners

Lunch:Left over meals
Tuna sandwich loaded with celery, cut peppers, onions, and shredded carrots on spinach
Salads with feta, walnuts, and apples
