After six weeks of the Freshpet Fridge Challenge, we’ve been thrilled to see how pet parents are viewing fresh foods in a different light when it comes to feeding us and our fur-kids.
- A good source of protein
- A green vegetable
- Some sort of carbohydrates
- Keep our meal to a reasonable price
No more than 45 minutes later, we were hungry again. Slouched over on the couch and in what felt like a food coma, we longed for something else from the fridge, but knew it was off limits. As we quickly learned, the simple carbohydrates in the pasta and pasta sauce weren’t providing much energy from which our bodies could feed. Moreover, the higher sodium content found in canned pasta sauce and canned green beans made us question whether our Fridge Challenge meal could hold a candle to fresh food at all. At least the canned chicken was high in protein, but when mixed with everything else, it became apparent that without fresh options, healthy eating truly is a challenge!
