Chances are you may have taken a class with Los Angeles-based Cassey Ho. The certified Pilates instructor is the creator of Blogilates, a blog (no surprise there) and massively popular YouTube Pilates workout channel.

In addition to filming her workouts, the peppy Pilates pro also posts meal plans and recipes on her blog. Needless to say, we wanted to peek inside her fridge and see what she stocks for herself when squeezing in meals between Hundreds and Teasers.

“I’d like to spend more time cooking, baking, and trying out new recipes,” Ho admits. “In reality, there are a few staple dishes that I make as fast as I can when I’m super hungry and have no time. Unfortunately, that’s pretty much an everyday occurrence. It’s some form of a boil, steam, or saute.”

Here’s what she’s whipping up between filming, blogging, or running to teach one of her POP Pilates classes at Equinox in West L.A.

As a fitness trainer, what are some snacks in your fridge that you eat before and after a workout? I love making my metabolic smoothie in the morning before a workout! The ingredients are one banana, one cup kale, one half cup nonfat Greek yogurt, a handful of ice, one half cup almond milk, juice from a small lemon, and one pinch cayenne pepper. After a workout, I have brown rice or quinoa with some chicken and steamed veggies. Sriracha everywhere, of course.

Wow. That smoothie sounds great. I’m loving the big bunch of Brussels sprouts on the third shelf. What do you use those for? I toss them in a little bit of olive oil then roast them at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes to get them all crunchy on the outside. It’s perfection.

They’re the best. What’s that big melon to the left of them? How do you eat it? That’s spaghetti squash! I bake it, then pull out the strands and use it as the noodles for spaghetti.

Delicious. Gotta have avocados also. What do you pair them with? Everything! I love making sushi bowls and it’s perfect chopped up on the side. Also it’s a must for salads.

I agree. What about the French’s and Smucker’s jam? Why do you like those? Well, you gotta have mustard! That’s for my Portabello mushroom burger. The jam is awesome mixed in with Greek yogurt and topped with raw sunflower seeds. It’s for days when I need more sweetness in my life.

Got it. Everyone gets a sweet tooth once in a while! I don’t see any alcohol. Do you drink? Why or why not? Good observation. No, I don’t. It makes me go blind. Seriously. I’m highly allergic.

Scary! That miso looks interesting. What do you use it for? I love Asian cooking and it’s great for soups and sauces. What I originally bought it for was when I was learning how to make my Peanut Miso Kelp Noodles dish.

That looks amazing. And would be shocked to learn what you eat in the morning? What’s a typical breakfast? Two eggs scrambled with steel cut oats. —Jamie McKillop
