Refrigerator Look Book: Kate Reil

Well+Good brings you a new kind of look book—an exclusive sneak peek into the refrigerators of NYC wellness practitioners.

KATE REIL, Yoga Instructor, Bend & Bloom, Kula Yoga Project, and Program Director, Little Flower Yoga

Lives in: Boerum Hill, Brooklyn

W+G: Where do you go to stock your fridge?

Kate Reil: For regular groceries I go to Brooklyn Fare on Hoyt and Schermerhorn. But I try to buy most of my staples at greenmarkets around the city. Most of the stuff in this picture is from a greenmarket I hadn’t been to before in Park Slope, on 5th Ave. and 4th Street on Sundays. I also go to Trader Joe’s about once a week and stock up on nuts and dried fruits because I love making granola and giving it to people.

W+G: Everyone has a food they can’t live without. What’s the one thing that’s always in your fridge?

KR: Honestly? Sabra hummus and red cabbage. Oh, and seltzer. It’s always time for a seltzer. If I’m lucky, pickles. Nothing is better than a good pickle.

W+G: Favorite fruit or vegetable that’s in season right now?

KR: How could I deny being from Warwick and say anything other than apples? Honey Crisp in particular—so delicious! I also love me some brussel sprouts, and they’ve just started to peek out, too.

W+G: What’s in that jar on the top shelf on the left-hand side? Looks yummy!

KR: It is indeed! It’s salsa that my friend Tali made.  She works on a goat cheese farm in the Adirondacks called Asgaard Farm, and she made lots of salsa from the garden this summer.

W+G: Something you like to eat or drink before or after a yoga class?

KR: Usually nothing, but on Thursday nights, after I teach at Bend & Bloom, a bunch of us gather for beers and popcorn at 4th Ave Pub. A good way to practice the Middle Path.
