If you’ve ever come home late at night from the gym, only to discover that you’ve got a bag of rice and one (slightly bruised) avocado in your cabinet, then you understand the particular pain of being thwarted by your pantry situation…or lack thereof.

In the first episode of our new healthy-living show House of Wellness, Mullen stops by the pad of CJ Frogozo—winner of America’s Most Inspiring Trainer 2016—to do a pantry makeover, using some surprising elements.

Plus, he’s got plenty of nifty hacks to up your food-prep game, like blending frozen berries (usually designated for smoothies) into a vinaigrette and storing nuts in the freezer for an extra-crunchy snack.
