Vinny From Jersey Shore Shows Us His Totally Keto Fridge | Fridge Tours | Women’s Health
I try to have organic vegetables — I’m not
gonna lie, like I’m kind of lazy,
so I look for the organic frozen ones, you
know; you don’t to worry about, like, some
weird guy sneezing on it in the grocery store.
That’s more of my mom’s department,
like, going to the grocery store,
getting like, real broccoli, and cutting it,
and like, I don’t have time for all that.
If I had a broccoli farm in the back,
yes, I’d pick it myself,
but I live in Staten Island, so — I’m buying
my frozen friggin’ broccoli.
Yo what up!
I hear you’re here to see the fridge —
come on in, it’s this way.
Where all the magic happens —
some people say the bedroom; my magic happens in the kitchen.
I first got into eating low carb, keto, paleo,
because I wanted to lose weight.
When I made this change, I lost around 50 pounds.
I just turned 31, and I feel the healthiest I’ve ever felt.
Most of my Jersey Shore roommates
make fun of me for being keto,
even though they secretly
love it and admire me.
You know, when I was eating the cheese and pepperoni off of a slice of pizza when I was drunk,
everyone was like “what is wrong with
They call all clean eating “keto”.
Like, if like Ronnie’s like “yo I’m ketoing all week!”
I’m like bro, you’re definitely not eating keto,
you’re just not eating like ———.
Here is the fridge of the Keto Guido.
First thing that’s a big staple is grass-fed butter.
Keto people eat butter, okay?
We were taught that butter wasn’t good for you,
go have that, like, margarine stuff —
basically just cooking with chemicals.
I’d rather cook from a natural product; I
feel like my body knows what to do with it.
Everything I do, whenever it includes
it’s gonna be grass-fed, it’s gonna be
organic, free-range, stuff like that.
I’m Italian? Okay?
I don’t eat pasta, but I do eat some Italian staples,
like olives. So I have like, a ton of olives.
These are a specific one I can only really
get on Staten Island.
They are Sicilian olives.
They literally only sell them at one
store. They taste amazing.
Bottles of water, very fancy.
I use coconut milk for mostly everything
that I used to — that I would have milk with.
Unsweetened – so like my protein shakes.
I can’t tell you the health benefits of pickles —
I like them; they taste good.
Arugula is my favorite, but it doesn’t
stay fresh for that long.
Plus I’ll finish this in like
two to three days just from my meals,
so every other couple days I’m getting a
new baby arugula salad that I’m using.
This is truffle mousse — so this is basically liver.
A lot of health benefits of
eating organs and liver,
so this is like, an organ of that.
But – and you might think it’s nasty.
But it tastes pretty good; I actually like it.
Eggs are life.
So — free-range, cage-free, pastured eggs.
I always like the brown ones.
Everybody loves bacon.
I always keep bacon with me, everywhere I go.
Nah, I’m kidding.
Couple slices. Everyone thinks keto
people just eat bacon all day –
three slices, or three little pieces
with my eggs, I’m good; I’m satiated,
and it tastes good.
On to the cheese – so I got all
different kinds of cheeses in here;
even got grated cheese.
Not a ton of it. Don’t think that you can be keto and
just eat a bunch of dairy and cheese all day.
It’s not – I don’t think that’s the best thing for you.
I’ve always had a big sweet tooth.
I had a everything tooth.
Fried food, dessert…
For me, a sweet craving or dessert
craving — it gets satisfied so easily.
I have like, a piece of dark chocolate.
Now this is 90% cacao, 72% cacao, which is… not that low, but I try to go the highest amount of cacao
that I can, least amount of sugar in it.
I have a little piece like this, like a little
silver dollar or something, I’m good; I’m done.
Actually dark chocolate is
actually really good for you.
I’m Italian, again, so a lot of garlic.
I use garlic to cook with a lot of things.
Garlic is actually really good for you as well.
Lemons — I love lemons.
My salads are so simple; they’re just
literally arugula, olive oil, lemon, and salt.
And onions. That’s really it.
All of the action of my diet
comes from the freezer.
This freezer is full of meat. I get
my meat delivered to me by a service.
So it’s called Butcher Box — so, Butcher Box
delivers grass-fed beef to you —
heritage-breed pork, free-range chicken…
I like to change my meat;
I don’t eat the same thing all the time.
So I don’t eat, like, beef every day,
so, I got like, ground bison here — this is
grass-fed lamb as well.
I love eating grass-fed beef, so — ribeyes, strips…
Yeah so, companies send me a lot of dessert
as well, so this is a keto-friendly cheesecake.
Cheesecakes are pretty keto because they’re
mostly cheese and heavy cream and stuff.
And then these have to find that little sweetener, like
erythritol, or monk fruit, or something to sweeten it with.
A big question for people that want to eat
low-carb and sugar-free and keto is “can I eat fruit?”
They say that berries have the
least amount of sugar in them,
and I’ll throw them in a protein shake.
Well uh, that was my fridge!
So, if you guys don’t mind,
I have some things to do…
I have a date with bacon.
