Reclaim Your 'Fridge: Why You Need to Say Goodbye to Food From Last Year

Is that lime Jell-O or leftover meatloaf? A new year (or month!) means new beginnings, for you and your refrigerator. Now is a great time to start fresh, literally. 

  • Say goodbye to condiments that were opened last year (or even the year before!).
  • Most foods that have expired will not be glowing florescent green like in the movies. Contaminated foods may look or even smell normal, so always read the expiration dates.
  • Don’t forget the golden rule for leftovers: When in doubt, throw it out!
  • After tossing out that salad dressing from the family reunion last June, give the refrigerator shelves and drawers a good scrub with soap and water.
  • The best part? Only restock your refrigerator with healthy favorites your family will love. 

Out with the old, in with the new. Goodbye food poisoning, you’re so last year.
