Shelf Life Myths Dispelled




Some people think as long as its in the fridge or freezer it’s good forever. Here are the 6 mysteries that we will start to make history.

1. Mayo  has a 2 month shelf life

  • Zero in my refrigerator; replaced with hummus.

2. Ketchup has a  4 month shelf  life

  • Does not exist in my kitchen; substituted hot sauce.

3. Mustard has a  8 month shelf life

  • Very common condiment to go bad.

4. Eggs – 1 month shelf life

  • Hard boil the rest if expiration is approaching.

5. Meat – 1 year freezer shelf life

6. Canned Veggies – 2 yearshelf  life

  • During client refrigerator clean outs, I’ve seen 4-5 year old can veggies! Replace with fresh greens.

Put together your game plan, execute, have fun, and get fit.
