This Is How Long You Can Eat Food For After Its Expiration Date

Food is something that we require to live. Although most of us tend to choose foods that are more tasty and palatable, natural foods tend to go bad and degrade. While some foods come with a clear expiration date label other foods are not so expressive.

So here is a short list that will indicate how many days you can eat food for despite their expiration labels.

Whether it be dairy, fruits, or protein, here is a quick guide on how long you can eat these foods for after they have supposedly ‘expired.’

Let’s start with raw meat or protein. While most times one can tell if meat has gone bad, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) recommends not eating meat if it has changed in color or if it has a ‘slimy or tacky’ feel to it.

Meat is not something that should be haphazardly played around with since the consumption of expired meat can result in some serious health problems. So if you’re unsure about your raw meat, just toss it out!

Tasting Table

Vegetables and salads. Fresh greens such as kale, lettuce, and spinach can go bad pretty quickly so a quick way to consume these would be to mix them into an omelet or blend them up into a shake.

But beware of salad greens since they usually have pockets of moisture which are a perfect hotbed for growing bacteria. So check each leaf carefully and if you feel some slimy greens, avoid eating it!
