The vegetables might be a little misshapen, but they’re still perfectly good to eat.
here are plenty of restaurants out there that take the time and effort to make sure that the ingredients they use are locally sourced and of good quality, but Local Mission Eatery took the extra step of opening a small market to give shoppers access to its goods.
The other day, I wondered how my grocery store spending matched up with the old U.S. Department of Agriculture’s food pyramid, which they retired in 2011 (I have yet to accept their new plate chart), so I pulled up an old receipt I had on file to see how it would turn out. My dairy spending tends to be on the lower end because I usually will buy a tub of yogurt and a carton of organic milk every other grocery shop. Anyway, this is among the things I sometimes think about, which makes me perfect marriage material if you ask me! Excuse me while I load up on some more carbs.
The rising popularity of Greek yogurt in the past few years has made more room for it on the limited amount of space in refrigerated grocery store shelves, and less for other some of the other items that used to be share that space, to the dismay of some shoppers. I suppose I’m one of those people who have switched to Greek yogurt and helped its shelf-growth—I find that yogurt from Stonyfield and Dannon are too sweet now. Have you been affected by the Great Greek Yogurt Takeover?
I have never seen a salvage store like Greene County Damaged Freight and Foods, which sells food at deep discounts because they’ve reached their sell-by dates or have been damaged during transportation, but I would certainly not be averse to shopping at one.
How long is too long to keep food that you buy.
