Happy Monday, yall! As happy as Mondays can get of course. Can we talk about food expiration details for a second? Are they all real or just a way for companies to get us to buy their products more often? Say someone accidentally left their open package of ground flaxseed out on the counter for a week and realized that it was supposed to be refrigerated after opening–would anything actually bad happen? Asking for a friend…..
Okay, fine. It was me. I was trying to be healthy for 5 minutes while making a smoothie and left the dang flaxseed out. Since I purchased it online, there was a price tag over the all-important refrigeration details and I just so happened to peel back that sticker yesterday to discover them. Insert eye roll here. I checked out the inside of the bag and smelled the contents, but it didn’t seem too suspect, so I put it into the fridge. Tomorrow I’m going to live life on the wild side and put some in another smoothie. If I don’t post on here ever again, you know why.
Until next time, keep on the sunny side.
