Look at Shelf Life on Food Items to Determine How Healthy It Is

Healthy Eating Tip: Look at Shelf Life

A lot of us are trying our best to eat as healthy as possible, but sometimes it's hard because there are so many factors to consider. One simple tip on how to determine how healthy a food really is for you is to check out its shelf life. The longer it lasts on the shelf, chances are the worse it is for you. Think about it: organic fruits and veggies hardly make it home before going bad but a loaf of white Wonder Bread can sit in your pantry for a month without the first trace of mold.

Fit's Tip: This rule does not necessarily apply to frozen foods as a bag of frozen veggies or fruit can sit in your freezer for over a month.
