I tend to just judge the food myself, rather than go off the "use by" date, or "consume within x days after opening". |
It's crazy the way supermarkets sell you vast quantities of certain products and advise to consume the whole lot within 1 day, such as fresh loaves of bread, for example. Even if I was having a party with loads of people attending, I'd likely buy the food the day before... who is this food intended for?!
I've eaten fresh loaves up to a week after purchase and it's been perfectly fine. It's about time supermarkets got a bit more realistic. It just encourages wasting food.
