Secrets of Success

Put The Date On Your Open Food Containers In The Fridge



I use the nutritional tracker to plan my meals for the moment; I need the help because I usually overdo it in one of the categories (fat, carbs, protein, calories). So I make a batch of black beans or rice at one time because I eat a lot of portions throughout the week. So that I know how fresh the item is, I take a sharpie and date the container. Most kitchens use day dots so this is my inexpensive way of knowing what is fresh and what is not.
