Free Up Your Fridge for the New Year

With New Year’s resolutions in full swing, now is a great time to purge your fridge and pantry of leftover holiday indulgences. To help get you started, you can download the FoodKeeper app, developed by the USDA with help from Cornell University and the Food Marketing Institute. The app can help you maximize the freshness and quality of the food you eat. First and foremost, take a look at the items below that often fall by the wayside:

  • Foods past the expiration date
  • Salad dressings
  • Condiments
  • Canned goods
  • Stale crackers or cereals
  • Leftovers/perishables from last year
  • Old spices (which lose their flavor over time)

One added benefit of a clean fridge? You know exactly what’s in it, what’s missing and what you need more of. With a clear view of what’s in your fridge, it might help you stick to that resolution to eat better.
