    I read that 83% of Americans have prematurely thrown out a food item based on the sell by date. Food past this date is perfectly healthy to eat. 
    I also didn’t know dates on food are not federally mandated (with the exception of baby food). The “rules” are up to each state and often only established by the company providing the dates. I’m going to stick to the smell test from now on. Got to stop trusting those dates as they don’t tell us anything about the safety of food.

    Team!  I wanted to respect our state order to stay at home. So I chose to support through a financial donation to plant 10 trees in our national forests. Our beautiful great Smoky Mountains are going to be 10 trees greener after today.

    Meatless meals were hard this weekend. Especially when sharing food with the family. I’ll need to plan better.
