Foods you should not eat past their expiration date

I'm realizing knowing when to throw away food is one of those challenges you face as a "grown-up." First it's figuring out what to make for dinner every single night and then it's the challenge of trying to get those leftovers eaten before you need to throw them out. Jaime, my husband, and I are on completely different sides. If something is just coming up on its expiry date I'd throw it away where he'll still eat stuff long past it's overdue to be thrown out. According to an article posted by here are 20 foods you should never eat past their expiry date.

  1. Ground beef
  2. Ground pork
  3. Fish
