One of my biggest Bugaboo’s in life is the thought of eating expired food.
Personally I’d rather have my browser history broadcast on CNN then eat anything past it’s expiration date. I’m also a “Last Bite Eater Leaver” but that’s another story.
However, the fact is that many foods are perfectly fine for days, weeks, even a year past it’s “best by” date.
Here’s a list of a few to consider.
Frozen foods: They’re much like canned goods: pretty much expiration-proof. The exceptions? Meat.
Eggs: Here’s the barometer: Put an egg in a bowl of water. If it floats, the bacteria count is too high and unsafe too eat. Bacteria produces gases in high numbers, causing the egg to float, showing you it’s gone bad.
Pasta: Pasta is a dry good that is hard to spoil—it has no water content. As long as it doesn’t smell odd, you can keep pasta longer than the expiration date.
Bread: You can keep it dramatically longer than the date on the box if you put it in the fridge or freezer. As long as you don’t see mold, it’s good.
Fresh fruits and vegetables: Look at it, smell it, and feel it—and you can usually tell if a food is going down or not.
There’s a site entirely focused on debunking the myth of expiration dates on food.
EatByDate.com will help you determine whether when food has actually gone bad and even how to extend the shelf life by proper storage.

In addition to that, former President of Trader Joes will be opening a store this May called The Daily Table which will sell nothing but EXPIRED FOOD!
Until the Zombie apocalypse comes I’ll just be here throwing out my Organic bread that doesn’t go bad for another 2 days.
