The 8 Worst Foods In Your Fridge
Here’s a food list that need to be skipped when stocking up your fridge.
1. Frozen Vegetables with Sauce
Refrigerated vegetables are a surety of you getting nutrition of green vegetables without their getting rotten. From farm to stores, the vegetables are kept fresh by keeping them frozen. Yet, vegetables with added sauces packed in begs need to be stored out on shelves as they are containing extra fats and sodium content which equals a potion of butter on veggies.

Healthier and Good Option: You have already been suggested to use frozen plain vegetables with a bit of olive oil.
Flavored and savoring mayonnaise that you love to add in your sandwiches, burger or even salads are found in your fridge definitely. I bet on that! It’s appetizing and irresistible but what if you are told that just one tablespoon of your favorite mayonnaise contains about 100 calories? Will you still love as much as you did before.
