What a Waste!

Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this!  Please?!

I go to the grocery store with wonderful intent.  I buy healthy foods fully intending to eat them before they go bad.  And then I choose other foods at snack time.  I don't start dinner in time to cut up and cook the fresh vegetables that I wanted to serve.  And then a few weeks later, I'm reaching in the fridge and discover this...

 I apologize for the out of focus expiration date - it says Apr 9th.  We are officially two weeks past the sell by date.  I opened it well before the sell by date and ate some.  Once.

What about my girls?  I offered it.  They always say Why don't you buy the small containers?  Well I have, but then they eat a few bites and walk away - and it's not resealable.  So I buy the large containers so that I can give them a little and put it back in the fridge.  That's the intent.  Below is reality...
I wonder how much money I've thrown away in yogurt alone.  Okay, I really don't want to know.

Enter the Shelf Reliance solution:

Our whole family has decided they are wonderful treats without rehydrating.  Just let it melt on your tongue for just a moment and they are absolutely delicious.  One of these days, I'll have to try actually rehydrating them, maybe right after I make some granola!  In addition to being healthy and delicious, with a 1 yr opened / 25 yr unopened Shelf Life, I am not worried about this yogurt going bad before we eat them up!

The Yogurt Bites also come in
