😤 I HATE that I had to do this.
Throwing food out, wasting food... It's something I really try to avoid.
However, this olive oil & this coffee... It had to go. It was no good.
Let's start with the olive oil.
A lot of people don't know that they may be consuming rancid olive oil. Olive oil is prone to oxidation which reduces shelf life. It's not super obvious when the oil goes rancid, especially if you're not consciously looking for it.
My tip, don't go getting those massive bottles or tin containers of olive oil because it's better value. Unless you're really chugging through it, you'll be consuming rancid oil by the end.
Recommendations for olive oil:
🔵 Organic, extra virgin, cold pressed, first pressed (ideal scenario)
🔵 Smaller sized glass, dark bottle
🔵 Store away from light and heat
🔵 Be conscious of not leaving the cap off too long. The more air that gets in, the more oxidised the oil, and the less good it is.
Now the coffee ☕️... I just haven't been drinking coffee much anymore, I simply don't need it. I do enjoy it (black of course 😉) but I've been good with my morning smoothie and tea.
As a result, this stuff has been sitting around way to long, months and months. Coffee is best fresh. Like the oil, it can go bad, probably quicker then most would think, and again... It's not super obvious. You do not want moldy coffee, you don't want oxidised coffee.
Lastly, it's not organic. I'm not an organic nut, but with coffee I feel it's important. It's one of the most sprayed crops in the world and with all the shit coming out about pesticides and glyphosate as of late, I'd rather bit take the chance. at Newcastle, New South Wales
