So I buy “All natural” and “organic” bread now.
Sure, as a family we go through bread a lot faster than we did when there were just two of us. But I also don’t have the luxury to go food shopping twice a week. If I can help it, I try to not even go every week because I don’t have time, not to mention the wasted gas!
What do you do when your bread is frozen and you want to eat it now? Just pull a few slices off and pop them in the toaster on very light to defrost. Or, if you’re making a sandwich for lunch or something to eat later, just put the fixings on the frozen bread. By lunch time, it’ll be at room temperature and ready to eat.
Now I’m not afraid of our natural and organic breads going bad, I’m afraid of eating conventional breads!
As a side note, don’t put your bread in the refrigerator to keep it fresh, that is actually a way to get it to go stale faster. Apparently, 3 days in the refrigerator is equivalent to 1 day on the counter.
