View Full Version : Weekly food preparation

11-09-2006, 03:05 PM
Hi there,

I'm currently in the process of refining my diet, feel free to check out my fitday. I have been sick the last two days so it's incomplete.


The real reason for this thread is for help with my food preparation for the week.

I would like to make a batch of tuna, mayo and seeds and was wondering how long this might last in the fridge. Would it possibly last 7 days?

How long would boiled eggs last?

Is there a general rule for the shelf life of prepared food.

Boiled eggs usually a week, but I've never tested that.

Tuna/mayo, who knows I don't eat either. BUT i would think around the same time.

thanks for that ddegroff, guess my best bet is to test it this week.

Thats all you can do, if it smells funny don't eat it.

I prepear 5 cans of tuna at a time. I eat it over 5-7 days and it is fine.

FYI it is a myth that mayo spoils easily.

hey red, thanks. I like to mix seeds in with my tuna mayo, do you know if these will spoil easily in the damp mixture.

Tuna is dirt cheap at Sainsburys, only 29p a can and it tastes just as good as the expensive stuff. :thumbup:

Seeds shouldn't go bad either, especially if it's in the fridge. I found it started tasting stale after more than a week. Not bad, just stale. I wouldn't make more than you can eat in a week. But at 29p a can, maybe a I would....
