Better Ways To Eat These Foods

Once again we find ourselves this far in life only to find out we've been doing some things the wrong way! This time it’s food. For instance, most of us eat an apple from the outside inward, leaving about 30% of the fruit uneaten (thanks, apple core), starting from the top and eating downward allowing for 100% consumption of the apple. Drowning your pancakes in syrup is inefficient too, leaving the top saturated in syrup and those under it end up bone dry. Instead carve a hole in the middle of your stack and pour the syrup. This allows the sweet nectar of the morning to equally reach each pancake.  If you have a knife handy, opening oranges doesn’t have to be a hassle. Cut small slices off the top and bottom of the orange. Then, cut a slit in the side of the orange. The orange should unroll, leaving a nice row of slices.  Think there’s no way to eat a cupcake without getting frosting on your nose? Think again. Next time you treat yourself to a cupcake, remove the paper wrapper and slice the cake section below the frosting line horizontally. Then take the unfrosted piece and slap it on top to create a cupcake sandwich and frosting that ends up in your belly and not your nose. Hard-shell tacos tend to fall apart, leaving too many meat and cheese casualties. But wrapping larger soft tortilla around the crunchy taco will catch the food that would normally just fall out. Most people peel a banana rom the end with the longer stem. But if you peel from the bottom, it will be easier and the banana will contain fewer stringy pieces.
